Tatler Unlisted: A Dining Experience At The Brand New Man Wah Chinese Restaurant
After a six-month-long renovation, Mandarin Oriental’s signature Chinese restaurant Man Wah is ready to unveil its new look and thrilling new culinary offerings designed by celebrated chef Wong Wing-Keung. Re-opening on 1 February, the restaurant is set to reinvigorate the conversation around Cantonese food culture, with chef Wong’s inventive interpretations that are rooted in time-honoured techniques and practices.
Established in 1963, Man Wah at Mandarin Oriental has set the standard for Cantonese cuisine for decades. Its latest transformation pays homage to the past, present and future of Chinese culinary arts as imagined by chef Wong, a third-generation Cantonese chef who first joined the restaurant in 2011 as sous chef before taking the helm of Yee Tung Heen at The Excelsior, leading the restaurant to gain its first Michelin star. Chef Wong eventually returned to Man Wah in 2018 to take the dining institution to new heights, while never losing sight of the foundations of Cantonese cuisine.
The excitement around the relaunch of Man Wah has now been amplified with the launch of Tatler Unlisted, a new platform introducing weekly exclusive lifestyle offers. For the first Tatler Unlisted experience, chef Wong and the Man Wah team are offering a special tasting menu—inclusive of a surprise signature dish—designed for Tatler guests only. The experience kicks off with a welcome drink of wild chrysanthemum oolong tea, brewed in a special tea tower using the slow-drip method; guests can also enjoy a complimentary baijiu cocktail with their meal.
The six-course menu, priced at HK$1,488 per person, will take diners on a journey through the culture and nostalgia of Cantonese cuisine, with dishes ranging from delicate chilled and marinated abalone to braised pork belly with taro—a recipe refined for the modern palate. Each Tatler Unlisted offer is only available to purchase for one week, but the menu is available to Tatler guests who purchase the experience for lunch or dinner, pending social distancing regulations, from 1 February to 30 June 2021.
