With a April’s weather leaving much to be desired, we are looking forward to a May filled with sunshine, spritzes and specials. Here is what we have in store for you this month:
SPRITZES & CAIPIRINHAS
We are spotlighting two of the world’s most celebrated spirits in our monthly cocktail specials: baijiu and caćhaça.
Strawberry-Baijiu Spritz – $12:
Although rare in the United States, baijiu is the most widely consumed spirit in the world making this twist on a spritz a must-try spring sip. With the unexpected spike of the baijiu incorporated, we’re taking it one shake further by replacing the typical white or rosé wine with a plum wine. The base liquors are rounded out by the subtle sweetness of lychee, housemade strawberry puree and ginger liqueur that is finished with soda water and served in festive tiki glassware.
Rosemary Caipirinha – $9:
Taking further inspiration from the top cocktail cities in the world, our second feature is the Rosemary Caipirinha. The national cocktail of Brazil, caipirinhas incorporate caćhaça which is the most common distilled alcoholic beverage in the South American country. Our take on this classic blends fresh lime, homemade rosemary syrup and caćhaça that is shaken vigorously and strained into a glass of ice and garnished with a fragrant rosemary sprig.
Cheers to spring!

MOTHER’S DAY | May 13th
Although mom deserves our utmost appreciation and love every day, Mother’s Day is a chance for you to go that extra mile and spoil her like the queen she is. Treat your mom to an afternoon in Hunan, sans passport, and at the end of the meal, we will send over a special pink rose bao dessert with red bean paste filling. Sweets for your sweet.
Chef Hua, our star female chef who is mom to twins, recommends ordering some bubbles and pairing them with our springtime specialties like the Sumiao Cajun-style scallops, duck yolk-breaded crispy shrimp or pan-seared yellow croaker. The tastes of the season shine in these creations, just like the star mom is!
Our patio, situated in the heart of Kendall Square, has your seat waiting any time. A perfect respite for getting in some Vitamin D during your lunch break or as an urban oasis by-night, we serve our full menus al fresco in a social setting.
Let’s face it: sometimes cooking can be a real drag. But that’s where we come in and make you look good! We have decided to extend our 10%-off takeout orders promotion through the end of the year so when you’re in a jam or just need a night off from the kitchen, place your order via phone or online and enjoy authentic Hunanese home-cooking in the comfort of your home.
Whether hosting an intimate graduation dinner, a champagne-laced bridal shower or a springtime company outing, our restaurant is outfitted with spaces for every occasion. From 24-252 people, we curate an event experience that is unmatched and unforgettable. For more information, email email@example.com or fill out the contact form on our home page.
