Ring in the Chinese New Year with festive lineup from Rustan’s

Chinese New Year is upon us once again, and Rustan’s is pulling out all the stops to commemorate the dawn of a fresh chapter. Symbolizing the turning of a new leaf and the coming of Spring, the beginning of a new year in the Chinese calendar is an occasion met with grand festivities and high hopes. Riding this energy, Rustan’s is ushering in the Year of the Pig with limited-time offers and gift-worthy finds.

Lion dance

Kicking the year off on a joyous note, Rustan’s is all set to mark the occasion with lion dances in all branches across the country. The lion, symbolic of power and wisdom in Chinese culture, is believed to chase away evil spirits and attract good luck through the traditional performance. Get 2019 started on the right foot on February 3, 2019 at Rustan’s Gateway (12:30 – 1:30 PM), Rustan’s Shangri-La (1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.), Rustan’s Cebu (4 – 5 p.m. ), Rustan’s Makati (4:30 – 5:30 p.m.), or Rustan’s Alabang (4 – 5:30 p.m.).

East Cafe offers

Special Menu

From January 28 to February 28, a celebratory Chinese New Year menu will be made available at select East Cafe branches in the metro. Whisking diners away on a whirlwind of delectable flavors, the menu includes East Asian favorites like Xinjiang Skewers, Peking Style Pork Chop, and the classic Pork Stir Fry — elevated to a delicate flavor with chive flowers. Also on the menu: Crispy Champon Noodles with Pork and Shitake, and a platter with a little taste of everything: Pork and Shrimp Wanton, Steamed Pork in Black Beans, and Steamed Pork Buns.

These Chinese New Year offerings will be available in East Cafe locations in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Gateway and Rustan’s Shangri-la.

Koi Tikoy pre-order

Tikoy, a sticky traditional rice cake also known as nian gao, is believed to increase prosperity and unite one’s family for the year to come. Similar in sound to the Mandarin words for “higher year,” eating one’s fair share of tikoy to ring in the New Year is attributed to achieving greater heights. Available in a limited-edition special shape of a Koi fish in regular flavor and for a limited time, pre-order yours at East Cafe in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Gateway, and Rustan’s Shangri-La.

A 50-percent downpayment is required to secure pre-order reservation. Contact East Cafe at (02) 812 0233 for more details.
