Chongqing Carrotmob Preview

With just over 5 days before the launch event of the “Original” Szechuan Chongqing’s new Ocean Wise menu, the Ocean Wise team and I joined Doug and Aimee from Mission Hill Wineries for a sneak preview of the dishes that guests will be enjoying at next Wednesday’s “So Fresh + So Wise” CarrotMob.

In the capable hands of Chongqing’s Michelin Star Chef, Robert Wong, and host Managing Director, Lisa Wong, we sampled traditional Szechuan dishes highlighting the new ocean-friendly seafood items and Chongqing’s take on a Sans Fin Soup.

This banquet style, 8-course, menu will be served at the “So Fresh + So Wise” CarrotMob event with 4 select wine pairings generously sponsored by Mission Hill Winery.
