Shanghai, 27th September 2013 - Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai proudly presents its specially created menus celebrating the hairy crab season this autumn until 30th November 2013, exclusively available at the hotel’s Suntime Century Chinese restaurant. Freshly caught from Yangcheng Lake, located three kilometres northeast of Suzhou in Jiangsu Province, the hairy crabs inhabiting the freshwater lake are known for their quality, with the right maturity and exquisite taste as the season’s most sought after delicacy.
In order to ensure the most authentic experience for guests, Chef San Zheng, Senior Chinese Chef at Suntime Century Chinese Restaurant personally selects hairy crabs directly through closely forged relationships with local fishermen. His expertise in the preparation of hairy crab has been developed over years in the industry to develop an imaginative menu combined with reputation for culinary excellence.
Chef San Zheng has created two menus to best complement the crabs which focus on quality and taste. Guests can choose from the signature steamed option or other inspired dishes including Yellow Croaker Roll with Crab Meat & Roe and Pork & Crab Meat Ball with Surf Clam.
The original and localised flavour of the crabs is well accented in the menus, as Mattias Roock, Executive Chef at Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai shares, “Authentic taste and quality of the hairy crabs are paramount and reflective in the cooking methods and menu presentation to our guests”.
