Two-Michelin star Ming Court Launches New Wellness Menu


24 September 2013


Elevating culinary experiences for the health-conscious diner, the city’s adored two-Michelin star Cantonese restaurant, Ming Court, at Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong, has teamed up with Dr Gladys Leung, Langham Hospitality Group’s global Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) consultant for Chuan Spa, to launch a new Wellness Menu, featuring nourishing and healthy delicacies using premium Chinese herbs and fine ingredients.


Staying true to Chuan Spa’s ‘Wu Xing’ (Five Elements) and TCM-focused philosophy that each element represents a part of the body, Ming Court’s Wellness Menu and wellness soups use ingredients beneficial to a particular part of the body in order to restore elemental harmony and enhance the performance of that organ.  Ming Court’s Executive Chef, Mango Tsang Chiu Lit has collaborated  with Dr Leung to create a series of beneficial line-up of dishes including Eel, Chinese Angelica, Grilled, enhancing the flow of Qi and blood circulation, and Scallop, Black Truffle, Shingled Hedgehog Mushroom, Egg White, Stir-Fried, helping to combat ageing and strengthen the immune system.  Also from the menu is Whole Superior Pigeon, Wolfberry, Lily Bulb, made to improve vision and nourish the liver and kidney.


Chef Mango says, “I am delighted to join forces with Dr Gladys Leung and present our new Wellness Menu. Over the years, Ming Court has created innovative and unparalleled dishes for guests. We hope this partnership brings a unique Michelin dining experience to our regular and new patrons. Traditionally, ‘Wu Xing’ has been one of the most important pillars of the concept of TCM. Each of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) affects different parts of our body. By incorporating the concept of ‘Wu Xing’ to Cantonese cuisine, guests will be taken on an exclusive and nutritious gourmet journey”.


“As the Group’s worldwide TCM consultant, I have been working closely with Langham Hospitality Group’s Chuan Spas around the world, aiming to promote and introduce the essence of TCM internationally”, says Dr Gladys Leung. “By marrying the concept of TCM and Michelin fine dining, my alliance with Ming Court and Chef Mango will ensure guests further comprehend the benefits of TCM concepts in our daily lives.”


Over the years, Chuan Spa has been dedicated to offer holistic TCM-inspired spa experiences to guests. In launching the Wellness Menu, Ming Court is offering guests of the first 15 tables to order from the Wellness Menu, a complimentary 30-minute Chuan Heavenly Jing Luo Foot Treatment, designed by Dr Gladys Leung.
