This October, Hakkasan Abu Dhabi welcomes local and worldwide travellers to celebrate and explore the celebrated Chinese Golden Week in style, as they experience a uniquely curated Cantonese menu. Starting from 1st until 7th of October 2019, Hakkasan will offer the most exclusive Golden Week menu priced at AED 398 per person for a minimum of two guests. This menu will allow guests to savour the region’s most decadent and exquisite Chinese dishes, followed by a divine dessert and an exclusive beverage.
We were invited to have a sneak peek of the menu. To begin the Golden Pumpkin Soup with Money Bag and Morel Mushroom, a light yet flavourful dish which sets the tone for the evening. Next (my second favourite dish of the evening) the succulent Chinese flavours of Hakkasan’s most popular Supreme Dim Sum Platter, consisting of Lobster, Vegetable and Crab Dim Sum. Although all are enjoyable the Lobster Dim Sum is exceptional. The Supreme Dim Sum Platter is followed by Stir-fry Wagyu Beef with Yam Bean and Pine Nut, which is accompanied by Crispy Lady Fish with Mango in a Sweet Plum Sauce. Both are divine but the Stir-fry Wagyu Beef is the preferred dish of the two.
For the main course, (and my favourite dish of the evening) we enjoy the Wok-Seared Tiger Prawns, slightly salty to the taste but plump and meaty in texture, this dish is the highlight of the menu. My dining companion is at odds as he prefers the Jasmine Smoked Mala Chicken.
To end on a sweet note, guests can sample the delicate flavours of Black Tea and Yuzu Pear with Ginger and Dulce Cream, that is the Golden Ring. Now having previously been slightly critical of Hakkasan’s dessert options, I can honestly say that this dessert is delicious and a perfect end to our dining experience.
Each guest can meander through the elegant dining venue, they can expect to feast their eyes on modern architecture and fully curated interior designs. The venue’s exquisite interior also offers four beautiful and secluded private dining rooms which are perfect for gatherings and intimate dinners. Hakkasan Abu Dhabi’s ambience is perfectly matched to the award-winning menu on offer. This year’s Golden Week is made better by Abu Dhabi’s Hakkasan, with a relaxed Asian ambience that is brought to life by authentic Cantonese food and awe-inspiring majestic views of Emirates Palace.
AED 398 per person for a minimum of two guests. Guests can enjoy an exclusive beverage and a range of Cantonese delights. Menu available from Tuesday October 1st to Monday 7th October 2019.
