Hakkasan’s Executive Chefs have summoned the spirit of prosperity, strength, and health into a stellar menu to honor the energies and themes of the upcoming lunar cycle. Start your meal with the Red Dragon cocktail, a flavorful blend of Belvedere vodka, honey, lime, dragon fruit, and sparkling berry sake. Throughout this limited-time experience, patrons can indulge in the luxurious Wishes of Prosperity dim sum duo that’s gained popularity at Hakkasan Riyadh. The pair features lobster and cheese lantern puffs—a nod to the New Year custom of burning lanterns—as well as the exquisite Black truffle wild mushroom dumplings, symbolizing resilience and the robustness of nature’s bounty. An A4 Wagyu Beef Cucumber Salad is also on the menu with a flavor and texture combination like no other. A claypot Chilean sea bass (a traditional Chinese cooking method) is also available with a mushroom sauce, shallots, and garlic.
