Compared to the entrées, which are classically Cantonese, the desserts at Hakkasan Miami in Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel are highly contemporary in look and blend Eastern and Western flavors and techniques. Among the offerings you’ll find sweet treats like a soft dark chocolate ganache with banana brûlée, banana bread and chocolate ice cream; a white chocolate bavarois with caramelized white chocolate, passion fruit and yuzu sorbet; and warm chocolate fondant with white coffee ice cream. Our favorite dessert, however, also reflects the flavors of tropical Miami: a silky smooth disc of coconut mousse centered on a black plate, garnished on either side with diced pineapple, morsels of lime sherbet, powdered sugar and gelatinous basil seeds — a striking vision in black, white and yellow. At the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, the upscale Chinese restaurant in Miami Beach, you definitely want to save room for dessert.
