Celebrate Chinese New Year at Yauatcha

Should you ever need a reason to dine at Michelin-starred Chinese dim sum teahouse Yauatcha (and let’s be honest, you'd be a fool to think about it for very long), we have one for you here now. Yauatcha has been getting in the seasonal spirit and teamed up with luxury retail brand, Harvey Nichols, to welome in the Chinese New Year (31 January).

This new year we enter the Year of the Horse – brought to life with an elaborate window and restaurant display of red origami perspex and paper horses. Inspired by the Chinese tradition of spreading luck by giving gifts to each of your friends and family, each guest at Yauatcha will receive a red envelope containing vouchers for fashion and beauty treats, along with a bespoke Chinese New Year cocktail, until 10 February,

If that’s not tempting enough, eight special golden tickets will be given to guests at random, containing lavish prizes such as meals and cocktail masterclasses at Yauatcha and makeovers at Harvey Nichols.

If you are finding that your new year budget is not stretching as far as you would like however, you can still enjoy some of Yauatcha’s chef mastery with a drop in at their patisserie counter. Hakkasan group’s executive pastry chef, Graham Hornigold, has created bespoke macarons and petits gateaux, which will be added to the existing array of award-winning sweets. The limited edition flavours include:

Red Macarons; filled with mandarin ganache and mandarin pâte de fruit. (£1.60 each, £9 per 6 pieces, £18 per 12 pieces)

Red Petits Gateaux; a jasmine mousse filled with a honey panna cotta centre, with caramelised mandarins and sesame brittle, all created in the shape of a traditional Chinese New Year lantern. (£5.90 (retail), £8.50 (a la carte))

Happy new Year of the Horse to you all!
