Mention shark's fin and many people
will think of an exclusive, high-end dining experience.
These days, however, top-grade cuisine is no longer
the exclusive domain of the older set, as younger patrons,
particularly from the high-tech field, have become shark's
fin connoisseurs. Ji Pin Restaurant, opening on Dec.
19, came into existence after owners bought the famous
Sun Tung Lok Shark Fin Restaurant, re-hired the entire
crew and spent millions on renovating with a modern
New York-style decor. There are plenty of VIP rooms
available for family and business gatherings and the
decor is appropriately classy and elegant. The menu
also is targeted at a younger market in variety and
style. Apart from fresh, top-grade shark's fin and abalone,
Ji Pin also offers fresh seafood, delicately-prepared
Hong Kong-style dim sum and Jiang Nan-style cuisine.
Their Mushroom and Scallops Dumplings are exclusive
to the restaurant, and the Ji Pin Liu Sha Buns are very
tasty. Also not to be missed is the Fragrant Mutton
Shoulder, specially prepared with garlic. Thanks to
fresh ingredients and excellent culinary skills, Ji
Pin ensures that customers only get the best of the
best. Take-out services are also available.
