An Auspicious Affair
A delightfully delicious dinner party marked Li Feng’s bright beginning 38
The new Li Feng restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta has opened its gates and is presenting artful and authentic Cantonese cuisine. Maximilian von Reden, Mandarin Oriental Jakarta’s General Manager, welcomed VVIPS and introduced the two master chefs behind Li Feng: Chef Chang See Loy and Chef Huang Jing Hui, also known as Chef Fei. The restaurant’s name means “abundance of beauty”, which is evident in the masterful menus that are enhanced by a beautiful interior that embodies the seafaring journey between China and Indonesia. Dinner started with fresh cucumbers marinated with chili, awakening the palates for Li Feng’s signature Deep-fried Swan Dumpling with Black Pepper Duck Meat. Fresh Dalian Abalone Tart, Braised Hele Crab with Japanese Rice in Hoisin
Sauce and more richness from land and sea were the other masterpieces that night. The night ended satisfyingly with the Three Dessert Platter: a rice dumpling with frog jelly, blueberry snow-skin dumpling and pomelo sago cream, plus a fortune cookie drawing for eight lucky prizes.
