Meet you at the Bā!

Fairmont, The Palm’s swish Chinese eatery Bā is going all out this year in order that you may bring in the New Year as authentically as possible.

From today until February 21, a menu packed full of regional Chinese delicacies and traditions awaits. These include serving Lo Hei (or Yee Sang) to each individual table allowing guests to toast good health, happiness and prosperity. Lo Hei stems from the Chinese phrase “tossing up good fortune” and this noodle salad symbolises an abundance of good wealth and a long life with its fresh feel. It is believed that the higher you toss the salad, the longer your luck will last. If you’re a fan of immersive cuisine, this is definitely the dish for you. A load of ingredients in a big bowl in the middle, two chopsticks each and the chance to just dive in and mix it all up. Good fun and it tastes excellent too. A real melange of flavours the most prominent of which are citrus and sweet.

After the huge salad has been cleared away it’s your chance to get onboard the Chinese New Year set menu. This feast includes a variety of specialties from the Bā kitchen, with Sashimi salmon and dried scallop soup with stir-fried Chinese duck sausage with Asian greens among the favourites.

As ever with Bā, if you don’t order the duck pancakes there must be something wrong with you. They are delicious and made fresh at a portable station right next to your table. The dim sum, fried rice and crispy beef is also a decent bet. 

As the year of the goat has come back round, Bā will also offer a complimentary beverage in Bā Lounge for those born in 1991, 1979, 1967,1955, and 1943 (or if you’re older than that).

This is definitely the top pick for tomorrow’s festivities. Try it out.
