SOULed OUT will be pulling out all the stops to commemorate Chinese New Year across all its outlets with traditionally themed food and beverage promotions until 28th February 2018. During this period, families will get the chance to ‘Loh Sang’ with friends and enjoy varied ‘Yee Sang’ deals starting as low as RM23 per portion.
Not forgetting the SOULed OUT brand’s own tradition of serving up hearty portions of delicious food that bring people back for more, the Chinese New Year Snack Plate will be available for RM18 and includes season favourites like chicken ‘siew mai’, ‘wantans’ and ‘money bags’, as well as steamed prawn dumplings and fried ‘mantau’. In a modern twist that nonetheless pays homage to the festival’s origins, the Chinese New Year cocktail of the month, the Mandarin Orange Mojito, is also now available at RM21.
Another symbol of the strong ties between family and friends, thematic of the season, is of course the observance of Chap Goh Mei, which marks the end of the Chinese New Year festival. While this tradition has evolved over recent years, the spirit of openness, generosity and abundance persists in cultural observances such as the seasonal decorations, ‘tang yuen’ or glutinous rice balls served in syrup to polish off multi-course Chap Goh Mei dinners and of course, the gifting of mandarin oranges.
To celebrate the formation and renewal of ties, SOULed OUT will host Chap Goh Mei in a spectacular fashion and everyone is welcome to share in the tradition and togetherness. All SOULed OUT outlets will shout CNY ambiance as firecrackers herald a special visit by ‘Choi Sun’, the God of Prosperity and his lucky lions. By taking part in giant ‘Loh Sang’ ceremonies, as firecrackers are lit to ward off bad luck, guests can attempt to improve their fortunes in the coming lunar year by touching the robes of the God of Prosperity or by petitioning lion dancers for oranges as they go around bringing ‘Ong’ (luck) and ‘Fatt’ (prosperity) to all 5 SOULed OUT outlets.
