Celebrate the Year of the Ox with a charitable mission
2021 Dining for the Feast of Fortune offers exclusive menus and gift ideas for the Lunar New Year

Celebrating the Lunar New Year cannot be without a sumptuous feast. Since 2015, Chinese Restaurant Awards (CRA) has been showcasing culinary excellence at the annual Scotiabank Feast of Fortune event for St. Paul’s Foundation. This year, CRA and St. Paul’s Foundation wish to take this fundraiser to the next level by inviting the dining public to participate in this unique and first-of-its-kind dining series to celebrate the Lunar New Year with a meaningful mission.

2021 DINING for the Feast of Fortune is an unprecedented culinary experience that offers a delicate, refined and carefully curated vision of the Lunar New Year celebration. CRA has formed a culinary alliance with ten top-notch and generous Metro Vancouver eateries to raise funds for the new St. Paul’s at the Jim Pattison Medical Centre.

“Lunar New Year celebrations signify a farewell to the old and a welcome to the new. The year of 2020 has really highlighted the significane of health care and the importance of advancing life science and technology for the future. Bracing through the pandemic has been a humbling experience. Whether it be local restaurants’ perseverance or the dining public’s heartfelt support for the industry, the simple act of dining out or ordering takeout has transformed into uplifting stories that brings our community together. Therefore, 2021 DINING for the Feast of Fortune is the perfect opportunity with the right timing to connect these eateries’ dedication and generosity with the dining public’s enthusiastic participation over the course of this Lunar New Year, for the charitable cause of fundraising for the new St. Paul’s,” said Craig Stowe, President of Chinese Restaurant Awards.

The Feast will begin on February 8, 2021

2021 DINING for the Feast of Fortune’s dining series will commence from February 8 to February 26(Updated end date of dining series from February 21 to February 26), which will be situated right around the Lunar New Year, offering plenty of time and flexibility for diners to participate, whether for a New Year’s Eve dinner, a New Year’s Day feast, or whenever they please. Six award-winning restaurants (Bamboo Grove Restaurant, Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine, Heritage Asian Eatery, Po Kong Vegetarian Restaurant, The Fish Man and Torafuku) and two emerging restaurants (Joy Café and Hotpot Palace) will join force in presenting Vancouver’s deliciously diverse culinary delights, such as Cantonese fine dining, Northern Chinese, Sichuan, Pan Asian, hot pot, vegetarian, Hong Kong-style casual dishes and more. These exclusive “Feast of Fortune” lunch and dinner menus are designed by chefs and teams to elevate the Year of the Ox celebration with special regards to the well-being of the dining public and their loved ones.

Culinary delicacies include Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine’s Braised Seafood Bird’s Nest Soup, which features the extravagant edible bird-nest in a rich and savoury soup. The Fish Man’s BC Dungeness Crab and Seafood Rice symbolizes an abundance of wealth and joy in the new year. Heritage Asian Eatery’s popular Peking duck two-course comes with some brand new creations, such as Abalone Siu Mai and Golden Garlic and Black Bean Steamed BC Oysters, which adds a golden sparkle of joy to the new year’s blessings. For an all-rounded celebration of the Year of the Ox, Hotpot Palace’s sumptuous feast begins with Roasted Bone Marrow, while the hotpot comes with a Red Wine Infused Tomato Oxtail Soup Base, alongside with thick slices of selected Angus Beef, Handmade Cheese Beef Meatballs, and much more.

The dining public is encouraged to make reservations or order take-out for these exclusive menus at participating eateries. The dining series menu prices range from $38-$100 CAD per person, and the restaurants will donate $25 CAD for each “Feast of Fortune” menu served.

Diners can also support by purchasing gift certificates for their family and friends. These restaurants will also donate $25 CAD for each $100 CAD gift certificate ordered. These gift certificates will expire on May 31st, 2021, which allows ample opportunities for diners to explore more of the restaurants’ delicious offerings, even after the duration of the dining series.

Gourmet gifts for the New Year

Gifting has been a Lunar New Year tradition to show love and appreciation for friends, family, and of course, for yourself. DINING for the Feast of Fortune has curated the Gifts of Fortune to further support our fundraising mission, of which pre-ordering will be from January 18th. Chinese Restaurant Awards’ Limited Edition – Premium Artisan XO Sauce is handmade by Executive Chef Cao Can Hui of the award-winning Dynasty Seafood Restaurant. They are priced at $35 for each 6.7oz jar, and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the new St. Paul’s. As the XO sauce can be the perfect companion for almost every dish at the table, the Gift of Fortune also comes with a touch of French suave; the Year of the OX Macaron Special Edition Set by Pastry Chef Eric Ho of Little Fox Bakehouse is another fantastic gift idea. They are priced at $16 per box, and $3 of each box will be donated to the new St. Paul’s.
