Master Chef Steven Ng grew up in Hong Kong in the 1970s with his family in the suburbs of Hong Kong. As their home was far away from the city, going for meals in restaurants was a rare treat. Therefore home-made meals cooked by his mother and father largely helped to shape his cooking style today. Although he is constantly putting his own signature twists on traditional Cantonese cooking through his interpretations, he still employs many of the fundamental techniques he learnt from his father, who also went on to become a professional chef.
From the moment you enter Shang Palace, you will be greeted by red accents like the red chandeliers, and the red lights illuminating from the wine cellar. Six private rooms aptly named after the different kinds of Chinese tea allow for a lovely intimate meal with family, friends or even an all-important business luncheon. You can even work with the chef to create your very own special menu of his signature dishes. All in all, the culinary expertise of Chef Steven Ng results in a truly memorable meal. (May 2012)
