Chinese New Year may feel a little different this year, so we’re here to help you bring that festive cheer to your home instead. Give the kids some chopsticks and toss that Yee Sang salad high up in the air… What a great way to celebrate the start of the Year of the Ox!

Yee Sang is symbolic of good luck, prosperity, health and all things ox-picious. The higher you toss the salad, the more luck you will bring upon your family.

Where to order for delivery or takeaway? Have a look at our listicle! We’ve not only listed Yee Sang sets, but of course other CNY dishes as well that are available for ordering now. Have a look and if you can’t make up your mind: most venues have got their fabulous foods available until the last day of the month.
