Alan Yau is not in town, but the next best thing is. Michelin-starred chef Ho Chee Boon is hosting an exclusive dinner this weekend on Saturday May 5 at Hakkasan. Boon will serve an exquisite menu featuring seven courses he’s created himself. Showcasing Boon’s extensive knowledge of world-class Cantonese cuisine, highlights from the menu include royal chicken dumpling in Chinese chive sauce with caviar, crispy Peking duck with foie gras with homemade black sesame pancake, roasted Chilean seabass with kumquat and steamed mushroom lotus rice with Mongolian lamb tenderloin. The meal will finish with coconut mousse, lychee granita, coconut tapioca and coconut lime sorbet.
Boon moved to the US in 2012 to launch Hakkasan New York and was awarded a Michelin star within eight months of opening. He has since headed up all Hakkasan US openings, including San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles as well as Mumbai. Dividing his time between Las Vegas – heading up the flagship restaurant at the iconic MGM Grand – and San Francisco, Boon is responsible for new openings and menu development around the world. His particular focus is on creating new dishes for specific locations using the finest local ingredients. And this is the very reason we are excited about this weekend’s dinner. The exclusive seven-course menu created by Boon is priced at QR428 per person, with a minimum of two guests, and will be available from 7pm-midnight. We assure you there’s no tastier way to spend the coming Saturday and we’ll be around, too.
