Hakkasan has been on our list of favourites since its launch for its delicious food and the quality of ingredients. But the hole-in-pocket pricing was always a big drawback. Hakkasan, on the occassion of its third anniversary, has tried to change the brand’s perception by launching a 4 course set lunch menu priced at just Rs.1200+tax, yes, that’s a steal!
When we dropped by to try it out, we were delighted with the options. You can pick 3 things from their small eats section, 2 from the mains, 2 from the rice/noodles and 1 from the desserts option.
We started off with the dumplings, the Chicken & Prawn Shumai, the Hargau and the Pakchoi Dumpling were our favourites. Juicy, melt in the mouth dumplings, we couldn’t have just one. Additionally, we ordered for our favourite Duck Fried Rolls from the à la carte menu, they can never go wrong with these.
From the mains, the Steamed Indian Salmon in Black Bean Sauce was tender and perfectly cooked and the Chicken Ho fun Noodles were well prepared, flat noodles with a generous quantity of chicken pieces and sprouts. Although we would’ve loved to try the beef version of it as traditionally ho fun noodles are supposed to be cooked with beef.
For desserts, we tried the Three Chocolate Bavarois with Coconut & Lemon Sorbet – the texture of the bavarois was fabulous and the Coconut and Lemon Sorbet perfectly complimented. The Blueberry and White Chocolate Parfait with a Blueberry Sorbet was a great dessert too. We really have to say, the Sorbets at Hakkasan completely overpower the rest of the dessert, but we’re not complaining.
Overall, at Rs.1200, the set menu is a steal. Go try it out before June 30th and we assure you, you’ll have a great time.
