Lung Hin at the Marco Polo Ortigas celebrates the coming Chinese New Year with a special Harmony set menu. Executive chef Raymond Yeung has created a menu combining the flavors and techniques of eastern and western cuisine.
You can start off your meal at Lung Hin with two of their new dimsum dishes, the Vegetarian Dumpling and the Fried Seafood Pumpkin Ball.
Roasted Turkey Salad with Pomelo in Sweet and Chili Dressing. Lettuce and an assortment of cubed vegetables with shredded pomelo is topped with sliced roast turkey and drizzled with sweet chili dressing. Flavors are unique, leaning more to Thai tasting because of the dressing. It’s the presentation that I’m iffy about, they used turkey slices when it would have worked better if cut into cubes or strips.
Soup was a Doubled Boiled Chicken Soup with Maitake Mushrooms. It tasted on the medical side similar to si but but toned down in strength.
Deep Fried Bacon wrapped Shrimp Roll with Mayo. This is an easy dish to like, wrap the classic shrimp roll/ball in bacon before deep frying then toss it in home made mayo. It’s reminiscent of the shrimp salad minus the fruits. I guarantee this will be wiped out in one turn of the lazy susan.
Pan Fried Beef Tenderloin with Kyoto Sauce. I have no idea what constitutes Kyoto sauce as it did not taste particularly Japanese. The beef was well cooked, tender while the sauced had the balance of sweet and savory. A dish that is very familiar to the palate.
Steamed Garoupa with Pickled Ginger and Plum. Eschewing the usual light soy sauce and instead using ginger and plum gives this dish a fresh take. The slight sweet and sour flavors played together very well.
Pork Tendon with Straw Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce. I’m not fond of pork tendon so I stuck with the mushroom and the lettuce, tasted as it should be.
Deep Fried Crispy Pigeon. Crisp skin and very flavorful meat makes this one of the best in Manila.
Fried Rice with Turkey and Assorted Seafood. A good, healthier fried rice with less oil and turkey cubes replacing the usual roast pork pieces.
Watermelon Jelly. A refreshing finish to a meal is their special holiday dessert of alternating layers of watermelon jelly and almond jelly. I must have had more than 2 pieces of these, loved the right amount of sweet watermelon flavor than did not overpower the classic almond.
