This September, Executive Chef of Hakkasan Chef Tong Chee Hwee and Chef David Muñoz, owner and Executive Chef of StreetXO in Mayfair, will come together in a unique and innovative collaboration to celebrate the Chinese festival of Golden Week at Hakkasan.
The limited edition menu will feature brand new dishes bringing together their collective and diverse influences to create a one-off dining experience at Hakkasan. Combining Chef Tong’s incomparable style with David’s inimitable approach to fine dining, creating high octane dishes that take inspiration from cuisines around the world, the new menu will be unlike anything seen in Hakkasan before. Muñoz will also be working with Hakkasan’s award winning bar team and pastry chefs to bring his reputation as the ‘enfant terrible of Spanish gastronomy’ to bear on this limited edition menu. All dishes will also be available a la carte.
Commenting on the collaboration David Muñoz enthused: “When I first came to London, I had only cooked in Mediterranean restaurants. I had one meal at Hakkasan and it was a revelation. I knew I had to work there. I watched and I learned and I practiced the techniques and recipes I saw in the kitchen and this is how I began to develop my own style that you see at StreetXO. It is an honour to work alongside Chef Tong to bring my own ideas back to Hakkasan for this special Golden Week menu”.
Chef Tong commented: “I’m delighted to be working with Chef David Muñoz again. We worked together many years ago in the Hakkasan kitchen at the beginning of his illustrious career, so it’s wonderful to be back here creating a new menu together. I’m excited to work with Chef David to bring his bold and innovative approach to Hakkasan. It’s a unique collaboration and will be a truly special experience for Golden Week this year”.
