A variety of health-preserving dietary methods are popular nowadays. The popular "Five Elements and Five Colors" method is one of them. The five elements: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth, relate to the five internal organs "Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung, Kidney" ", which are also associated with the colors: Green, Red, Yellow, White, and Black. If you eat more food of the corresponding food of the five colors, you can be healthier. This theory coincides with the design concept of W Hong Kong based on the theme of the enchanted forest, and at the same time integrates the five elements that are intertwined within the forest, such as the diamond-shaped sand wall in the hotel lobby, the huge red fiery W logo, giant wooden pillars, etc. W Hong Kong with its focus on energy and vibrancy, has launched the Color Splash detox afternoon tea in September, which includes 10 colorful savory and sweet items, each with a dash of vibrant color.
Healthy and clean eating is the new trend. Our team of chefs skilfully use different colors and textures to create layers of goodness, creating five exquisite savory items. The ingredients of the savory items come in five main colors, including green: avocado, basil leaves, zucchini; red: purple cabbage, carrots; yellow: turmeric hummus, corn; white: quail eggs, buffalo mozzarella; black: black quinoa, mushroom. Chef selects the hot turmeric spice to create the Ginger and turmeric hummus, sesame, roasted corns and grissini. The creamy hummus is slightly spiced with a touch of ginger and turmeric. The multiple textures of sesame, corn and grissini make you want to have one bite after another. After a taste of rich flavors, refresh your palate with a special salad: Daikon rolled with sea eel and cabbage. Eel is chosen as the main ingredient as it contains a great assortment of vitamins and minerals. It is paired with basil leaves and pickled radishes for refreshing tastes that are simply unforgettable. Other highlights include: Crushed avocado with shrimp in yuzu ponzu, bell pepper, spring onion, crispy tortilla, Quinoa salad with mushroom and poached quail egg on spinach bread, and Grilled zucchini in beetroot bun, pesto and mozzarella cheese.
No one can resist the temptation of desserts! Executive pastry chef Baptiste Villefranque and his team uses a variety of fresh and colorful fruit to highlight the five attractive desserts. The ingredients, which come in five main colors, are rich in antioxidants and vitamins including, green: avocado; red: raspberry, strawberry, yellow: apricot, mango; white: coconut, lychee; black: chia seeds. The prelude for these sweet treats is the vegan dessert of Coconut and fresh mango chia seed pudding. The thick and smooth coconut milk and the chia seeds with high antioxidant content creates the perfect match, topped with the succulent mango and crispy coconut flakes, a blast of flavors erupting in your mouth. Chef adds in edible roses to the dessert, adding a romantic touch to the Raspberry rose lychee tart. The slightly sour raspberries and the sweet lychee gives a slight tingle to the tongue. Other highlights include: signature Avocado goji berries chocolate brownie, Rosemary apricot oats crumble, and the gluten free Strawberry mint pavlova.
