Paying homage to Hong Kong’s history as a fishing village, Executive Chef Mango Tsang Chiu Lit introduces seafood from local villages to Michelin-starred Ming Court at Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong, creating 12 new seasonal seafood dishes for his clientele.
One of his new signatures includes Sautéed Dried Mantis Shrimp with Shredded Barbecued Pork, using dried Mantis Shrimp sourced from Lamma Island.
Indigenous to Lamma, the village’s seaweed is prominently featured in the restaurant’s Chinese soup named Sok Kwu Wan Seaweed and Assorted Seafood Soup using seaweed collected by fishermen in May each year. The freshness of seaweed enhances the flavour of the dish, making it a humble, must-try soup to taste. Steamed Local Red Crab with Seaweed and Champagne, creatively pair the flavour of Champagne with fresh local crab and seaweed, reflecting the chef’s mastery of ingredients and seasoning.

Presenting traditional authentic tastes of the sea, Steamed Spanish Iberico Pork Loin with Ma Wan’s Dried Shrimp Paste uses shrimp paste made by an elderly local couple living on Ma Wan Island, fermented using traditional local methods. Ground shrimp is mixed with salt and then sun-dried into tasty solid shrimp paste. Once cooked, the paste mellows into a wholesome background taste, enhancing the flavor of the steamed Spanish Iberico pork loin. The same paste is also used in Ma Wan’s Dried Shrimp Paste, Chinese Lettuce, Clay Pot and Dried Shrimp Paste, Crabmeat, Ginger, Fried Rice.
