Auspicious dishes usher in the Year of the Metal Rat

Festivities will commence with the traditional Lion Dance performance which is believed to bring good luck and fortune. Accompanied by the music of beating drums, pounding gongs and clashing cymbals, dancers imitate the lion’s movements to bring prosperity and scare-off evil spirits. Guests enjoying the Chinese New Year buffet will have front row seats to the Lion Dance.

The Chinese New Year buffet prepared by F1 Hotel Manila’s award-winning culinary team will feature special Chinese dishes such as the Yee Sang, a prosperity salad that symbolizes abundance and vigor tossed for good luck; Dong Po Pork Knuckle, pan-fried braised pork flavored with secret Chinese spices; Duck Wrap pancakes with hoisin sauce; Suckling Pig; and Tang Yuan, sweet glutinous rice balls with a hint of ginger which may remind diners of local ginataan but with a twist.

Fortune cookies will also be handed out at the hotel lobby and restaurant so that guests can learn their prophecy for the coming year.

To complete the Chinese New Year ambiance at F All-Day Dining, a legendary Money Tree will be placed at the foyer of the restaurant to bring money and good fortune to everyone who rubs it.
