Tucked inside the Langham Hotel Hong Kong, T’ang Court is a three Michelin-starred dining experience that beckons for you to come, sit down, relax and allow the masterful kitchen take over. That’s not an easy task for some, as it represents loss of control, but they are experts here. So, in the spirit and name of good food, why not?
The decor is luxury, that’s for sure. It’s formal, traditional and European in style. But, of course, you’re in Hong Kong, so Asia does permeate. I came here as a guest, excited to have a meal at the place I had heard about from so many.
A set menu was offered that evening, and I asked to receive a smattering of the restaurants most popular dishes. Wow! I was truly blown away.
I tried the chilled South African abalone with jellyfish, stewed imperial bird’s nest with minced chicken soup, baked oyster with port wine, roasted suckling pig, drunken prawns, baked stuffed crab and crispy salted chicken. Each dish was, seriously, unbelievable – with flavor so intense that it took a moment or two to process each bite.
For dessert, small egg custard tarts finished the evening perfectly. I indulged in a small pot on Chinese Oolong tea after dinner, and watched as other diners’ faces lit up when the delicious cuisine was brought to their table. What more could I ask for? I can’t wait to dine here again.
