World-class Cantonese restaurant, Hakkasan Doha, announces new inventive concepts beginning in December. Whether looking for a stirring new Friday “Botanical Brunch Experience”, a chilled “Dim Sum, Then Sum Lunch” offering, or even a remarkable mid-week evening out, Hakkasan welcomes guests for a gastronomic experience bursting with Cantonese flavours. Hakkasan will also kick off the festive season early this year with a special menu running from December 1 until December 31 along with its New Year’s Eve curated menu.
Starting with the indulgent Friday Botanical Brunch Experience, this extravagant meal is in collaboration with one of the most renowned infused botanical brand makers in the world. Guests are invited to this wonderfully inventive Cantonese brunch every Friday through December 24th from 12pm to 4pm. For QAR 498, guests will pair expertly crafted infused botanical drinks and spirits with each bite of this expansive five-course meal. Regular brunch beverages will still be available upon request in addition to fruit blended beverages for QAR 308 per person. Hakkasan Doha’s refined and stylish outdoor terrace officially launched back in October and offers an incredible and lavish space, making it the perfect setting for this sophisticated weekend brunch in town.
The Botanical Brunch Experience will offer guests the Shou menu, which is inspired by one of the ‘5 blessings’ signifying long life, happiness, and harmony. This menu provides guests a unique dining experience and includes favourites such as signature Peking duck, a delectable array of dim sum and small eats, mouth-watering main courses, and finishes with a Chef’s selection of seasonal desserts.
On December 31, the Botanical Brunch Experience will be transformed back into Hakka Brunch, available each Friday from 12pm to 4pm with pricing starting at QAR 308 per person for non-enhanced beverages and QAR 498 for enhanced beverages. The selection of menu items remains the same with Hakka Brunch serving the Shou menu but offering regular brunch beverages.
Next up is the special Dim Sum, Then Sum Lunch, available every Saturday from 12 pm to 4 pm. This menu features everything from the always-popular Roasted duck pumpkin dumplings to Wagyu beef puff and King crab dumplings for QAR 98 for three baskets or QAR 148 for five baskets. Each basket contains three pieces of dim sum. Dim sum means ‘touching the heart’ in Cantonese, and the Dim Sum, Then Sum Lunch engages with the unique elements of our personality. Calmness, tranquility, and humility are translated into a simple, elegant, and vibrant experience that is unique to Hakkasan’s Chinese roots.
Finally, guests are welcome to celebrate this year’s festive season in style with two exclusive menus starting December 1 until December 31, including the Festive menu and the New Year’s Eve menu.
