WeChat Version in Chinese:

Happy Chinese New Year!

2022 is a Year of the Tiger! People born in these years are confident, brave, competitive, hard-working, and fierce. Their lucky colors are blue and green, lucky numbers are 1, 3, and 7, and their lucky flower is the plum blossom.
As our tradition, here at Sumiao we’re celebrating by handing out red envelopes filled with money and enjoying some lucky foods with our guests. At Chinese New Year Eve, each dine-in guest will receive a red envelope and each takeout order will receive one too!

Celebrate the New Year with Delicious Food

Food is a always a huge part of our celebrations and traditions. Last year we ceelbrated with a variety of yummy dishes like:
1. Duck Yolk Breaded Gold Pumpkin Fortune Pork Shank
2. Ox Year Family Reunion Delight Spicy Kung Fu Chicken
3. Spicy Starlight Calamari Roll Happy Ox B Steak

We’re still in the planning phase of our dishes for CNY 2022, so stay tuned for our next newsletter and social media where we’ll reveal something tasty!

Baijiu Food Pairings

Baijiu, roughly pronounced as bye-joe, is one of our favorite Chinese liquors that can easily be paired with many of our menu offerings. We proudly serve several Baijiu cocktails and love that it is the #1 best-selling liquor in the WORLD! Can you believe that? Because of this wonderful spirit, we’ve also participated in World Baijiu Day for the past three years. If you haven’t tried Baijiu, now’s your chance to try a cocktail with the perfect food pairing.
1.Perpetual Motion (baijiu, blood orange, elderflower, mint, lime) – For a cocktail with a touch of bitterness but one that’s also refreshing, we love a rich dish like our La Rou with Mushrooms (house-smoked hunan bacon, fresno pepper)
2. Pyroclastic Punch (baijiu, hibiscus, passion fruit, lemon) – For this fruity cocktail, we love something spicy, like our Nom Numb Wings.
3. Ice Cold Fusion (baijiu, cognac, cointreau, lemon) – This enchanting cocktail pairs well with many a refresshign desserts like our sweet tofu pudding.
