The Chinese New Year will fall on the 22nd of January (Sunday) this year, to celebrate the Chinese New Year and welcome the year of Rabbit, we are having a special Chinese New Year menu for that week.
During the Chinese New Year Eve and New Year, certain dishes are eaten for their symbolic meaning. Lucky food is served during the 16-day festival season, especially on Pre- New Year dinner on Lunar New Year's Eve, which is believed to bring good luck for the coming year.
The auspicious symbolism of these traditional Chinese New Year foods is based on their pronunciations or appearance. Not only do the dishes themselves matter, but also the preparation, and ways of serving and eating mean a lot.
The dish below are all sharing portion so would be enough for at least 2 people sharing, and in this time of the year, plenty of food is necessary and it means there are excess and plenty for the rest of the year!

BRAISED VEGETABLES WITH RED FERMENTED BEANCURD (VEGETARIAN) €23
It is actually my most favourite dish for New year because it contains all many delicious vegetables like Shitaki mushroom, woodear mushroom, Chinese cabbage, Tofu Puffs and bean vermicelli etc, when eating all the rich food in Chinese New Year, this dish is like an Oasis on the table!

PRAWN in Chinese sound like 'Laughter ' we believe having Prawn for the New Year or the New Year Eve Dinner, will bring Happiness and Laughter in the household for the whole year.

A good and proper Sweet and Sour dish is not easy to come by, and this is not the luminous version that you might come across in the past, sweet and sour and fruity, but not overly sweet nor sour, the balance of flavour is the key, this beautiful dish is one of the most popular dish in Canton, we are serving this with a delicious Celebration Fried Rice, that is cooked with Chinese Pork Sausage, Chicken and Egg.
