Hong Kong, 20 December 2017 – With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, the festivities are in full swing at Cafe Roma – Ma Wan’ s all-time favourite beachside restaurant. An array of fun, seasonal dining offers, ranging from traditional Christmas delicacies to Mediterranean New Year sensations, provide perfect occasions to celebrate with loved ones over superb meals and wines while enjoying the charming scenery of Tsing Ma Bridge and Ma Wan Tung Wan Beach.
Celebrating Christmas with Beloved Traditional Flavours
Filling the holidays with Yuletide spirit, Group Executive Chef Jaakko Sorsa has crafted a traditional menu showcasing beloved Christmas flavours. The memorable meal begins with Roasted Chestnut Soup laced with white truffle oil, followed by a tender and succulent Smoked Turkey Breast served with avocado, cherry tomatoes, butter pea sprouts and pumpkin seeds. A cranberry vinaigrette dressing beautifully balances this colourful Christmas starter.
Guests are offered three choices for their main course. The deliciously aromatic and healthy Grilled Salmon Fillet is marinated with fennel seed, salt and other seasonings before being lightly grilled and served with cubed pumpkin risotto, fried kale and a creamy spinach sauce. A hearty Grilled US Black Angus Rib-Eye Steak is paired with rosemary potatoes, red cabbage, Brussels sprouts and a rich Cognac sauce. Vegetarians will love the Grilled Artichoke Penne Pasta topped with a festive roasted bell pepper sauce. A silky Chocolate Mousse Cake completes this special meal on an indulgently sweet note. The four course Christmas dinner will be served on 24 and 25 December and is priced at HK$388 per person with 10% service charge.
Ushering in the New Year with Mediterranean Sensations
Executive Chef Jaakko has created a special Mediterranean New Year’s Eve menu to usher in 2018 most deliciously. The set dinner begins with Lobster & Seafood Chowder and toast with spicy tomato mayonnaise, a classic French seafood soup from Nice with a refreshing taste of the sea. This is followed by an appetiser of Smoked Italian Beef Carpaccio, delicately smoked in-house at Cafe Roma and accompanied by shavings of Parmesan cheese, rocket, aged balsamico, and elaborately ornamented by Chef Jaakko using glittering olive oil pearls. This dish never fails to impress!
Guests are spoilt for choice with a selection of three main courses. Those who prefer a lighter taste can savour the Pan-Fried Sea Bass Fillet with crabmeat risotto, asparagus and roasted crab sauce, while meat lovers will adore the US Black Angus Sirloin Roast which is slow-stewed at 63°C to lock in its juices and then baked to bring out the aromatic flavour and perfect crust. It is served with white carrots, yellow beetroot, French beans, roasted cherry tomatoes and three peppercorn sauce. A mouth-watering vegetarian option is the Truffle & Camembert Risotto. The decadence of fragrant truffle and creamy Camembert cheese is balanced with fresh green asparagus and cherry tomatoes for a melt-in-the-mouth experience. A festive Opera Cake for dessert represents a perfect conclusion to 2017 and an elegant start to 2018. The four-course New Year’s Eve dinner is served exclusively on 31 December and priced at HK$388 per person with 10% service charge.
