A sampling of vegetarian dim sum at Hakkasan
Unbeknownst to most Miami foodies, Haute Chinese eatery Hakkasan has a special dim sum tasting menu ($28) that is only available during lunchtime on weekends. Available in four courses, the menu includes a plethora of tasty dim sum options with preparations ranging from pan-seared to deep-fried to barbecued to steamed.
The course categories themselves are individually named after an aspect of Chinese lore, so don’t be taken aback when they’re referred to as either dynasty, emperor, temple, or forbidden. Highlights include roasted duck and scallop shu mai; Jasmine tea-soaked ribs with Singapore vermicelli; classic Cantonese sweet and sour pork; and stir-fried pumpkin in black bean sauce. The price is based on a two-guest minimum per table and excludes beverages, tax, and gratuity. Saturday, Sunday; NOON–3 PM. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-276-1388
