Ben suggested to go for a Hakka meal on a Saturday afternoon. Hakkasan has a new fall menu; Hakka Dinner for 4 at $88.88.
Although the menu is for dinner, you can pre-order it if you would like it for lunch.
The first course is soup and appetizer. The soup is a pork and papaya double boil soup. The soup is flavourful with a clean taste.
The appetizer is Crispy Fried Stuffed Tofu Puff. It is served with sweet chili sauce. As the name suggest, it has a crispy texture.
The rest of the dishes are meant for sharing. The above is Hakka braised Pork Belly. There is a recipe on this blog of a similar dish.
The sauce goes super great with steamed rice. The price of the dinner does not include rice. How can we have the above dish without rice. So, we ordered a bowl of rice for each one.
The next sharing dish is Ancient style Salt Baked Chicken. This dish also needs pre-ordering. The chicken has a light salty taste and the meat is tender.
The above sharing dish is Sauteed Fish with Pickled Vegetables. I love the pickled vegetables which brings out my appetite.
The last sharing dish is Country style Steamed Egg. There is some ground pork in it and topped with some salted egg yolk.
The house dessert is mini Sesame Ball with Red Bean Paste.
It was a pricier meal than regular Chinese restaurant but the dishes is slightly more refine.
