Chinese gastrobar and restaurant Duckee launches Chinese New Year fair
Time Out says
With workshops, games and food tastings that run from February 26-28
With Chinese New Year winding down this weekend, modern Chinese restaurant and bar Duckee in Causeway Bay’s Lee Garden Three, is hosting a Chinese New Year fair at the venue from February 26 to 28. The fair will host a series of workshops, booth games, and food tastings, for friends and families to enjoy together.
The fair’s booths will be made for entertainment and cultural experiences, along with plenty of food and drink to try. Think cocktails, hand-pulled noodles, and xiaolongbao workshops; Chinese wine tastings; physiognomy (face) and Chinese medicine pulse readings; mahjong DIY and bingo; and various snack and cocktail stalls. There will even be a wishing tree at the front entrance to take down everyone’s wishes.
Food-wise, expect six stalls offering a variety of snacks such as typhoon shelter salt-and-pepper squid, barbecued pork pastries, pan-fried rice rolls with shrimp paste, and stinky tofu to name a few. Some of the booths will also charge a discretionary fee with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to a local animal shelter Catherine's Puppies.
Workshop prices range from $20 to $98 per 30-minute session, while some experiences are free of charge. Snacks are priced from $28 per serving and takeaway cocktails at $68 per pack.
