Hot and humid are the synonyms for summer in Hong Kong. According to the phenomenon of traditional Chinese medicine, summer dampness is the major cause for loss of appetite; while the best way to soothe the digestive problem is to go for the seasonal food that are specifically meant for summer. Throughout the months of May and June, The Window Café is going to treat you with Lychee & Osmanthus Tea Buffet. Whet your appetite with an array of mouth-watering dishes crafted by just-ripened lychee and aromatic osmanthus this summer!
Lychee, a tropical fruit that harvested in summer, possesses a sugary taste and flowery fragrance. The crystal-like flesh is extremely pulpy and juicy in which many people see the fruit as an unrivalled delicacy since the ancient time. Due to lychee’s heat nature that might cause discomfort to throat, the gentle osmanthus is thus being used to harmonize and add a bouquet to the dishes.
Celebrate the arrival of summer with Stir-fried Kurobuta Pork with Lychee, Osmanthus in Sweet and Sour Sauce. Mauritius, a lychee species that offers a note of osmanthus, is being shortlisted and used in the dish. Kurobuta pork on the other hand, possesses a low fat marbling and is much healthier than the ordinary meat. By stir-frying the whole grains of lychee with Kurobuta pork, the sweetness and savory fuses, while the sprinkles of osmanthus make the dish more irresistible with the captivating aroma. Char-grilled Salmon with Osmanthus, Lychee and Honey Citron shows you how the ingredients complement with each other.
