HKK London

Cover

Hakkasan’s newest London venture HKK has arrived in the City – which does wonders for my lunch hour. In this case, it was more like an hour and a half, but partly because I got slightly (really) lost in the badlands behind Liverpool Street. I arrived somewhat flushed – equally from the heat and agitation – into an air-conditioned blast of modernist tranquility. My seat was cushy soft, the orchid blossom on the table scented the cool air, the servers all had placid expressions like they’d just been meditating. It felt like the whole place was soothing my workday anxieties.

I was absolutely wowed by the four-course seafood set lunch. The presentation was so dainty but the flavors clobbered me! So delicious.

The service was so efficient, no doubt I could have been in and out within an hour had I not been late getting there – but Magellan himself would have had trouble finding this place! If you have keen navigation skills, you would behoove yourself to dine here one weekday – it’s bonafide City fine dining.
