Celebrate Dragon Boat Festival with New Rice Dumpling Flavours from Lung King Heen at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China

In Hong Kong, no Dragon Boat Festival celebration is complete without rice dumplings. To embrace the culinary tradition, three-Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Lung King Heen at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is celebrating the festival with two rice dumpling gift sets this year that feature not only the perennial favourite but also two new flavours – an effort reflecting the restaurant’s continued dedication to elevating the humble delicacies with the finest ingredients.

Introducing Two New Flavours 

This year, the Hotel’s Executive Chinese Chef Chan Yan Tak and his talented culinary team behind Lung King Heen have developed two new rice dumpling flavours to delight its discerning guests. Inspired by the traditional pelted wheat and peanut sweet soup, the Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Pelted Wheat, Peanuts, Lotus Seed Paste and Osmanthus is a sweet dumpling where the lotus seed paste is deliberately cooked to achieve a molten state. Pelted wheat and peanuts are steamed for two hours before mixing into the glutinous rice to impart a unique mouthfeel. When sampling, guests are invited to take advantage of the osmanthus honey that comes with the dumpling and enjoy an elevated depth of flavour. 

In addition to the sweet dumpling, Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Conch, Conpoy and Spicy Termite Mushroom is another new creation that is savoury in taste. In this recipe, premium ingredient conch is steamed and diced into fine cubes to add texture to the glutinous rice. Aromatic termite mushroom lends a spicy kick to the dumpling and offers a delightful fragrance with every bite. 

Guests can sample the two new rice dumpling creations, each weighing approximately 225 grams, by ordering the gift set that is priced at HKD 438 that also comes with an offering of snowflake honey orchid phoenix tea leaves.

The Perennial Favourite Returns 

Widely loved by Lung King Heen’s patrons in previous years, Organic Glutinous Grain Rice Dumpling with Abalone and Conpoy will return this year due to popular demand. This luxury dumpling is prepared with two pieces of South African abalone and roast goose, in addition to the staple of pork, Chinese mushroom and salted egg yolk to promise an abundance of Cantonese delight. Organic ten grain rice is used to add more fibre and nourishment to this treat. This mega-sized dumpling is good to share for up to four people.

Guests can sample this rice dumpling that weighs approximately 750 grams by ordering the gift set that is priced at HKD 498 which also includes an offering of snowflake honey orchid phoenix tea leaves.

All rice dumplings from Lung King Heen are boiled for at least four hours and simmered in hot water for 10 hours to achieve that sticky and chewy texture from mung beans and glutinous rice.
