Your go-to guide to eating Yum Cha during Lunar New Year

Despite the fact we love eating yum cha year round, we just can’t let the Lunar New Year celebrations pass without delving into one of our favourite foodie experiences. From succulent duck, to prawn dumplings, fried squid and sweet egg tarts – seriously, who doesn’t love getting their chopsticks into all different kinds of dim sum.

In the Cantonese-speaking regions of China, feasting on dim sum is typical for family get-togethers, milestones and special celebrations, and Lunar New Year celebrations is also one of them. Sunnybank has a vast choice when it comes to feasting on dim sum. So gather your friends and make that booking at these yum cha hotspots and kick-off the year of the ox with an incredible feast.

Yum cha at Landmark is a must-have Sunnybank experience. The Chinese restaurant constantly pulls a crowd of hungry hoards across Brisbane who are eager to delve into it’s huge array of dim sum. There are over 100 different types of dim sum and we guarantee that your curiosity will peak everytime the wait staff bring a trolley with bamboo baskets filled with dumplings. Our fave? We always order their Shanghai pork dumplings – these tantalising dumplings are made from paper-thin dough skin that is filled with perfectly seasoned pork filling and hot, flavourful soup. When you take a bite, the soup fills your mouth to create a dreamy texture.
