Abu Dhabi, 12 July 2017 – Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri Abu Dhabi has launched a special lunch offer at Sofra bld, the five-star hotel’s award-winning all-day dining restaurant.

For a taste of authentic Vietnamese cuisine, Master Chef Vu Dang brings his signature recipes from the Hoi An menu, including favourites like crunchy green papaya salad with prawns, rice paper vegetable spring rolls, and grilled lemongrass chicken.

Chef He Jia, who hails from Nanjing, leads the kitchen at Shang Palace with a focus on the Huaiyang tradition of Chinese cuisine. From this station, guests can enjoy steamed crystal vegetable Dim sum, scallop siew mai, Hong Kong soya chicken, and hand-pulled noodles served in superior broth.

From the award-winning French restaurant Bord Eau, Chef Jimmy De Almeida brings classics such as slow-roasted salmon, duck à l'orange, and the pan-seared beef tenderloin with Morel mushrooms.

Summer Lunch Buffet at Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri Abu Dhabi Chef Muhamad Jejen, Executive Pastry Chef at Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri, takes over the sweets on behalf of the Lobby Lounge.
