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!

  1. A very disappointed that these great summer menus are only available to summer residents. Please repeat these for those of us who frequent your restaurant but only spend 8 – 9 months in AZ. aAs

    1. Hi, Not to worry these Passport menus will continue after the summer with the exception of Fridays and Saturdays.
