Enjoyed time out in the sun? A fabulous feast with Dad for Father’s Day? Keep the celebrations and summer antics going with the latest selection of menus to sample: Popcorn mille crêpes from Lady M that’s essentially a fancy step-up to the movie-time staple, fiery vegan bowls from Sichuanese Hot ‘N’ Meen to amp up the summer heat (if the mid-30 climes isn’t already warm enough) or a charming summertime picnic featuring a tasty selection of classic fine-foods purveyor Fortnum’s top hits. Pick your fancy below.

Hot ‘N’ Meen launches a new vegan selection

Chilli Fagara’s delivery-only concept, Hot ‘N’ Meen, has extended its menu to offer a vegan take on the signature, fiery selection of crowd favourite knife-cut noodles and dumplings. The renewed creations, keeping with the fragrant, flavour-packed notes of the original, are remade with popular plant-based meat alternatives like Impossible Meat and the latest jackfruit-based alternative, Karana. Sample the Karana Dan Dan Meen served with a slathering of the rich, peanut sauce and the palate-cooling Rainbow Meen, a Sichuan-take on the Buddha bowl, also remade with Karana and mixed with colourful fresh veggies in a generous coat of peanut and sesame sauce.

Hot ‘N’ Meen is available exclusively on Deliveroo.

Lady M boutique at Taikoo Place and a new crepe cake to celebrate 

The next time that midday sugar-craving sneaks in, satiate it with a trip to Lady M. Specifically the new boutique at Taikoo Place so that an extra slice (or two) will be warranted — you’d want to show your support to a new concept, wouldn’t you? We’d recommend going for the latest variation of the confectioner’s signature mille crêpes — Popcorn Mille Crêpe — which layers 20, wafer-thin crêpes between buttery popcorn creme made from handcrafted popcorn. On top, a crispy, caramelised layer of golden popcorn and cream blonde chocolate and caramel ganache. The Popcorn Mille Crepe is exclusively available at the Taikoo outpost until 23 June and will be distributed to citywide locations onwards.

A very British summertime with Fortnum & Mason

With all the beautiful sunshine weather we’ve been having, there’s no better time for a picnic than now — not without, of course, a list of essentials that’ll liberate you from the scorching sun: A red-and-white checkered blanket. A packable parasol for the shade. SPF. And lest we forget, a hamper chock-full of Fortnum & Mason essentials. Aside from the favourites — sparkling tea; clotted cream biscuits — we’ll be packing the British brand’s famous Rose Petal Jelly, recently debuted in Hong Kong, and the Fortnum’s Green Tomato Chutney for a delicious selection of sweet-and-savoury sammies while on stretching out the lawn.

“Crabtastic” new recipes at Sexy Crab 

Two risqué new recipes added to Sexy Crab’s unapologetically raunchy roster: Urchin for More, a decadent platter of purple, plum-flavoured chilled somen with Hokkaido sea urchin, Japanese snow crab and the add-on option of French caviar from Caviar House & Prunier. And Hotter and Harder, a ‘yin-yang’-style bowl of Nanatsuboshi Hokkaido rice with the signature crab roe in a beautifully balanced ‘golden ratio’ of 40 percent meat, 25 percent male role and 35 percent female role as the ‘yang’, set against a serving of Italian truffle sauce with sea urchin and snow crab as ‘yin’.
