This autumn, Hakkasan have launched a limited edition golden menu to celebrate the annual Chinese holiday, Golden Week.
Guests will also walk through a’river of gold’ as they walk throughout the restaurants, where low golden lighting will ripple across the wooden latticing of the cages, adding to the golden week experience.
Gold dim sum and a gold dessert will feature within the exclusive eight course menu and will be available at both Hakkasan restaurants until London Sunday 7th October.
A highlight of the exclusive menu is the Golden dim sum trio which begins the eight courses, featuring a crispy lamb puff, chilli crab dumpling and har gau covered in gold leaf. We tried them all at a preview and they are gorgeous.
There’s also the Hakkasan Signature Peking duck with soy braised quail egg, quite delicious.The menu also includes Crispy suckling pig with spiced soy sauce and Steamed black kingfish fillet with saffron sauce in addition to Salted egg yolk fried rice.
The Golden Week menu finishes off with a Touch of Gold, an exclusive black and gold dessert featuring poached kumquat, sesame crumble, black sesame tuile and a Venezuelan chocolate foam.
Guests can order the exclusive Golden Week cocktail, the Golden era, featuring DiplomÃƒÂ¡tico Planas white rum, pomelo, lemon and five spice, topped off with Louis Roederer Champagne and sprayed with gold mist. This was wonderfully sharp and energising.
Both of the restaurants have altered the rippled lighting throughout the restaurants to become glistening gold, giving the appearance of a’river of gold’ when guests walk into the restaurant.
The Golden Week menu is priced at £88 per person, in tradition with China’s lucky number eight, for parties of two or more.
All dishes will also be available to order a la carte.
