The gastronomic Cantonese restaurant LiLi, whose decor is inspired by famous Chinese operas, welcomes the Chinese New Year on 18 February. To mark the occasion, Chef Chi Keung Tang has created an exceptional six-course menu, offering flavourful, traditional dishes with typical Hong Kong specialities and featuring seafood: abalone, lobster and king crab, amongst other delicacies.


“I wanted this menu to be a window of discovery for our Western diners, presenting the full range of flavours and variety of Cantonese cuisine. By drawing on traditional – and even some ancestral – recipes I wanted to offer our patrons the very finest in Cantonese dining.”
