Roar into the Year of the Tiger with a new vibrant festive menu from PAZTA’s chic location in Tai Kwun.
Tai Kwun‘s popular Italian dining spot, PAZTA, has launched a new special menu to honour the Year of the Tiger. An exciting four-course feast with auspicious dishes bringing good luck, prosperity, and happiness is now available. An Italian take on Chinese traditions and customs, celebrate the new year with “The Tiger Menu.”
The Chinese word for “prawn” resembles laughter, symbolising joy and making it a Chinese New Year menu staple. To honour this tradition, PAZTA has sourced Mediterranean tiger prawns from the Mediterranean sea and created a series of dishes which highlight this sweet and meaty crustacean, prepared and cooked with old classic recipes from the coasts of its origin like Cinqueterre, Cetara, Amalfi, Palermo and Cagliari.
Guests can savour flavours from the sea with the Sautéed Limoncello Tiger Prawns, Giant Pasta Tubes with a Seafood Ragu Medley and Tiger Prawns, and Pan-seared Catch of the Day with Tiger Prawns, Grilled Eggplant Buffalo Mozzarella and Basil Pesto with Confit Tomato Cream.
For meat lovers, PAZTA is serving their best-selling Carpaccio di Manzo al Tartufo Bianco with paper-thin slices of Italian cured beef with pecorino cheese and white truffle, the Pappardelle al Ragu d’Anatra with duck, fresh herbs and lemon zest, and Braised Peppered Tuscan Beef, served seared, diced, and accompanied by fragrant porcini mushrooms and garden fresh greens.
For vegetarians, PAZTA’s menu boasts many mouthwatering dishes from the traditional Parmigiana di Melanzane, layering oven-baked sheets of aubergine between creamy mozzarella, tomato sauce, basil and parmesan and the Tagliatelle al Tartufo Bianco, to using Beyond Meat in their Straccetti All’aceto Impossibili Balsamico e Asparagi, with vegan plant-based meat, green asparagus, and balsamic reduction.
To finish off the feast, PAZTA has crafted a new dessert– La Delizia del Tigre. Made with a homemade lemon and yuzu sponge cake base for a light and refreshing taste, La Delizia is topped with mascarpone cream and flambéed oranges in tiger stripes.
PAZTA’s Tiger Menu is available from January 10th, 2022 throughout February 2022. Savour their special Chinese New Year creations on their intimate patio or chic dining room, and ring in the Year of the Tiger with PAZTA.
