Thai culture is often blended indistinctively together with Chinese culture in the widely diverse Kingdom of Thailand, and every first day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar the country is proud to celebrate Chinese New Year. At Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Yuan, the Chinese restaurant, is busy preparing a range of tastes from the mystic Orient to mark this auspicious event starting 30th January 2014 to 2nd February 2014.
As you enter Yuan restaurant, your spirits will be raised by the distinct sounds of the Guzheng, a breathtaking Chinese instrument. On 31st January, a troupe of dancers will be performing the traditional Lion Dance, offering a visual spectacle of dazzling colors and gravity-defying leaps.
Although the celebrations will be hotel-wide, it is at Yuan that the heart of China will beat most fiercely. Hong Kong Chef Cheung Chin Choi has created a range of menus to allow guests to savor the very best of Cantonese cuisine. Set menus (from THB 18,000 nett to THB 68,000 nett for a table of 10 persons) and á la carte will be available both for lunch and dinner, with exotic dishes such as Golden Fried Lobster Croquettes Coated in Coconut, Abalone and King Crab and Wok-Fried Maine Lobster and many more. Desserts include Superior Bird’s Nest in Almond Milk amongst many others. Alternatively, our ever-popular á la carte Dim Sum is not-to-be missed.
Raise a glass to the Lunar New Year with our unlimited beverage package for only THB 999 nett per person. Of course, Chinese New Year would not be complete without a sip of the finest tea, served to you by the hotel’s tea master from a golden teapot with a meter-long spout, giving a special performance and finishing touch to the hotel’s unforgettable New Year’s celebrations.
“This year,” says Marco Osterwalder, Director of Food and Beverage, “our Hong Kong Chef
and his team will be preparing all the special dishes to be served on Chinese New Year’s Day, its name is literally translated as ‘toss of luck’, and a play on the Chinese words gives a
second meaning of ‘abundance of wealth and long life’.” Every guest will get to take home a complimentary ang pao, and can try their luck with a fortune cookie and the chance to win amazing prizes from the luxurious Millennium Hilton Bangkok. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
