Passport to…Hong Kong

Hong Kong cuisine is heavily influenced by Cantonese cuisine with international flair from Europe, Japan, Korea, and other Southeast Asian countries. Hong Kong provides an unlimited variety of foods and a complex array of fusion cuisines, giving the country its label of “Gourmet Paradise.”

Throughout August, we’ll be taking you on a journey through this “Gourmet Paradise,” showing off some of the fusion-style cuisine that is popular in Hong Kong.

For example, the featured appetizers exemplify flavors from across Asia. The Blackened Salmon gives a nod to Japan with a savory ponzu sauce while the Five Spice Tofu crosses both Chinese and Malaysian cuisines for a wonderful vegetarian option.

Our Char Siu Pork Chops are the highlight of this menu. Two 6-ounce bone-in pork chops are marinated and cooked to perfection, served with steamed asparagus and pineapple & bacon fried rice! This takes the best of Cantonese cooking and gives it the modern flair Ling & Louie’s is known for!

We also have hand-crafted cocktails, each named for famous landmarks or places across Hong Kong. These cocktails are the perfect complement to any of the featured dishes in August!

PASSPORT TO… THAILAND

Classic Thai cooking emphasizes lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatics and spice. Each dish is made with an acute attention to detail, balancing contrasting aspects in taste, temperature and texture. Unlike many other regional cuisines throughout Asia, Thai cuisine is about complexity – the juggling of many ingredients and flavors – to create harmonious dishes unlike any in the world.

Our trip to Thailand begins with classic appetizers in the form of Beggar’s Purses – crisp pork dumplings topped with a savory green curry-coconut sauce – and Siamese Spring Rolls – served traditionally with fresh herbs and lettuce leaves for wrapping.

Our entrees are a cross-section of the complex flavors for which Thailand is known. Our Monsoon Chicken & Shrimp takes our signature Peanut-Red Curry Sauce and blends it masterfully with blackened chicken, shrimp, fresh mango and pineapple. We are also bringing back a long-time favorite in our Wango Mango, which stir-fries your choice of protein with fresh mango, spinach and Thai basil in a sweet lemon grass-chili sauce.

To pair with such a unique cuisine, we had to find an equally unique winery. Imagery has been a long-running project from the Benziger family. The wines we are featuring – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – celebrate traditional varietals enhanced with something a little outside of the box.
