Double Fifth festival and celebrating Northern Chinese cooking

Posted on June 17, 2016

Double Fifth

The ‘Double Fifth Festival’ is also known by other names such as Duanwu Festival or Dragon Boat Festival, but due to the festival falling on the fifth day of the fifth month in the Chinese calendar, it has gained the popular name of ‘Double Fifth’.

There are various legends about the origins of this festival. The most familiar story is in regards to observing the death of poet Chu Yuan, who drowned on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month in 278 B.C. Dragon boat races are held on this day, symbolic of the attempt to rescue Chu Yuan.

This year the ‘Double Fifth’ festival fell on Thursday 9th June and we marked the occasion by launching a special menu to highlight the five cooking traditions of Northern Chinese cooking – deep-frying, poaching, steaming, stir-frying and braising.

Our menu begins with deep fried Dragon Beard cod dim sum, followed by Classic poached monkfish in lamb broth, Steamed halibut with pickled chilli, Stir-fried ma la beef tenderloin with bell peppers, and Braised lo-han style vegetables.

We are also delighted to be sponsoring this year’s London Dragon Board Race on Sunday 26th June, which coincides with the third anniversary of our restaurant. Entry is free and it is a great day out, so come along and see us there!

Our Double Fifth menu is available until Sunday 3rd July, every lunch, and Monday – Wednesday for dinner. Click here to book.
