<<18th November 2020 – Hong Kong>> Located in the heart of Central, Hong Kong, 1-Michelin starred Duddell’s by JIA Group serves authentic Cantonese cuisine within a beautiful art space. Executive Chef Li Man-Lung introduces new seasonal dishes to the set lunch, a la carte menu, and dim sum menus, bringing a hearty taste of autumn and winter to Duddell’s.
New Autumn and Winter a la Carte Dishes at Duddell’s Hong Kong
Drawing inspiration from a variety of Chinese regional cuisines, Chef Li Man-Lung blends old and new techniques to produce the latest additions to Duddell’s menus, with up to 30 new dishes.
New a la Carte dishes from the selection of chef’s recommendations include the Pan-fried Hokkaido Scallop with Homemade Crab Roe Sauce (HK$228/person), which is created from thick and fresh Hokkaido scallops that are first dried and powdered with fresh crab meat. The oil from the crab shell mixes with the crab’s rich sauces, creating a beautiful crab roe sauce – pan-fried together with the scallops until golden-brown. The pairing between succulent scallop and aromatic crab roe ultimately brings out the umami-rich flavours of this dish. Crispy Suckling Duck (HK$368/piece) is a classic Cantonese dish that uses the “Pipa Duck” processing method. The duck is first marinated with an in-house blend of spices, then air-dried, smoked, grilled, and finished with a pour of scalding hot oil that imitates the traditional cooking process of crispy chicken. This creates a golden-red hue on the duck, with crispy skin and succulent meat.
Another new poultry dish not to miss is the 2-way Ancient Salt Baked Chicken (HK$1,088/piece), which must be ordered 24 hours in advance. The unique Guangdong Hakka dish uses local yellow chicken that is marinated with sand ginger, then cooked in a clay pot with salt for 45 minutes. This cooking process retains the crispy skin of the chicken and gives the meat a smooth, silky texture. For the second course, the chicken oils and giblets are cooked together with the rice to create a fragrant and tangy casserole. Braised Pearl Rice in Ishinabe with South African Dried Abalone (HK$248/person) features Japanese abalone that has been farmed in South Africa. At Duddell’s, this abalone is braised into a tong sum state – soft and chewy, with a strong fragrance. The pearl barley is simmered together with the abalone sauce during the braising process, giving the dish a sublime umami flavour.
Braised Imperial Bird’s Nest in Casserole (HK$688/person) is another new Chaozou-inspired dish, created by boiling the lean pork, chicken, ham and dried scallop for 8 hours. This results in a traditional Chaozhou broth that brims with flavours of ham and seafood. Braised Fish Maw (HK$428/person) is first stuffed with fresh homemade shrimp paste, then paired with thick chicken jus for a delectable pairing.
All-time signature favourites at Duddell’s Hong Kong include the Double Boiled Fish Maw with Coquito Nuts and Chicken (HK$428 per guest), a version of the Cantonese soup that is popular for its nutritional and body-warming qualities during colder months. Chef Li creates the soup with coquito nuts from east Africa—a fruit that looks like a miniature coconut with similar flavours, together with premium red date and black chicken. Served in a coconut, this delightful double-boiled soup is not only delicious on the palate, but also beneficial for health and beauty. Another crowd-favourite is the Poached Miyazaki A4 Wagyu Beef in Hot and Sour Clear Broth (HK$628), loved for its unique flavour and tender texture of the beef. The beef is only slightly poached with Chef Li’s special hot and sour broth that is both acidic and spicy.
