Hakkasan is packed!

Tonight, I had dinner at Hakkasan and that place was packed! Talk about the power of Michelin. Even with a reservation, I had to wait twenty minutes for a table. I was really glad to see them having good business......Well, at least for the next ten minutes anyway.

Since that place was fully booked, service was really, really slow and poor. I had to wait 20 to 30 minutes between the dishes. Water glass was abandoned empty, dirty dishes were not taken away on time, etc, etc.

I ordered one appetizer and two main dishes, and it took me 2 hours to finish these.
I gave up to order dessert because I was afraid it would take another 30 minutes to an hour.
Instead, I stopped by Magnolia on the way back home and bought a slice of icebox cake. I am eating it as I write this.
