Lunar New Year 2021, News,
Celebrate Year of the Ox at Din Tai Fung
Join the herds at Din Tai Fung Australia this Lunar New Year, with the launch of special menu items from 8 February 2021.
Din Tai Fung has created a cute “Masked Ox Bun”. Filled with decadent molten chocolate, these lil ox are available in a set of 2 for $8.80 at all Din Tai Fung venues.
Fancy something savoury? Kick off your Lunar feast with the auspicious and delicious “Wagyu Beef Dumplings”, which are wrapped in red pastry – a colour that represents good fortune and luck. Available for $18.80 (6pcs) at Restaurant venues* and $8.80 (3pcs) at Cafe Court venues*.
Also hoping to usher in luck for 2021, for the first time ever, Din Tai Fung is serving up “Yusheng – prosperity toss salad”. Yusheng is served during Lunar New Year as it symbolises good luck! Yu represents “abundance” and Sheng means “life”. Together the dish name suggests an “abundance of wealth and long life”.
Served with a rainbow of lucky ingredients including smoked salmon and a signature sweet tangy plum sauce, this flavourful salad is believed to usher in prosperity and blessings for the new year.
It is believed that the higher the ingredients are tossed, the more prosperous the year ahead will be!
Yusheng consists of auspicious ingredients and phrases that serve as prompts for good-luck invocations. Here’s how to eat yours!
1) Add Fish Slices & Lemon Juice – “Abundance overflowing throughout the year. Good luck rolling in”.
2) Sprinkle Sesame Seeds & Peanuts – “May your business thrive and prosper”.
3) Pour Plum Sauce & Oil – “May life be sweet and blissful. Money & riches coming your way”.
4) Add Fried Crackers – “Grounds will be covered in gold”.
5) Toss your way to prosperity!!
