Keeping this one short and sweet guys.
My family and I are regular diners at Hakkasan in Mayfair. The food is consistently good, the cocktails are lush and the atmosphere - dark and sensous.
Our most recent visit was to celebrate my sister's recent qualification as an Optometrist (or Optician, for those of you who are wondering what an Optometrist is). We decided on an early dinner which meant we were just in time for the 3 course menu for £35; not bad for a restaurant in Mayfair with an excellent reputation and a Michelin star.
First up, the Dim Sum Selection. We ordered the vegetarian and non-vegetarian options for maximum variety. It was a decent sized starter and all of the dishes were as expected. My favourite was the venison puff, which is peaking out on the bottom right hand corner of the photo below.
Next, the mains. They were all lovely but the Chicken and Cod were very similar in flavour with sweet undertones.
Stir Fry Silver Cod in Sweet and Sour Sauce...
Sanpei Chicken Claypot with Sweet Basil, Chilli and Spring Onion...
Stir Fry Black Pepper Rib-Eye Beef (our favourite main course)...
All of the mains were also served with yummy Pak Choi and Jasmine Rice.
We ended the evening with two orders of macaroons (to take home) and the following, which need no introduction...
If set menus aren't your thing and you're ordering off of the a la carte menu, definitely check out the following:
- Crispy Duck Salad
- Black Truffle Roast Duck
- Hakka (an amazingly refreshing cocktail with vodka, sake, lychee juice, lime, coconut and passion fruit).
A quick and light meal at a fabulous Michelin Star Cantonese Restaurant at £35 per head. I highly recommend it!
