Chinese New Year 2015: Eat in or Eat out?

Kung Hei Fat Choy, tomorrow is the first day of the Chinese New Year and it’s the Year of the Ram, Goat or Sheep and will last 15 days. This year, I’ve decided to eat in on the day of Chinese New Year but eat out to celebrate with my HOH WOK CLUB!

I’m very thrilled to announce HAKKASAN, the beautiful teak paneled and sleek Chinese restaurant inside the iconic Fountainbleau Hotel, Miami Beach will be hosting my HOH WOK CLUB sit down lunch, Sunday, March 1st, so please SAVE THE DATE! It was very short notice organizing this, so menu is still to be locked down, however, it is ON! We discussed a 3 course lunch from their a la carte menu, it’s the best deal in town!


I hope you’ll join me in this incredible restaurant that represents Asian culture and cuisine at its best!  HAKKASAN is a restaurant I’m proud and honored to be associated with. I only want to bring you the best so you’ll have a wonderful experience to remember, so bring your family and friends and let’s celebrate the Year of the Ram!
