Ocean Park has taken a step in the 'green' direction with its new penguin-themed restaurant, Tuxedos. The restaurant, in the new Polar Adventure section of the park, serves a number of low-carbon dishes and aims to raise awareness of climate change.

Guests enjoy dining in the spacious south-pole-like environment, with only a glass wall separating them from around 70 swimming penguins. The unique experience is perfect for families.

The dimly-lit room has blue lighting, and cosy, curved booths that face the penguin tank, and fake icy climate surroundings, creating a cool atmosphere.

The menu includes dishes made using locally and sustainably-sourced products and organic ingredients. All of the seafood is in line with WWF guidelines.

When ordering the low-carbon meal set, guests can choose between the organic green bean salad with tomato salsa, and the organic garden mixed salad. Main courses include: organic jade perch fish fillet, pan-fried local free range chicken, and organic forest mushrooms with organic brown rice, served with organic vegetables and pumpkin puree. And to top off the whole meal, there's dessert. Guests can opt for the local organic strawberry and bean-curd cake or the seasonal fresh fruit salad.
