On 8th February, the year of the Monkey starts-Chinese New Year 2016. What better way to celebrate than with super duper great dim sum and a bunch of friends:) I know exactly where to go for the best dim sum selection in town-ROYAL CHINA. You can choose to head over to either Baker Street, Fulham Road or the Queensway branch. Celebrate Chinese New Year with style at Royal China.
A bit of background info first. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which exist in the Chinese zodiac. This year is the year of the Monkey. Traditionally, parades take place out on the streets of London with music, traditional dancers and entertainment.
A few tips on celebrating:
1- Wear red- symbolises good luck. Get out your red scraves/hats/jumpers etc
2-Head to China town or the west end on February 14th– when the celebrations will take place
3-Eat Chinese food- I vote for Royal China
I will tell you why number three is a must.
Happy Chinese New Year. Who will be hitting the streets of London with me on February 14th?
