Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong’s all-day dining restaurant, The Place, has made a comeback after a two-month makeover in the heart of Kowloon.
With a fresh new look in tones of light oak, herringbone patterns and pops of lime and white, the 8600sqf restaurant has turned into an airy dining space offering foodies a variety of popular buffets, its classic all-day à la carte menu, a new wellness afternoon tea, plus grab-and-go choices.
Lattice screens separate The Place from the lobby where shiny buckets of seafood sit atop fresh ice along its three-metre Seafood Bar, spotlighted by drop-down pendant lights. Knotted white ropes line the bar to bring out a fishermens catch of the day appeal, and tastes of the sea offer freshly shucked seasonal oyster varieties, Boston lobster, whelks, mussels, crayfish, prawns and Canadian crab.
At the live stations, The Place’s chefs serve up foie gras à la minute, paella, Bouillabaisse, Raclette and lobster, with Staub cast-iron pots in vibrant shades of red, mustard and green inviting guests back for seconds.
At the Japanese station, Temaki sushi, hand roll cones and fresh sashimi are a must, and the new hammer coppered Tandoor combines Indian culinary theatre with aromatic breads, tandoori and skewered kebabs.
For a sweet finish, The Place’s dessert station, now double in size, is the first in Hong Kong to offer a Chocolate Series of Valrhona’s Single-Origin Chocolate that uses cocoa beans from a single source or plantation from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Grenada, Madagascar and Venezuela.
Other desserts include baked Alaska, éclairs, fresh churros, as well as the freshly crèpes, lava cake and soufflés.
For afternoon tea goers, The Place’s new wellness afternoon tea will be served on weekdays including freshly-squeezed juices, organic teas and sandwiches for the health-conscious guests. Over the weekend, the afternoon tea buffet makes its comeback for a relaxing way to spend the day.
Styled by the award-winning team at Stickman Design of Dubai and Hong Kong, The Place, mixed together with warm white stone, a striped timber effect floor, and a splash of fresh meadow green in the furniture, brings a fresh, modern feel to the lively Mongkok neighbourhood.
The Place is located at Lobby Level, Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong.
