Ming Court Opens Wan Chai Outpost

Business travellers will now no longer have to venture across to Mongkok to enjoy the Michelin-starred Chinese cuisine of Ming Court, with the opening of Ming Court Wanchai at Great Eagle Centre, next to the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Ming Court, Wanchai is part of Langham Hospitality Group’s collection of award-winning Cantonese restaurants and those in Hong Kong and Shanghai have been awarded Michelin stars.

The new restaurant is the epitome of Chinese culinary excellence, serving gastronomic creations that showcase an artful balance between modern sensibilities and traditional Cantonese craftsmanship.

At Ming Court, Wanchai, guests can look forward to a refined dining experience underpinned by authentic Cantonese culinary techniques using the best globally sourced produce. The dining experience is further elevated with a curated selection of quality wines; exclusively sourced sake from renowned Japanese master brewer Naohiko Noguchi; and premium tea pairings.

The restaurant is helmed by culinary director Tsang Chiu King, who led Ming Court at the former Langham Place Hotel (now Cordis, Hong Kong) when it achieved two Michelin stars. Also working alongside Chef Tsang in the kitchen is executive chef Chan Hon Cheong, who first worked together with Chef Tsang, his mentor, at the start of his culinary career back in 1991.

“At the new Ming Court in Wanchai, different from our other restaurants in Hong Kong, we are presenting a more interactive and contemporary dining experience; diners can expect sake pairing menus, choose to dine more casually over the bar for lunch, enjoy pre-dinner drinks and and tapas, or celebrate with a specially curated menu at the Chef’s table,” says Howard Lam, global director of Chinese Cuisine, Langham Hospitality Group.

One of the key highlights is the restaurant’s interactive, multisensory Chef’s Table experience, designed for 8-10 guests. Set within a private room, with a large window looking into the kitchen, guests can enjoy live cooking demonstrations by Ming Court’s experienced culinary team as well as detailed explanations of ingredients and dishes. Seasonal pairings and tailor-made menus are also available.

Designed by award-winning interior designer, Steve Leung, the restaurant’s elegant and contemporary interiors are beautifully accented with Oriental motifs. An understated, modern sophistication defines the dining area while the bar exudes an energetic and dynamic vibe with its custom-designed lighting, which alternates seamlessly between day and night.

In addition to the main dining room and bar, the restaurant boasts six private dining rooms named after famous teas: Gongmei, Longjing, Dancong, Yugui, Shaofeng and Pu’er. These rooms are perfect for exclusive events or for guests who prefer a more private dining experience.

To celebrate the opening, Chef Tsang will be introducing new specialities, such as Sautéed Tiger Prawn Slices with Asparagus; Steamed Scallops stuffed with Minced Shrimp and Crab Roe; and Braised Winter Melon, Carrot and White Fungus in Superior Broth – an intricately prepared vegetarian option that’s reminiscent of the smooth texture of bird’s nest.

Meanwhile, the new bar at Ming Court, Wanchai serves Chinese tapas, such as Suckling Pig with Minced Shrimp and Foie Gras Paste; Pan-Seared Scallops with Ginger and Spring Onion; and Deep-Fried Pumpkin and Pork Jowl Strips in Black Truffle Sauce. These fun bites are perfect for pairing with the bar’s refined range of whiskies, spirits and specially designed tea-based cocktails, like the Pimm’s Forest, which blends Chinese black tea with classic English Pimm’s No. 1, elderflower syrup and lemon juice.
