Shanghai Night

20 Jul 2019

Jade Restaurant x Soulmate present: 
The first thematic dinner in Medan; Shanghai Night

It began with Jade Restaurant’s idea to hold a private dining experience with special dishes. Chef Joey, known for his Chinese-cuisine specialty, proposed a six-course menu limited to the guests.

We collaborated to arrange the modern take on a 1950’s Shanghai night feast filled with classic Shanghainese entertainment such as Calligraphy and oriental music by Skycoustic. The restaurant was decorated accordingly to create an authentic Shanghai vibe at Jade Restaurant. 
Guests were welcomed by usher in Cheongsam and seated on a round table. Chinese tunes was filling the air, welcome drinks were served and ‘instagrammable’ photo-booth was made available.
Chef Joey made a speech before the dinner began, then food is served course-by-course, leaving the guest wanting more. Everyone seemed to enjoy singing along #throwback songs with the interactive live band, meanwhile Calligraphy master shows off the beautiful strokes of meaningful Chinese characters. Guests are allowed to guess the meaning of written characters and bring it home as souvenirs.
