A more Modern take on Chinese cuisine.

What was the vibe?

I came here for a ChineseBites media dinner where a group of us was able to sample their signature dishes.

What did I order?


Chef’s Signature Pork & Snow Fungus Soup in Young Coconut

  • The soup is served inside of a coconut, which made the broth taste amazing because of the mild coconut flavour.
  • While it was a little difficult to eat, you could scoop the coconut meat out with a spoon and it was very flavourful from soaking up all the broth.
  • This isn’t your typical soup served at a Chinese restaurant and is definitely worth trying.


Ancient Style Salt Baked Chicken

  • The chicken was presented in the salt brine and then cut up into pieces for us to eat.
  • The chicken was plain and I probably would have preferred some sort of sauce with it, but the meat was tender.


Braised Pork Hock

  • Pork hocks are always delicious because of how fatty and tender the meat is, so I was excited when this dish came out.
  • The sauce was sweet and tangy and went well with the rich, fatty pork.


Honey Roasted Pork Cheeks

  • This was like a more upscale version of bbq style pork.
  • The pork had a sweet and sticky flavour to it from the honey.
  • The meat itself was tender and juicy.


Steamed Specialty Odorless Garlic Lobster on Jasmine Rice

  • I have never had “odorless” garlic before, but I am slightly skeptical about it since I love the aroma of garlic
  • The lobster was tasty and there was plenty of garlic and green onion topping to make it flavourful.


Stirfry Fish with Pickled Cabbage

  • I was pleasantly surprised by how tender and flakey the fish was even though it was deep fried. The fish also had a nice crispy coating.


Hakka Homestyle Steamed Egg, Pork with Duck Yolk

  • I have never had a dish like this before and it was like eating a savoury custard.
  • It was very rich, heavy, and indulgent.


Mui Choy Stirfry Seasonal Greens

  • Chinese style greens are always one of my favourite dishes and I look forward to them after all the heavy meat dishes.
  • These were cooked well so they had a bit of bite to them and were topped with a savoury sauce that had a salty flavour to it.

Disclosure: I did not pay for my meal.

Final Thoughts?

Hakkasan Bistro has a lot of interesting and creative Chinese dishes that can’t be found elsewhere.
