Following an extensive US$4 million refurbishment, Shang Palace at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok opened its doors last month. The new Shang Palace features rich Chinese decor with intimate private rooms and a decentralized kitchen at the heart of the restaurant. Designed by Hospitality & Leisure Asia, a prominent designer in Hong Kong, the dining room now displays lace fretwork screens with images of a gilded Happy Buddha, emblematic of health, happiness, and longevity. Celestial carpets, red Tang dynasty-inspired chairs, and hand-painted silk motifs of exotic florals also deck the space. The restaurant has welcomed a new executive chef, Sham Yun Ming, a Cantonese epicurean with more than 35 years of culinary experience. Chef Sham joins dim sum and barbecue chefs in the novel new kitchen, each with distinct preparation areas and a live seafood kitchen that opens upon the restaurant. The new Shang Palace menu showcases a broad selection of fine Cantonese favorites, many of which showcase ingredients from the regional province where the recipe originates from.
