To celebrate the opening of its sister property The Peninsula Shanghai in mid-October 2009, The Peninsula Bangkok is delighted to present a Shanghainese Culinary Adventure at Mei Jiang from 17 October to 1 November 2009.
The Peninsula Shanghai is the ninth property in The Peninsula Hotels’ portfolio and fronts the historic Bund, with spectacular views of the Huangpu River, Pudong and the gardens of the former British Consulate, and blends with the historic architecture of its landmark neighbors along the Bund – a UNESCO-designated Modern Heritage Site.
The opening of The Peninsula Shanghai heralds the return of parent company The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited to its roots, as it owned and operated four of Shanghai’s most celebrated hotels – The Kalee, Majestic, Palace and Astor House Hotels – in the first half of the last century. With a distinguished heritage as Asia’s oldest hotel company, The Peninsula Hotels is proud that its newest hotel returns to Shanghai, one of the world’s most exciting cities.
To commemorate the opening of the hotel, Mei Jiang offers a carefully selected à la carte menu including Steamed Hairy Crab Accompanied with Ginger Tea, Steamed Conpoy with Pork Xi Lun Bao, Wok-fried Sliced Pork Belly with Bamboo Shoots and Capsicums in Soybean Chilli Paste and Deep-fried Egg White Braised with Conpoy and more.
A four-course set menu at Baht 1,600 is also available and includes Deep-Fried River Carp Fish Topped with Sweet and Sour Pinenut Sauce, Fried Shanghai Pudding with Shredded Pork and Preserved Vegetables and Sweetened Sesame Dumplings and Red Dates in Osmanthus Blossom Tea.
In addition, during this promotion every diner who orders a hairy crab dish or set menu from the Shanghainese selection will be entitled to participate in a lucky draw with a grand prize of an ideal vacation package including round-trip tickets for two to Shanghai on Cathay Pacific Airways and a three-night stay in a Deluxe Room at the newly opened Peninsula Shanghai. This prize is valid for six months from 1 November 2009 to 1 May 2010.
The Shanghainese Culinary Adventure is available for lunch and dinner, and prices are subject to 10% service charge and 7% government tax.
