Perfectly situated in the core of the hustling and bustling Shanghai city, Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre holds a superb five stars when it comes to location, service, facilities and comfort. However, if one is not staying in the hotel as a guest, they should still definitely find time to dine in it’s Man Ho Chinese restaurant, a beautiful Chinese restaurant serving authentic Shanghainese cuisine.

EZ had a rare opportunity to chat with Executive Chef, Steven Yang, who specializes in Chinese cuisine. From the conversation, it is obvious that Steven is not only talented but passionate about his cooking especially when he described the restaurant’s three signature Shanghai dishes with pride.

First to be presented was the ever popular Shanghai drunken pigeon. This ‘Preserved Pigeon with Huadiao Wine’ dish is marinated with high quality rice wine above ten years of age together with specially selected herbs and spices for at least three days before carefully sliced and decorated into the shape of a flying pigeon. Customers are guaranteed to fall in love with the flavorful and tastiness of this exquisite dish with one bite.

想在高尚豪华且舒适的餐厅里,品尝优质的上海菜色,位于市中心的上海雅居乐万豪酒店里的万豪中餐厅是绝佳的选择。Steven Yang 杨之蔚是个对食材用料十分用心的主厨。万豪中餐厅三道最特色的上海菜式为:花雕醉乳鸽 (preserved pigeon with huadiao wine)、香槽蛋白虎虾球 (fragrant grained tiger prawn with egg white)、大闸蟹粉葱油拌面 (onion oil noodles with hairy crab meat)。

花雕醉乳鸽 这一道美食呈现美观。乳鸽均衡切片陈列成孔雀形。嫩肉里的浓郁酒香是用上了十年以上的陈年花雕酒,加入各种香料、冰糖、话梅,把乳鸽浸泡上了三天以上才入味的。

The next dish incorporates sea catched big tiger prawns imported from other countries. On the menu, the dish is known as the Fragrant Grained Tiger Prawn with Egg White. Customers have praised this dish’s unique presentation because it looks like an art piece. The fresh tiger prawns are precisely cut into the shape of butterflies and served with a special sauce that has a touch of egg white. A first class dish indeed.

Nothing concludes a good night out in Shanghai than settling with a nice bowl of noodles. The last dish might look rather plain and simple, but do not let that fool you for the taste says otherwise. Served was a white bowl of noodles topped with some greens and the other was a black bowl of reddish sauce with green peas. A classic case of ‘appearance can be deceptive’, this Onion Oil Noodle with Hairy Crab Meat is not only complicated to prepare but it is also a seasonal menu item which is only available during the hairy crab season. The secret recipe sauce is made up of a perfect balance of hairy crab meat from a male crab and a female crab. Noodles are hand-pulled to perfection and when these two components are delicately combined, it takes on a heavenly taste which no other dish can duplicate.

Raymond Choon

Creative Director & Owner/ Founder of Hairco

Setting trends and influencing style are the reasons Raymond Choon is currently one of Malaysia’s top hairstylists. Raymond only came in contact with hairdressing or hairstyling when he first stepped into London, a place commonly known as the hair heaven of the world. It was the place where Raymond experienced an epiphany of capturing the essence of hair and fashion in all moods and possibilities. Young and innovative, he explored uncharted beauty and unconventional experiments with the challenge of narrowing the gap between brands, products, people and expectations. Before returning to Malaysia, Raymond made another stop at Shanghai where he believed the importance of understanding what was desired is not only in the west but also in the east.

Today, Raymond is a successful hairstylist who owns a boutique hair salon at the Gardens Mall. Hair Corner offers customers a contemporary environment where celebrety treatment is the core of its hairstyling services.

身为马来西亚顶级发型设计师的Raymond Choon,凭借多年来不停地创造风格,引领风尚而在本地发型界享有崇高地位。Raymond与发型设计的初次邂逅地点,正是在国际发型界的中心舞台 – 伦敦,他在伦敦这段日子汲取了许多与发型和服装相关的专业知识,同时培养出广阔的眼光和视野。才华横溢而又勇于创新的他,屡屡挑战高难度,致力将品牌,产品,人们以及期望的隔阂予以消融。在返回马来西亚之前,Raymond曾经在上海停留了一段时间观察学习,因为对他而言同时掌握东、西方精髓知识才真正称得上透彻了解。

今天,Raymond已经在吉隆坡Gardens Mall拥有个人发廊 – Hair Corner。发廊内部设计洋溢着浓郁的当代经典氛围,为每一位踏入发廊的顾客提供如同名人般的顶级发型设计服务。
