Chinese New Year – a time for celebration, contemplation, family gatherings and great food
The Chinese New Year celebrations at the luxurious Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s Dai Pai Dong promises to be extra special . The Chinese New Year falls on 12th February, ushering in what will be known as ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’, or ‘Year of the Ox’ – an animal known for its strength, reliability, calmness, patience and trustworthiness.
You will witness three individually themed offerings at Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s Dai Pai Dong, starting on 12th February with the ‘All-Day Prosperity Feast’ which will feature a special Chinese New Year Yee Sheng Salad called Lo Hei (meaning ‘family reunion’) and dumplings known as Jiaozi (or ‘good luck’). Running between midday and 11 PM, three-hour brunch packages are available from AED 388 per person.
From 13th to 25th February, a special Family Style eight-course set menu will also feature Lo Hei and Steamed Whole Fish. In Chinese tradition, eating fish during the New Year is an expression of goodwill to others. This special menu is priced at AED 298 per person and reservations are required and is available between midday and 11 PM.
Rounding off the festivities will be the Lantern Festival menu on 26th February, featuring an incredible array of premium and traditional dishes. These include Chinese New Year Tang Yuan (glutinous rice balls), which are symbolic in Chinese culture as bringing family safety and unity. Running between midday and 11 PM, three-hour brunch packages are priced from AED 388 per person.
