(HONG KONG) Dragonair today announced a new menu for flights out of Hong Kong featuring dishes inspired by Man Ho, the premium Chinese restaurant of the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong.
From mid-April, Dragonair passengers on flights from Hong Kong to Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Kaohsiung can enjoy dishes from a specially designed inflight menu created by Man Ho. Dragonair has also for the first time introduced its partnership menu on other routes including Nanjing, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Chengdu, Kunming, Qingdao and Fukuoka. The new menu (see Appendix) will be served to passengers until mid-April 2013.
Dragonair General Manager Inflight Services Cecilia Leung said: “Passengers like to see a variety of food options when they fly and enjoy sampling exciting new dishes from time to time. The demand for Chinese meals and high-quality airline food is on the rise and our catering team has put a lot of effort into creating new surprises to meet our passengers’ needs.
“Dragonair is delighted to once again join hands with the world-renowned JW Marriott Hong Kong for our latest inflight menu. This time we are pleased that travellers to other cities in our network in addition to Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Kaohsiung will be able to enjoy the fabulous creations from the Man Ho team.”
Man Ho is the award-winning Chinese restaurant at the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, offering authentic Cantonese served in a contemporary style. Its kitchen is helmed by Executive Chinese Chef Ip Kwok Fai, who began his culinary career 33 years ago and his team was awarded a gold and silver medal at the Hong Kong International Culinary Classic competition 2011.
Chef Ip has designed the menus taking into account the unique considerations of inflight catering. To cater for the preferences of passengers from some destinations in Mainland China, a number of dishes have been given extra spice by using chilli as an ingredient.
“It is indeed a great honour for JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong to continue its long-term partnership with Dragonair and to have the opportunity once again to extend a selection of exclusive dishes by Man Ho onboard Dragonair inflight menu. It has certainly been a rewarding experience for me personally to be part of this exciting collaboration and to be able to showcase Man Ho’s culinary creativity in the air. It has also been such a great pleasure working with the talented team of chefs from Dragonair; from the menu design, food tastings to the implementation of the final dishes, which I hope the passengers will enjoy,” Chef Ip said.
