From now to February 28 the Holiday Inn Golden Mile’s award-winning Cantonese Restaurant, Loong Yuen, will be serving a variety of hearty cooked oyster dishes as part of a special oyster promotion.
The delicious oyster dishes are not only the perfect accompaniment to Hong Kong’s cooler climate but a fantastic introduction to those who know little about Cantonese cuisine or have never tried cooked oysters. For those already in the know, this is an excellent way to enjoy these oceanic wonders.
To warm-up in the cool season, try dishes such as Stir-fried Minced Dried Oyster with Diced Celery, Water Chestnut and Carrots served with Lettuce or Poached Rice with Fresh Oyster, Minced Pork and Dried Fish in Supreme Soup.
If you’ve never tried food cooked in a hot pot, go for Baked Oyster with Ginger and Spring Onion in Hot Pot, as this method of cooking really enhances flavours and gives food a beautiful silky texture.
Like strong flavours? Then try the Baked Oyster with Spring Onion and Port Wine. Or perhaps go for the Baked Oyster stuffed with Onion, Bacon and Cheese.
If you like oysters fried then opt for the Pan-fried Sweetened Dried Oyster, Deep-fried Oyster served in Lettuce, Deep-fried Oyster with Spring Onion in Teriyaki Sauce or Pan-fried Diced Oyster with Egg and Celery in Chiu Chow Style. There are also sautéed options to explore: Sautéed Oyster in Two Style with Home-made Sauce and celery served with biscuit pocket.
Each and every oyster dish is delicious and will surprise new-comers while delighting seasoned palates.
