definitely prefer Chinese New Year to regular old western New Year – what better excuse is there to eat dim sum and a whole lot of other Chinese grub? In London, there’s arguably no better place to do that than Yauatcha which has just launched its Chinese New Year menu at both the Soho and Broadgate Circle outposts. This being the year of the monkey, Yauatcha has teamed up with Monkey 47 Gin to create a flight of special cocktails to accompany the menu. It includes Saffron Gin and Tonic, Pomelo Fortune with grapefruit, cranberry and mandarin bitters, and Pink Kumquat with sloe gin and ginger liqueur.

The menu features a number of traditional dishes, such as the Hakka fortune pot, an authentic stew of seafood symbolising happy reunion, and Yauatcha scallop yusheng, a dish symbolising abundance, prosperity and vigour. There’s also six new macarons inspired by the flowers, herbs and spices of Monkey 47, including Juniper berry, Bitter orange and almond, Camomile and Gin and tonic with grapefruit. Happy New Year we say.
