Tao Tao Ju are teaming up with chef Whyte Rushen to create a Lunar New Year pop up special – #WhyteRabbit. 

This Sunday 29th of January Tao Tao Ju will host 150 eager foodies to try pop-up king chef Whyte Rushen’s rabbit inspired menu. The pop up will combine Whyte’s signature flavour, including ‘monster munch’ with Tao Tao Ju’s infamous Dim Sum. 

Staying true to his creative flavour profiles, Whyte has crafted a menu fusing Tao Tao Ju’s authentic Chinese cuisine with his own bold flavours– sure to keep his loyal followers drooling with every bite. Highlights include rabbit sausage sesame toast and chicken feet and monster munch. Guests will also get their hands on a Tao Tao Ju favourite, the jellyfish salad.  

Continue down the rabbit hole and we get to the mains. Known for his outrageous burgers, the smash burger, clay pot rice, torched cheese and brioche is sure to be a showstopper.Or perhaps stick with a Chinese classic sichuan chopped duck with dry chili, century egg glaze and pickled lotus root. 

The one-day take-over by pop-up favourite Whyte Rushen is part of Tao Tao Ju’s wider Lunar New Year celebrations. This includes a bunny trail where customers find the Tao Tao Ju bunny hidden around China Town for a chance to win tickets to this exciting pop up.

Lunar New Year celebrations are usually carried out over 16 days and mark a period of removing the old and welcoming the new. There are several superstitions to which people adhere, such as not washing your hair or lending money during this period. The most important of all is the lucky colour red, which you’ll see brightening the streets on Chinatown over this period.   

The event is at Tao Tao Ju in China Town (15 Lisle Street, London, WC2H 7BE). The menu price is included in the ticket price which is £55. Whyte Rushen also hides his iconic stickers around the location of the pop up (China Town). If you find one and peel it off, you get free entrance to the pop up (sticker teaser videos can be found on Whyte’s stories).
