Welcome the Chinese New Year in Style

There’s no better time to enjoy China’s delectable flavors and rich traditions than on Chinese New Year and #YallaEats tells you exactly where to celebrate it in style.

We couldn’t think of a more suitable time to enjoy one of the world’s most favorite cuisines and unique traditions than on Chinese New Year. This month, you can start celebrating this popular festival with a vibrant immersive experience right in the capital’s iconic landmark – Emirates Palace.

The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival which falls on the 5th of February this year will be celebrated with a month-long feast of the senses at the award-winning restaurant, Hakkasan from 28th January to 24th February 2019 – that’s more than enough time for you to indulge!

Your immersive Spring Festival experience will start as you enter the elegant venue and you’re welcomed with a refreshing Liào Liào, a creative drink that serves to set the mood for the experience to ensue. A marvelous Wishing Tree will greet you as you are seated and for a touch of luck, you may opt to write your wishes on red ribbons and tie them to the latticed woodwork – a practice born centuries ago in Lam Tsuen, Hong Kong.

After marveling at the Wishing Tree and hoping wishes would come true, then you can begin enjoying the feast! As a world-class restaurant, you are sure to enjoy timeless and innovative Cantonese signature dishes prepared with the finest ingredients and expert traditional techniques at Hakkasan. On Chinese New Year, you can delight in a special limited edition signature set menu crafted for the occasion.

The signature set menu will feature traditional Chinese delicacies to share through an unforgettable dinner with your loved ones. Dishes will include a wide variety of Asian flavours incorporated into savoury items such as the delectable Peking duck with crispy bean curd and mango, Shacha chicken puffRoasted jasmine chicken with sticky rice, and Wok-fry lamb tenderloin with shiitake, to seafood specialties such as Superior soup with Chilean seabass and bamboo pith, Seafood sesame jian dui, Wok-fry lobster with Chinese chive and lily bulb, Stir-fry pak choi with eryngii and pioppini. To finish the feast on a sweet note, you can enjoy a Wealth Pot, a dessert inspired by traditional Chinese beliefs symbolizing good fortune, in line with Hakkasan’s aim of bringing good luck to its guests over the Chinese New Year.

From Tuesday to Saturday, Hakkasan Abu Dhabi will also host a DJ, setting the mood further while residents and visitors are invited to enjoy the elegant and spacious outdoor terrace overlooking the capital landmark.

Promising an impeccably curated Chinese New Year feast, Hakkasan Abu Dhabi will bring the Spring Festival to life in the UAE capital – a fantastic event that you and your family shouldn’t miss to enjoy!
