Hakkasan has just launched there Ramadan menu for summer 2012. At AED 188 for 3 courses of these special Cantonese delicacies, you really can't go wrong. The first course consists of a choice of four different tasty bites pictured below.
The Chilean Seabass Shumai with a black bean sauce was delicate and savory. Encased in rice paper and complimented by glass noodles, these morsels were easy to enjoy and a light and healthy way to break your fast.
Onto the mains, we begin with my favorite, the Charcoal Grilled Black Cod with Chinese Chives. The delicate fish paired with a sweet sauce and crispy mushroom is making my mouth water as I'm typing. It's one of those items that you will think about and crave, and will go back for.....
One thing I've noticed from my my past visits to this swanky establishment is that they do beef very well. My all time favorite dish on the regular Hakkasan menu are the Tea Smoked Wagyu short ribs. This Braised Wagyu Beef with Szechuan pepper and a sesame peanut sauce was a close second. Sesame in any cuisine is usually a huge incentive for me to order, but the pairing with beef and peanut sauce, takes it one step further to a full on flavor explosion!
