We say that a better question to ask might be what can’t you order from the expansive room service menu at The Peninsula Hong Kong in Kowloon. This Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hong Kong hotel offers a diverse selection of Eastern and Western cuisine on its in-room dining menu, which is conveniently available on the electronic tablets found in your guest room or suite that control just about everything in the room.
You’ll have more options to choose from than at most restaurants, but gourmet Western-style highlights include lobster bisque soup, grilled bone-in ham and Gruyère sandwich, lamb burger with feta, tuna steak and beef consommé, while Eastern cuisine includes pan-fried prawns, herb-roasted Kurobuta pork loin, dim sum, sashimi and madras curry with prawns or chicken. The room service dessert options at this luxury Hong Kong hotel are just as extensive — choose from brownie bars, crispy pistachio puffs, crème brûlée, pineapple carpaccio and more.
The room service menu at The Peninsula Hong Kong is available 24 hours a day and spans several pages, featuring complete menus of Western, Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine. The menus at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel are available both in print and on the wireless tablets in every guest room (in five different languages no less). Choices range from burgers to pad Thai, rack of lamb to dim sum, French toast to traditional Japanese breakfast. Whatever you order, it is served promptly and formally, with silver tea and coffee pots, fine crystal glasses, large ice buckets for wine or champagne (one of the largest lists in Hong Kong), fine china and white tablecloths.
