Pudong Shangri-La, East Shanghai is advocating a green healthy lifestyle in Shanghai by launching a Go Healthy lunch at the Grand Tower Lounge in January 2014.
After rounds of big year-end parties and feasts, more and more people will finally realize the need to pursue a healthy and green diet to embrace the New Year. The Go Healthy lunch then emerges. It is made up of a salad, sandwich and soup prepared low in sodium and fat. Guests may choose either a single item or combine two items.
Five different salads are available from purely green salad to mixed heavier meat salad. Each dish offers a combination of healthy ingredients and the flavours created by an international chef team that makes the taste flexible and variant. Highly nutritious ingredients, such as quinoa, fennel, capsicum and avocado are highlighted in each salad to deliver a healthy diet concept.
Another feature of the menu is the three signature soups, White Miso Soup, Black Bone Chicken Soup and Celeriac Veloute which are served with a healthy bread basket containing rye bread roll and a multi grain bread roll stick.
“When the New Year comes, a lot of promises to lose weight, to live healthier are made, but only very few people actually keep those promises. This way, I thought of helping them with a couple of healthy, but nutritious and tasty dishes.” said Executive Chef Ulrich Jablonka, a certificate holder of special dietetic qualification in Germany who came up with the idea to launch the menu.
He added “Especially after the filling and lavish days of the festive season, those dishes shall bring you back to a healthy and balanced, yet filling and good tasting diet.”
Available daily at the Grand Tower Lounge, the Go Healthy lunch is priced at RMB 88 for two items and RMB 48 for a single item. Prices are subject to a 15 per cent service charge. For reservations, please call (86 21) 2828 6888 or email fbreservation.slpu@shangri la.com.
Perched next to the lobby of the Grand Tower, an intimate entrance leads guests into the Grand Tower Lounge, lit with natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. A simple harmony between pastel chinoiserie-chic decorations and contemporary furnishings, the Grand Tower Lounge is a perfect venue for any occasion.
