This January the Michelin-starred dim sum teahouse, Yauatcha, will honour the eminent colour red for Chinese New Year.
Love trying out new cuisines? Head to Yauatcha, a Chinese dim sum teahouse located in Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, between 16th January and 11th February 2017, for a taste of Chinese culture. Bringing in the year of the rooster in the Chinese calendar, Yauatcha will present two exclusive festive menus: the Chinese New Year Signature menu and the Supreme selection menu, which includes a special limited edition dim sum decorated in a vibrant palette of red, a red patisserie and a red cocktail. Both menus will be available at the restaurant from 16th January to 11th February, 2017.
To begin the celebrations, guests dining on the exclusive festive menus will be offered red beverages, non-alcoholic cocktail Tokyo Cooler or the Black River Martini. In the Chinese culture, the colour red signifies good luck and joy and 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, symbolising fire and fortune.
On the occasion, Head Chef Wang Yixuan has crafted exclusive set menus including the vegetarian Chinese New Year Signature Menu and the non-vegetarian Supreme menu. The Chinese New Year Signature Menu features four courses starting with a selection of salads and small eats such as Mixed Salad with Lotus Root or Truffle Edamame Dumplings and Mushroom Roll with Truffle. The wok dishes include Stir Fry French Beans with Shiitake Mushrooms and Szechuan Mapo Tofu, Stir fry Ho Fun Noodles and Spicy Vegetable Fried Rice with Taro Root.
