Bun expert Bao has created a special menu to ring in Chinese New Year this weekend. From Friday 20th January to Sunday 5th February, groups of six or more can book the private dining rooms at the King’s Cross and Shoreditch restaurants for a themed set menu (£39pp). You’ll start with boiled cull yaw dumplings, soy-glazed aubergine, and Taiwanese fried chicken before moving onto mains of scarlet cha shao gammon, roasted pumpkin with tofu and chives, and plenty of pork bao buns. Then, to honour this year’s animal, it’s sweet buns shaped into rabbits for dessert.
