THE STAR SYDNEY BRINGS AN INTERNATIONAL CELEBRATION OF THE YEAR OF THE OX-FINAL WEEKEND!

Strong, resilient and family-focused: The Star Sydney is set to celebrate 2021 Lunar New Year with spectacular offerings befitting the Year of the Ox.

Live entertainment, opulent dining experiences and mouth-watering special menus will usher in the globally celebrated new beginning from Monday 1 February until Saturday 28 February 2021.

As ongoing restrictions prevent many people from travelling overseas for traditional family celebrations, The Star is poised to become Sydney’s Lunar New Year hub.

The Star Entertainment Group Chief Marketing Officer George Hughes said the iconic venue was thrilled to help guests

and visitors celebrate the auspicious occasion with their family and friends.

Mr Hughes said colourful entertainment and uniquely crafted dishes honoured the important cultural celebration and

infused it with international flair.

“An incredible amount of thought, care and attention has gone into every detail of The Star Sydney’s Lunar New Year

celebration to ensure an authenticity and energy that truly reflects such a significant occasion,” he said.

“Our acclaimed chefs have crafted lavish menus and their talented kitchen teams are preparing to serve a staggering

820kg of scallops, 1200 kgs of lobsters, 12,300 dumplings and 5,200kgs of noodles during the celebration.”

Mr Hughes said grand Lunar New Year celebrations cemented The Star as the premier destination in Sydney to play, stay and dine.

CHUUKA | 1 February – 28 February

CHUUKA Co-Executive Chef Victor Liong has drawn from his Chinese Malay roots to craft a CHUUKA Style Yu Sang Salad, stamping his personal touch on the traditional celebratory dish.

The shared meal ($68) heroes green lip abalone, complemented by the irresistible flavour punches of traditional and contemporary ingredients including pomelo, summer mango, green papaya and pickled ginger.

“Yu Sang translates to Prosperity Toss Salad and is a fun and tasty dish symbolising abundance, prosperity and vigour,” Victor explained.
