I was surprised by my darling boyfriend with a trip to Hakkasan! I thought I was on my way to Nando’s- but I recognised quickly the road we were walking down- we were near approaching my favourite restaurant of all time!
Ahhh… I just feel at home here. The cocktails are divine, the decor is exquisite and food is just sumptuous. Even if you dont go for dinner, enjoy the gorgeous cocktails at the bar… you’ll be there for so long- you might as well have dinner there too. YUM!
As a vegetarian, fine dining can often be limited- places like the Galvin restaurants, Jamie’s etc seem to think that all us veggies eat is goats cheese and mushroom risotto. FYI i hate goats cheese so much so that I feign an allergy and there’s only so much mushroom risotto you can have in one lifetime.

Hakkassan’s menu isn’t BURSTING with veggie options, but there is certainly enough for a good meal.
The dim sum- OMG my mouth is actually watering. The dim sum is just sublime, I could eat platters and platters of the veggie dim sum!
The vegetarian lettuce wrap is delicious too… The presentation excites me every single time.
When we get to mains- I let my boyfriend choose- rice and the 4 style vegetable stir fry in Szechuan sauce are not usually THAT exciting- but at Hakkasan tastes explode in your mouth, and whilst taking gulps of the delicious cocktails you realise your 2nd bowl is already empty!
The portions are a fair size- and for the quality of food, I think Hakassan is quite adequately price. Im not a food critic- and won’t go into the details of how the garlic is infused with blah blah… i love my food, and I know good food when I try it.. and so I blog about it, share my experience so you can decide if you want to go!
Good food can come from That comes posh fine dining venues like Hakassan to roadside stalls in Asia.. And everything in between! So there’s when it comes to food- there is no excuse not to try something new today!
Where have you eaten that you would recommend? What’s your favourite dish at Hakkasan?
