Hakkasan launches golden menu to celebrate annual Chinese holiday

This autumn, Hakkasan has launched a limited edition golden menu to celebrate the annual Chinese holiday, Golden Week,which is until 7 October at both London restaurants.

The Golden Week experience begins as soon as guests step into the Hakkasan doors as the restaurants will alter the rippled lighting throughout the restaurants to become glistening gold, giving the appearance of a ‘river of gold’ when diners walk into the restaurant.

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. Guests will also enjoy the Hakkasan Signature Peking duck with soy braised quail egg. 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 Diplomático Planas white rum, pomelo, lemon and five spice, topped off with Louis Roederer Champagne and sprayed with gold mist.

To ensure the experience in the restaurants is enjoyable and efficient, Hakkasan has Mandarin-speaking staff and accepts China Union Pay, the Chinese credit card of choice, in addition to WeChat pay and AliPay for Chinese guests. Hakkasan Group has also launched WeChat and Weibo channels, a first for the restaurant group, in order to communicate directly to the Chinese community in London and across the globe.
