SLTN_2015_RD

Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan’s new delicate rice dumplings include Sliced Pork Belly and Preserved Vegetable Rice Dumpling, Cantonese Abalone and Liver Sausage Rice Dumpling and a limited offer of Braised US Beef Rice Dumpling.  Two alternatives – Vegetarian Mushroom and Chinese Toona Rice Dumpling and Red Beans and Lotus Seeds Sweet Rice Dumpling – are also available for vegetarians and sweets lovers, respectively.

Ken Hsu, chef of the hotel’s Chinese restaurant Shanghai Pavilion, said American beef is used in the Braised US Beef Rice Dumpling to make this traditional Chinese rice delicacy even more tender and juicy.  This year, the hotel offers only 300 beef rice dumplings at NT$300 each.

The idea of Chef Hsu’s second rice dumpling comes from Shanghai Pavilion’s signature dish – Sliced Pork Belly and Preserved Vegetable Rice Dumpling – to make this innovative rice delicacy melt in the mouth.  Chef Hsu’s third special rice dumpling of abalone goes well with the sophisticated flavor of liver sausage.

The high-fiber Vegetarian Mushroom and Chinese Toona Rice Dumpling is filled with four kinds of mushrooms with the distinguishable herb fragrance of Chinese toona.  The herb is a popular seasoning ingredient among Chinese vegetarians.


The hotel presents three rice dumpling hampers as ideal gifts: Deluxe Rice Dumpling Hamper, Supreme Rice Dumpling Hamper and Vegetarian Rice Dumpling Hamper.

The Deluxe Rice Dumpling Hamper has one Sliced Pork Belly and Preserved Vegetable Rice Dumpling, one Cantonese Abalone and Liver Sausage Rice Dumpling, one Vegetarian Mushroom and Chinese Toona Rice Dumpling and two Red Beans and Lotus Seeds Sweet Rice Dumplings for NT$799.

The Supreme Rice Dumpling Hamper includes each of the four flavors, plus a bottle of special XO sauce for NT$999.The Vegetarian Rice Dumpling Hamper (three Vegetarian Mushroom and Chinese Toona Rice Dumplings and two Red Beans and Lotus Seeds Sweet Rice Dumplings) costs NT$799.

Apart from holding sumptuous food inside, the trendy and environmentally friendly hampers retain heat well and are designed for reuse, said Erich Kaiserseder, general manager of Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan.

Kaiserseder added that the hotel will continue its charity offer of presenting one classic rice dumpling hamper to the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families in Tainan whenever customers order a classic rice dumpling hamper as a festival gift to the foundation.  The hotel has been supporting the foundation all these years.

The festival hampers and limited offer of beef rice dumplings are available today until June 20, 2015.  Reservations must be made three days prior to collection.  Please note that the charity offer to the Children and Families foundation will not enjoy the 15 percent discount.  Call (886 6) 702 8854 for reservations and further inquiries.
