Foodie Alert! Birthday treat at Hakkasan Restaurant, London

After all the talk of my friends telling me how amazing this place was, I finally, after about a year got around to going for my birthday dinner. Located at Bruton Street in Mayfair, I almost walked right past with very limited signage apart from one security guard to open the massive dark wooden door for you. We started the evening with abit of home away from home – a nice bottle of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand wine.

The menu for both starters and mains seemed decent with plenty of variety. I was in my normal ‘indecisive’ mood but I had been informed about how amazing the Dim sum was so my first thought was to of course order the 8 piece selection for the starter. We also went for the Vegetarian option for comparison.

For the mains we ordered the sizzling peking duck and lemongrass rib eye beef with a side of Jasmine rice. Both orders came out in a timely manner. The dim sum I could not fault – mixed with a hint of chilli sauce it was absolutely divine. The duck was cooked to perfection and the flavours… well outstanding to say the least.

We finished up with a Jivara bomb dessert. This incorporated of Hazelnut ice cream with puffed rice and chocolate sauce. I’m not going to lie but it was a good thing we shared it as it was super rich however very tantalizing on the palate!

The restaurant itself was fabulous although slightly noisy, the overall experience and service was outstanding.

Happy eating,

Square Meal
