Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel is bringing the best of China to Oman to mark Chinese New Year with an elegant menu available at its signature restaurant, China Mood, from Thursday January 30 until Saturday February 1. This year, the Chinese Calendar is celebrating the first point in the Zodiac calendar, the Year of the Rat which symbolizes wealth and new beginnings.
Throughout the year, Chef Sam, Chef de Cuisine at China Mood, and his team take guests on a guided tour of China from its salty Northern coast to its sour Southern provinces in celebration of the New Year. With the use of authentic ingredients, his traditional five-course feast features dishes from across the country; each especially selected to honour the diversity of Chinese culture. The set menu features Lobster Dumplings and Beef Xiaolong Bao, Duck Wanton Soup, Truffle scented Szechuan style Sea Bass, Wok fried Wagyu beef and Lotus leaves stuffed with Chicken and Scallop fried rice. Ending it with a sweet choice of Star Anise spiced Orange Chocolate mousse and Five-Spice Chocolate Orange Peanut sponge.
Diners will have the choice to sit under giant red lanterns hanging from the ceiling indoors and outdoor patio area as they enjoy different Chinese flavors. Topping off the evening, visitors will be given a front row seat to watch a mesmerizing theatrical performance by the tea sommelier who pours cup after cup of fragrant green oolong tea from a golden kettle with a meter-long sword-like spout without spilling a drop.
The special New Year set menu is priced at OMR38 plus taxes per person. For more information or to make a reservation, please visit ritzcarlton.com/albustanpalace, call +968 2476 4444 or email Restaurant.firstname.lastname@example.org.
