Chinese New Year Galway Re Tea

Sample Some Chinese Street Food

If you wanted something a bit more substantial, you could head to RÉ TEA on Quay Street for a quick lunch this Chinese New Year. Their Jianbing is one of China’s most famous street food specialties: a thin and crispy pancake, like a crepe - but better! They are served with a choice of slow-cooked duck, beef, or a veg. For something sweeter, they have the Nutella and Strawberry Jianbing or simply drizzled with lemon and sugar...

Chinese New Year Xin Gin

Toast The New Year with Xin Gin

Designed to be at the heart of gatherings, Xin Gin’s founders Michelle and Gareth McAllister have Irish blood and Asian hearts. After spending many years in Asia, they wanted to merge what they loved about their two homes. The word itself means ‘heart’ or ‘feelings’ in Mandarin. The design of the bottle, with ancient celtic swirls contrasted with a modern Eastern aesthetic reflects the liquid inside – a perfect balance of European and Oriental botanicals. The cross shaped label represents a promise to stay connected and a crossing point of the two cultures they love. Xin Gin has won ‘Best in Ireland’ at The Gin Guide Awards; Gold at the International Wine & Spirits Competition; Bronze at the World Gin Awards 2022 for Best Contemporary Irish Gin and Silver for Best Design, so we reckon it's the perfect tipple the toast the Year of the Rabbit!
