Kowloon Shangri-La – The All About Matcha Series

Commencing today until June, Kowloon Shangri-La will offer a series of green gourmets featuring Kyoto Uji Matcha at their main outlets, Shang Palace, Nadaman, Cafe Kool, Lobby Lounge and Deli Kool. We are delighted to be the first to savour this array of creations made with matcha powder from Yamamasa Koyamaen, an award-winning tea farm, which includes matcha-infused Chinese dishes, desserts, pastries and afternoon tea treats.

Starting with an appetizer platter, it has uniquely rich stir-fried river shrimps with matcha from Shang Palace, sea urchin matcha tofu and my favourite tantalizing yuba tofu with snow crab meat from Nadaman.

Grilled Japanese Isaki Fish is beautifully cut, boneless and buttery, which comes with a piece of sweet potato and sprinkled with matcha powder, whereas the sliced crispy chicken on matcha toast is surprisingly tender, which drew a round of applause from the guests, serve aside some more shredded chicken richly flavored with sesame oil.

Last but not the least, we sample a variety of fine matcha pastries including matcha cheese cake, puff, jelly and scones which are available at the buffet restaurant Cafe Kool and afternoon tea set from Lobby Lounge; and bringing home our DIY matcha green tea swiss roll with the help from executive pastry chef Thomas Broger (priced at HK$300 each) .

After all, it was such a wonderful and memorable night!
