The finest Cantonese flavors from Chef Lai Cheuk Kou
Savor extraordinary and authentic Cantonese cuisine straight from the heart of the Red Dragon, as Lung Hin brings in new dishes from Hong Kong native Chef Lai Cheuk Kou.
Chef Lai Cheuk Kou — also fondly known as Chef Terry — has worked exclusively in China and Hong Kong, making Marco Polo Manila the very first location he’s worked outside of China.
Having over 36 years of experience under his belt, Chef Terry has mastered the art and science of cooking the most special Chinese dishes from different well-known restaurants and hotels around China and Hong Kong. Chef Terry specializes in hot and healthy dishes like herbal soups and exotic dishes — flavors everyone can now experience at Marco Polo Manila’s award-winning Cantonese restaurant, Lung Hin.
Chef Terry’s flavourful and aromatic signature dishes include the irresistible Cheese-baked Tiger Prawns, sumptuous Pan-fried Diced Beef Cubes, vegetarian-friendly Steamed Diced Pumpkin, exotic yet welcoming Marinated Cucumber with Wasabi and Vinegar, Jellyfish, and Salt-baked Chicken, and a palate-cleansing treat called Dragon Fruit with Bird Nest.
Despite Chef Terry’s expertise in Chinese cookery, he does not limit his creativity to the confines of the cuisine. Since arriving to the Philippines, he has thought of transforming local produce like sweet Mangoes and fresh Abalone in the Lung Hin kitchen and giving them his very own Cantonese twist. This is definitely something we will look forward to in the near future.
Lung Hin is located at the 44th level of Marco Polo Manila Hotel, Meralco Ave., Ortigas, Pasig City. For more information, visit www.marcopolohotels.com.
