8 Hanway Place
Hakkasan, tucked away in a little alley, is famous for being the recipient of the first Michelin * ever awarded to a Chinese restaurant back in 2003.
Hakkasan is dark and sexy, yet an old-world feel oozes from its dark oak panelling, gorgeous chinese wooden shutters to the cool breeze from the whirring ceiling fans.
Stir Fry Black Pepper Rib Eye Beef with Merlot (£18.8)
Perfectly tender cuts of beef and beautifully coated in a delicious black pepper sauce.
Braised Organic Pork Belly in Plum Sauce (£15.8)
Sticky fragrant pork belly morsels which melt in your mouth.
Diced Vegetable and Preserved Olive Fried Rice (£8)
Flavours were subtle enough not to overpower the dishes, yet far superior to the traditional white rice.
Braised Lamb in Chinese Five Spice with Chestnut, Mooli & Red Date (£16)
Soft and succulent chunks of lamb in a thick luscious gravy.
Homemade Tofu, Aubergine and Japanese Mushroom Claypot with Chilli & Black Bean Sauce(£11.8)
Three of my favourite things in one little claypot. Could I love this dish any more? Tofu and aubergine, both incredibly soft and silky and tender juicy mushrooms.
We dropped by for a quick bite but I’m looking forward to coming back for their beautiful selection of dimsum.
Hakkasan has succeeded in the near impossible, making Chinese cuisine sexy. With its dainty portions and little twists, it loses none of the familiar bold hearty flavours I adore in Chinese cuisine and I’m loving what I’m seeing here.
