Let’s hear it for a new month full of warm weather, sunny days, good eats, and celebrations! Read on to see what’s in store this June at Sumiao.

What’s Hot: Dragon Boat Festival and Father’s Day

As we enter a new month, we’re already prepping for these two big days. On 6/14, we celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival. From 6/12-6/15 we’ll be selling three kinds of zong zi for both dine-in and online orders. Stay tuned for more information and how you can order. Flavors include plain white/black sticky rice, red bean + white sticky rice, and mushroom pork + white sticky rice.

Up next we’ve got Father’s Day. Celebrate dad with a meal at Sumiao or takeout to go, picnic style! Later this month we’ll share some of the favorite dishes from the fathers here at Sumiao.
