Sip, See and Savour Hidden Gems of Hong Kong
To bring guests inspiring experiences and unusual journeys, Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong hosted an exclusive event featuring a “Cha Chaan Teng” Night with local delicacies, intriguing art pieces and an exhibition of mixed artworks by Mr. San Chiu Yan at ART ONE adjacent to the hotel.
“Cha Chaa Teng” is an essential part of Hong Kong’s dining culture, where you can find delicacies with a mix of “East meets West” style, and the name literally means “tea restaurant” in Cantonese, which is self-explanatory that beverages play a vital cultural role. The hotel presented the iconic Hong Kong Style Milk Tea, with specially crafted cocktails during “Beverage Ritual”, including Iced Preserved Kumquat Seven Up with Gin and Pepsi with Rum, lemon and preserved lemon, two typical Cha Chaan Teng drinks with a twist, as well as Cucumber Bliss, a refreshing cocktail inspired by Hong Kong Five Green Juice with cucumber flavor. Our meticulous chefs indulged guests’ palate with a range of Cha Chaan Teng inspired canapés, included Freshly Toasted Pineapple Bun with Hard Salted Butter, Freshly Toasted Crispy Bun with Sweet Condensed Milk and Chocolate Sauce, Sautéed instant noodle with scallops, barbecue pork and cheese sauce and many more!
Guests also enjoyed acoustic performances, appreciated intriguing art pieces and the newest collection of the local artist Mr. San Chiu Yan. His “ASH” series showcased a range of paintings, photos and videos in expressing the beauty of withered flowers. Mr. San established Art Alley studio in 2014 to promote Hong Kong’s Cultural and Creative Industry. In the past 5 years, he co-operated with various brands like Longchamp, Joyce, Delsey and BeCandle, showcasing his creations at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, K11, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Detour, Innocentre and Designboom in Japan.
