Recently, the Pearl Liang Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Taipei's Grand Hyatt Hotel updated their menu and hired a new Chinese snack chef, Ken Yeh, to design some new dim sum delicacies and desserts. The presentation of these new items have really impressed even the most discerning of diners and focused more attention on the restaurant.
Though he is only 30 years old, Chef Yeh has worked in the culinary industry for about 15 years. Every morning, he starts his day around 7:30 a.m., when he and the cooking team prepare fresh ingredients and stuffing for their dim sum items, which are sold on the same day and never-kept over night. His high standards, from choosing the ingredients to cooking the dough, ensure that his creations always look delicate and taste delicious.
Pearl Liang's executive chef, Peter Chan, learned his culinary skills from an uncle in Hong Kong; their experiences cooking together planted the seed for Chan's cooking career that has spanned two decades. Believing that fine food must look, smell and taste good, Chan puts a lot of effort into giving people not only nourishment but also a bit of culture and a nice experience. His creatively prepared seafood dishes presented on the new menu are sure to be a hit.
Apart from many exquisite a la carte choices on their new menu, you can also try their set meal deals, ranging in price between NT$1,500 and NT$3,000.
