Lunar New Year, a vibrant and culturally rich celebration, holds immense importance among East and Southeast Asian communities, such as the Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean cultures. Unlike the one-day festivities of the Gregorian calendar's New Year, Lunar New Year spans multiple days, embodying a tapestry of traditions, customs, and joyous moments. In 2024, the Lunar New Year kicks off on February 10th and marks the Year of the Dragon. We've rounded up some of our favourite vendors and food options. Whether you're catering a one-off special celebration for your team or want to choose a traditional vendor for a lunchtime Cloud Canteen order, we've got plenty of options.
Hungry for delicious dumplings? Humpty’s Dumplings are the perfect bite to hit the spot. From Siu Mai to Har Gow and everything in between, they have you covered. Humpty’s also has a variety of Bao Buns available if you aren’t in the mood for dumplings. Our personal favourites include their Mushroom Bao Buns or their Chicken & Vegetable Xialong Bao. If you’re feeling adventurous and hungry, why not mix and match a few varieties to get a taste of it all!
Craving noodles? That’s exactly what you’ll get from Noodle Street who have been serving up their much-loved Chinese cooking and delicate dim sum to the community for over a decade. Their recipes are rooted in time-honoured family traditions, crafted right here in London using well-sourced produce from the best growers, fishermen and farmers they can find. If you’re in the mood for something warm, we’d recommend their Handmade Wonton Noodle Soup - it’s pretty unbeatable. Alternatively, if you’re craving vegetables, go for their Sweet & Sour Vegetables. Whatever you order, we know you’ll enjoy it!
Momo Canteen offers pan-east Asian casual food from its three locations across London. Their mission is to serve the best treats from the streets in the far east without compromising on value and quality. While they serve up more than just Chinese food, our recommendation for a Chinese-influenced dish would be to go for the Hoisin Roast Duck Momo Street Bowl. If you’re feeling thirsty, why not add a Brown Sugar Milk Bubble Tea to wash it all down!
Keco serves up traditional dishes from all over China. Whether you're looking for BaoZi and dumplings from northern China or MaPo Tofu and Twice Cooked Pork from the souther Sichuan province, they've got it all.
Nusa Kitchen serves healthy, fresh and delicious food with a twist. Inspired by the flavours of South East Asia, it is a family-run eatery serving up hearty soups and delicious rice boxes. We recommend trying one of their delicious rotating soups.
