If you dine at Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant at MGM Grand this month you’ll not only be getting a great meal but you’ll be helping to make the holidays brighter for others as well.

The restaurant is partnering with Three Square Food Bank to bring awareness to Las Vegas’ hunger needs throughout the holiday season.

For each guest who dines at the restaurant during the month of December, Hakkasan Las Vegas will donate $5 to directly support Three Square’s hunger relief programs that will benefit nearly 600 Program Partners in Southern Nevada, which includes food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs, faith-based organizations, senior centers and more. For every dollar donated, Three Square is able to provide three meals, and guests have the opportunity to donate additional funds to help the cause once their check is presented.

Some of the menu items at Hakkasan include a crispy duck salad with pomelo, pomegranate and pine nut; hot and sour soup with chicken; or the Hakka Fried Dim Sum Platter, made with roasted duck pumpkin puff, XO scallop puff and crispy prawn dumpling.

For dessert, don’t miss the coconut pudding with coconut pearl pudding, caramelized spiced pineapple and lime financier.

The program will culminate with a celebratory event in January 2014, where Hakkasan Las Vegas will provide Three Square with a check for the full donation amount generated.
