Lunar New Year at Spice Temple

Spice Temple Melbourne rings in Lunar New Year with a feast of auspicious dishes

If ever a New Year needs good luck, it’s 2022 and Spice Temple Melbourne is embracing the Chinese custom of hustling in fortuitous times with a feast of auspicious dishes planned for the Lunar New Year and Year of the Tiger celebrations.

Enjoy a special Chinese banquet menu to celebrate the Year of the Tiger during the 2022 Lunar New Year.

The limited-edition banquet menu has been designed with Chinese food symbolism at the fore: purse-shaped pipis that represent fortune, fish that symbolises life and abundance, eggs that signify fertility, and red ingredients that stand for prosperity and happiness in traditional Chinese culture and the Lunar New Year festivities.
