HGP Celebrates Winter With Two Special New Menus (CONTEST)

Chinese New Year Afternoon Tea and a new fondue selection on offer


The Hotel Grand Pacific is kicking off 2017 with two new menu features in The Pacific Restaurant. Dinner guests will be able to keep the winter chills at bay by indulging in the restaurant’s new three-course fondue menu. Later in January, the Year of the Rooster will be celebrated with a special Chinese New Year edition of the hotel’s popular afternoon tea.

A Fondue Experience

For a limited time, The Pacific is featuring a modern twist on a European classic, the fondue. The Pacific Fondue menu includes four varieties, each a fresh take on traditional cheese, broth and chocolate fondues. Diners have the option of a three-course fondue menu for $80 per couple, or ordering a la carte from the following:

– Truffle & Roasted Garlic Cheese Fondue served with baguette, vegetables, and apple;

– Spiced Beef or Cioppino Tomato Broth Fondues, served with beef and chicken, along with vegetables and dipping sauces;

– Grand Marnier Dark Chocolate Fondue, served with fresh fruit, marshmallows, banana cakes and whipped cream.

Additional items for dipping can be added to the fondues, including prawns, lobster tail, and cheese tortellini.

Year of the Rooster Celebration

The Hotel Grand Pacific is known for its annual Chinese New Year celebrations, and this year will be no different! From January 26 to February 5 inclusive, The Pacific Restaurant will offer a Chinese New Year Afternoon Tea, available between 12:00 pm and 4:30 pm. Created by the hotel’s Executive Chef Rick Choy, the menu offers an alternative to The Pacific’s popular West Coast Afternoon Tea service, complete with auspicious, Asian-influenced savoury items such as Steamed Buns with Soy Ginger Chicken and Prosciutto Chive Scallop Mousse. Sweet creations will include a Chinese Pineapple Bar and Almond Lychee Gelee. Guests also choose from rare, limited edition teas curated by Silk Road’s tea master, Daniela Cubelic. Priced at $45 per person (plus taxes and gratuity), reservations for Chinese New Year Afternoon Tea are required, and can be made by calling 250.380.4458.

It’s Tea Time

The Pacific Restaurant offers a selection of different afternoon tea experiences throughout the year, celebrating different seasons and special occasions. The Pacific’s West Coast Afternoon Tea is available throughout the year and is a modern twist on a traditional afternoon tea. Along with the curated tea list, guests enjoy treats showcasing Victoria’s local, regional culinary influences with items such as Free Run Organic Egg Salad on Smoked Salmon Rye Bread Pudding, Seared Tuna, Tomato and Bacon on Brioche and Lemon Raspberry Mousse Cake.
