HAKKASAN LAS VEGAS RESTAURANT CELEBRATES GOLDEN WEEK WITH AN EXCLUSIVE MENU OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE FARE WITH A LUXURY TWIST
This autumn, Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will celebrate the annual Chinese holiday Golden Week Monday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 12. To mark Golden Week, the restaurant will feature a limited edition chef’s menu. In addition, guests who dine on the specialty menu will receive an exclusive takeaway gift in celebration of the holiday.
Golden Week is considered to be China’s biggest annual national holiday, spanning seven days in October where all workers are given three days of paid time off. Consequently it is a popular period of time when the Chinese travel significantly around the world to experience luxury offerings. Traditionally Golden Week takes place October 1 through 7; however, Hakkasan will be offering the dedicated menus for a longer period of time to accommodate all travelers.
International Development Chef Ho Chee Boon has created a special menu to cater specifically to traditional Chinese tastes. For parties of two or more, the set chef’s menu is $138 per person and includes Peking duck with Tsar Nicoulai Reserve caviar; dim sum platter; braised whole seabass in claypot; spicy Szechuan rib-eye beef with enoki mushroom; roasted crispy chicken with wild mushroom in oyster sauce; crispy prawn with dried chili and cashew nut; fried rice with diced abalone, and to finish, black sesame and chocolate dumplings with ginger and yuzu tea. A box containing hand-made golden macarons are given at the end of the meal for each guest to take home as a gift.
To ensure the experience in the restaurant is enjoyable, Hakkasan has Cantonese-speaking staff on-site and in reservations, and accepts China Union Pay, the Chinese credit card of choice. Menus and websites will be Cantonese translated and staff will be fully trained in Chinese etiquette.
In addition to Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant, several Hakkasan restaurants around the world including London, Shanghai, Beverly Hills, Miami, New York and San Francisco will also be celebrating Golden Week with exclusive menus in order to provide the experience to Chinese nationals who are traveling elsewhere. Each participating restaurant’s menu will vary and offer a slightly different twist tailored to each location.
