The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai is gearing up for two Halloween events on Saturday, October 31—a Halloween-themed buffet at Portman’s Restaurant and an immersive theater extravaganza at The Ritz Bar & Lounge.
Spooktacular Halloween Buffet
Portman’s Restaurant will be welcoming a grand spread of a dinner buffet featuring creative Halloween-inspired foods alongside contemporary Western and Asian fare.
The evening’s buffet includes a salad bar, Chinese cold dishes, a cold cuts and cheese station, seafood on ice, soups, dim sum, and Western and Chinese hot dishes. That’s everything from yellow wine drunk chicken to smoked salmon, freshly poached prawns to pumpkin soup, and clam stews to wok-fried beef with mushrooms.
At the center of the buffet will be a carving station, showcasing rounds of beef marinated in soy, garlic and Dijon mustard, slabs of roasted lamb, whole roasted chickens with zingy chili lime sauce, miso-baked salmon, and roasted BBQ pork ribs.
The dessert station will overflow with more than just trick-or-treat candies, loaded with intricately crafted confectionaries and sweets in the theme of Halloween.
Speaking of trick-or-treat, Lucky, The Ritz-Carlton Lion will be leading troupes of young’uns to collect candies and sweets throughout the evening.
The buffet is ¥298 per person, half-price for kids ages 12 and under, complimentary for kids 6 and under. From 5:30pm-8:30pm.
