<<20th September 2022 – Hong Kong>> The Legacy House at Rosewood Hong Kong celebrates the turn of the season with the return of its annual Hairy Crab menu by Chinese Executive Chef Li Chi-Wai. Drawing on age-old Cantonese cooking techniques, Chef Li invigorates traditional recipes in new and innovative ways. The seasonal hairy crab menus will be available from mid-October onwards until the end of season.
New Hairy Crab A la Carte Menu and Set Menu at The Legacy House
The Autumn season marks the much-anticipated return of the novel Hairy Crab menu at The Legacy House. Chef Li presents a delicately prepared menu featuring premium hairy crabs sourced from Lake Tai (Taihu) in Mainland China. Crowned the “King of Crabs,” the coveted hairy crab is renowned for its mild, sweet taste and succulent texture. This year, guests of The Legacy House can also enjoy the option of adding luxurious seasonal Alba white truffles to all Hairy Crab dishes with additional charges (to be confirmed).
The crustacean features in a range of premium Cantonese dishes ranging from the Steamed Hairy Crab (8 Tael at market price) simply steamed in ginger and a delicate herb broth, to gastronomic delights such as Steamed Shanghainese Pork Dumplings (HKD160/2pcs) with hairy crab cream, Braised Rice with Fish Maw and hairy crab cream in clay pot (HKD320 per person), Braised Tofu with scallops, all served with hairy crab cream (HKD360), Braised Chinese Cabbage Roll with noble bottle tree nut and hairy crab cream (HKD360), and Stewed Fish Maw with hairy crab cream, minced shrimp, pork and mushroom (HKD680) . The perfect balance of flavour and texture, Braised Green Bean Noodles with Hairy Crab Paste (HKD2,880) requires a two-day advance order.
Pair the meal with a specially chosen Chinese wine, Guyuelongshan, Long Wen 15-Year, for HKD138 per glass or HKD1,380 per bottle, or Vin Jaune – Chateau d’Arlay 2009 for HKD1,880 per bottle to share.
