9th July 2020 – (Hong Kong) Recently reconceptualized at the trendy K11 MUSEA, Mr.Ming’s Chinese Dining is set to become the hottest destination for refined Chiu Chow and Cantonese food. As a joint venture between Ming Fat House (Foxglove, Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour, Frank’s Library) and Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant by BUICK Management, Mr. Ming’s offers a fresh take on traditional Chinese recipes with no artificial ingredients or preservatives added, featuring a mouthwatering selection of Chiu Chow marinated, special Shantou, poultry, seafood and dim sum dishes.
The menu is spearheaded by one of the most respected Chinese cuisine chefs locally and regionally, Executive Chef Hui Mei Tak, who was crowned one of the ten best chefs in China. Starting his apprenticeship at just 16 years and having spent 8 years solidifying his culinary foundation as a chef, Chef Hui has over 30 years of experience and also owns a ChiuChow restaurant back in his hometown. His passion for quality ingredients and rich food culture enables him to honour traditional Chinese cooking with creativity at Mr.Ming’s.
Inspired by vacation cabins in the 70s and designed in contemporary shades of honey-toned wood and a mix of mineral and emerald green wallpaper, the dining room creates a warm background for colourful seating inspired by retro car seats and coin wrappers with a custom rattan wall sconce and plant to radiate a garden ambience to the dining space.
Spread over two storeys, Mr.Ming’s warmly invites you into the home of its eponymous owner: an avid fan of the Chinese Arts, a poet, antique and gold coin enthusiast, and obsessive gourmand. Mr. Ming’s prestigious family hails back to the Jin dynasty, and his respect for tradition is showcased in a range of abstract Chinese artwork and artefacts displayed throughout the restaurant, from his coins collection to a personal wine cellar featuring rare boutique finds, including both New World and Old World wines featured on the extensive drinks menu that compliment beautifully with Mr.Ming’s refined dishes.
Classic Chiu Chow and Cantonese Dishes
At the heart of Mr.Ming’s renowned family lineage is his grandfather’s book of prized classic ChiuChow and Cantonese dishes — proprietary recipes passed down through generations.
