Shanghai Sheraton Hongkou Takes The Heat Out Of Summer With New Vegetarian Menu

August 4, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

This summer, Sheraton Shanghai Hongkou Hotel’s signature Cantonese and Shanghai restaurant Yue is helping its guests be as healthy as possible with a newly crafted a la carte seasonal menu entirely composed of Vegetarian dishes.

Situated just minutes from both Shanghai’s historical Bund and also its Lujiazui Financial District in Pudong, the hotel has teamed up with famed Buddhist Master Xing Yun to help boost healthier living this summer.

Yue’s Executive Chef Andy Deng has worked with 86-year-old Buddhist Master Xing Yun, the founder of the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Order, to create and launch the new locally-sourced vegetarian menu now available for lunch and dinner. Throughout the menu, no MSG, garlic or additives are used – bringing out the full flavor of the individual fresh vegetables.

With a focus on using the natural nutrition of a whole host of vegetables to improve health and boost internal happiness, Master Xing Yun has shared some of his favorite healthy recipes from down the years with Chef Andy Deng. These include a Rich Soup with a variety of locally-farmed mushrooms such as the spicy-scented Matsutake, Morsel and white Enoki mushrooms along with savory Kelp, sweet chunks of Pumpkin and fresh Taro root (RMB 58). Another dish inspired by one of Master Xing Yun’s recipes is the Crispy-fried Lotus Root filled with meaty King Oyster Mushrooms (RMB78).

The hearty Fig and Sea Coconut Soup with slices of almonds (RMB 38) is one of the highlights of the menu – ideal for eating in the summer months for good digestion. Known for its abilities to improve longevity, the “Classic” Seaweed Roll filled with Chinese yams, seaweed, chili picked from nearby Hangzhou and fresh basil (RMB 68) is set to be one of the menu’s favorites.

The signature Yue restaurant is situated on the fourth floor of the hotel with a contemporary Chinese feel to the main dining room and numerous private spaces.

The new Vegetarian menu is available for lunch and dinner until the end of September at which point the summer fresh ingredients will be replaced with seasonal Autumn dishes.

Yue offers Lunch every day from 11:30AM-2:00PM and Dinner from 5:30PM- 10:00PM
