Mott 32 Vancouver: Year of the Rabbit Lunar New Year Menu
It’s time to ring in the Year of the Rabbit, and the city’s premier destination for traditional Chinese fare with a contemporary twist, Mott 32 Vancouver, will be serving up a masterful Lunar New Year menu.
Created by the Group Chinese Executive Chef Lee Man Sing from Hong Kong and the culinary team in Vancouver, Mott 32’s Year of the Rabbit menu comprises thoughtfully selected dishes that symbolize good fortune, good health, luck and prosperity, showcasing an array of specialty ingredients.
Available January 20 – February 5 for lunch and dinner, Mott 32’s elegant Lunar New Year offerings can be ordered a la carte or as a set menu.
Look for dishes like the refreshing, elegant and deeply satisfying Whole Lobster Salad, designed for sharing and featuring dried abalone and a soy and sesame dressing, or a luxurious blend of Alaskan King Crab meat with tender E-Fu Noodles covered with supreme broth and a local free range egg. A Fried Arrowhead Cake is hand-crafted with the bulbs of the arrowhead plant – only available at Lunar Near Year and enjoyed as a traditional snack.
“The Year of the Rabbit is predicted to be a year of hope; the sign of the Rabbit itself is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity,” said Robert Stelmachuk, Wine Director at Mott 32 Vancouver. “To elevate the celebration, each of our Lunar New Year dishes can be served with a specially-curated wine pairing.”
This year, Lunar New Year’s Eve falls on January 21, and Lunar New Year’s Day on January 22. The Lunar New Year celebration starts on New Year’s Eve and is complete after the Lantern Festival, which falls on February 5 in 2023. Traditionally, red decorations, ‘Fai Chun’, and red paper banners that carry auspicious four-character blessings in Chinese are hung, and children are gifted red envelopes containing money. The Lunar New Year is a significant time for gathering with family members and friends to share blessings with each other and to feast on special dishes.
