    Leung Fai Hung, Executive Chinese Chef at InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong

    Guangdong native Chef Leung Fai Hung has enjoyed a long career with the hotel since 1995. In 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively, Hoi King Heen was rewarded 1 Michelin star under his stewardship. As an opinion leader, Chef Leung had also been invited to contribute to prominent local publications such as Hong Kong Economic TimesOriental Daily andMichelin Guide Hong Kong. He is also President of the Hong Kong Chinese Chefs Association.

    40th Anniversary Tasting Menu by Chef Leung Fai Hung

    The 8-course 40th Anniversary Tasting Menu by Chef Leung, priced at HK$1,088+10% per person and limited to 20 guests per night, takes guests on a gastronomic journey through rare regional Chinese ingredients, historic and disappearing recipes as well as chef’s own signature dishes through the ages. Menu highlights include Crispy Rolls filled with Pork Brain, Liver and Fungus, a popular dish among the mass public during the 1950’s due to its affordability, served with the rare Caul Fat, a thin and lacy membrane of pork fat created through an often-arduous process. Due to the complexity of the cooking process, only a handful of master chefs are still capable of crafting this dish and it is barely served nowadays. TheDouble Sea Conch Soup with Tofu Chrysanthemum was a very luxurious delicacy during the 1960’s, with bean curd skillfully sliced into the shape of a blooming flower. The hearty soup is cooked for 5 hours and is finished with Chinese ham, and a light shaving of black truffles from Yunnan Province. Steamed Spotted Garoupa with Salted Fish and Preserved Meat is an old-time dish that originates from Yangjiang city in southwestern Guangdong, a dish that is no longer offered on menus in Hong Kong due to its long preparation time and craftsmanship required. The salted fish symbolizes the “dead”, while the garoupa symbolizes the “living” and it is this combination that gives the dish the perfect balance of flavor.

    The Simmered Chicken Fillets with Shrimp Paste is another one of Chef Leung’s take on a classic yet disappearing dish in Chinese cuisine, originating from Shunde, Guangdong Province. This is a dish that requires high technical skill through deboning a cooked chicken and stuffing with a mixture of prawns including Argentinian Red Prawns that enhance the flavor. Steamed Rice with Minced Beef and Dried Citrus Peel, topped Pork’s Fat, is a rustic Chinese style home cooking dish loved by all, featuring Australian minced wagyu, pork’s fat and 10-year dried Tangerine peel.

    The Deep-Fried Milk Rolls and Mandarin with Milk Tea Custard is a dessert that also originated from Shunde in China, very close to Chef Leung’s hometown, reinvented with the idea of milk tea custard. Finally, the menu ends withHomemade Almond Cream with Egg White, a delectable Cantonese classic created in Chef Leung’s rendition, with a modern twist.
