It seems that the chills are finally hitting Hong Kong this month. If you're on the lookout for a warm treat, you're in luck. Chinese restaurant Mott 32 is introducing a winter's specials menu, exclusive from December till the end of January.
Mott 32's winter menu features two starters. The Wagyu Beef Cheek with Szechuan Chilli Sauce is a delicate combination of sweet tender beef and spicy chilli. Whereas the Cold Free Range Chicken with Black Truffle is our favorite traditional Chinese dish with black truffle as a modern touch.
They're definitely very appetizing looking, but if you're looking for mains, here are the specials. The Braised Huadiao Chicken with French Chestnut showcases chicken marinated in Chinese Huadiao and braised with chestnuts. The Steamed Egg with Fresh Abalone and Iberico Pork on the other hand, is again a modern retake of the traditional homemade dish. Other seasonal specials include the Wok Fried Purple and Yellow Cauliflower with Szechuan Cured Sausage, and the Alaskan Crabmeat Fried Rice with Golden Conpoy and Black Garlic.
If you still haven't made up your mind, here's a heart-warming note. With Mott 32 Vancouver opening in Canada, Mott 32's culinary team has also made sure that their signature dish is also available in Hong Kong. The Slow Cooked Wild Pacific Salmon with Organic Spicy Bean Paste is a generous preview of their Vancouver branch menu, opening in January 2017.
Of course, no meal is complete without a delicious dessert. On this Mott 32 is offering two mouth-watering options. The Black Sesame Sphere with Small Kumquat Bites and Tofu Ice Cream is a seamless integration of kumquat and tofu ice cream into black sesame mousse, a play on the famed traditional Chinese treat. Another addition is the Bamboo Green Forest, green tea sponge cake layered with Yuzu cream, yogurt, and lime sorbet, its name derived from Anji bamboo forests in China.
To make sure your dining experience is primed to perfection, Mott 32 reaches up to 7,500 square feet and can accommodate up to 170 diners at a time. Book now to enjoy a luxurious winter special at Mott 32 in Central!
