Chinese cuisine is always the one every foodie's heart returns to. A hot plate of noodles, flavorful Kung Pao Chicken, yummy dim sums, and a smorgasbord of varied piquant flavors is always the USP of every good Chinese meal. And for gourmands like us who are big into comfort food, good restaurants that understand and explore the nuances of Chinese food are always a godsend!
Mumbai folks, if the thought of this classic wok-tossed, sauce-doused, fiery cuisine, makes you salivate, then without a doubt, what you need is to rush to what can easily be described as the best Chinese restaurant in Mumbai- Hakkasan.
A Mecca for Chinese food lovers, Hakkasan—Alan Yau's Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant all the way from London—opened its doors in Mumbai in 2011 and since then it has redefined the meaning of upscale dining. With every detail carefully considered, Hakkasan Mumbai captures the spirit of London’s contemporary culinary scene and presents a modern approach to authentic Cantonese cuisine. It has become known for a unique dining experience with cinematic ambiance and a mystique vibe.
The chic understated elegance that this fine-dining Michelin star restaurant stands for, is matched by its menu offerings of modern Cantonese food.
Their team of culinary maestros is instrumental in creating the ‘Only at’ local section of the menu, ensures that the local ingredients shine and the dishes are executed to perfection. With its Modern Cantonese decadence, plush interiors, wooden lattices, and blue-lit bar, Hakkasan is indeed the perfect place to be for decadent dining experiences in the city.
Hakkasan’s unique menu blends authentic Cantonese recipes with contemporary influences. With dishes inspired by ancient recipes passed through generations, an extensive selection of over 400 wines from all over the world, innovative cocktail creations, artistic patisserie, and iconic design, this globally loved eatery’s Mumbai outpost is indeed the crown jewel of the city’s dynamic culinary landscape.
Coming to food recommendations from their stellar menu, we absolutely love their Crispy Duck Salad, which is the perfect choice for a light lunch. The salad is a mix of crispy duck slices, fresh microgreens, pomelo, pine nuts, and shallots. It is tossed in a light dressing which makes it ideal for the season.
A haven for dumpling lovers, each dumpling at Hakkasan is a masterpiece. Their Truffle & Carrot Dumplings are delicately wrapped, saffron-hued delights that feature a carrot puree filling and are laced with truffle oil. A culinary masterpiece that charts our must-try list.
Non-vegetarians are sure to love the Chicken & Prawn Hibiscus Dumpling, these pink-hued beauties garnished with hibiscus petals are a testament to Hakkasan’s modern culinary techniques, delicate artistry, and a penchant for bringing forth a medley of undiscovered flavors that hit just the right spot.
Their signature Carrot Cake has always been a favorite amongst diners. With robust flavors of roasted garlic, shallots, and chili, this delicious plate is also a part of their Hakka Brunch menu and a delicious little treat that you just can’t miss.
Another brilliant Hakkasan signature is the much loved Braised Pork Belly with Truffle Sauce that features a delectable umami richness and is enjoyed best when paired with their warm, soft Mantou Buns.
To end your Cantonese dining experience on a sweet note, go for their decadent Chocolate Raspberry Sphere drizzled with luxurious chocolate sauce that slowly melts away the chocolate orb, unveiling a hidden surprise inside.
