The entrance to this gorgeous restaurant was just a little taste of the culinary adventure we were about to embark on....
For starters we enjoyed a gorgeous basket of steamed dim sum (some of the best I've had in Dubai) consisting of Black Pepper Duck, Scallop Shumai with Tobiko, Shrimp and Chive, plus Crystal Dumplings.
Jasmine Tea Smoked Wagyu Beef Short Ribs-I was completely blown away by this dish. The tender beef literally melted in my mouth. The delicate crispy threads of jasmine tea on the plate complemented the gorgeous components of this well comprised dish.
Crispy duck salad with pomelo, pine nut and shallot-One of Hakkasans best selling items. A little birdie also told us this is Kelly Rowland's favorite item on the menu! It was Crispy, Fresh, and Flavorful, I can see why it's so popular!
Champagne and Chinese Honey glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Tempura Mushrooms
Egg Noodle Nest with Wok Fried XO Lamb Chop-Tender, Juicy, and Spicy! I've never tasted lamb like this before. In fact it tasted more like beef than lamb, none the less, a GREAT menu item.
Black truffle roast duck with tea plant mushroom-One of the best Duck items I've ever tried. Crispy skin, tender duck meat, and an aromatic sauce. I think I ended up eating most of this one. It was so good, I didn't want to share!
For dessert a meringue with Brandy Ice Cream and Plum sauce-The smooth and creamy texture of the brandy ice cream was heavenly and perfectly balanced with the fruity rich plum sauce and crunchy textured meringue.
