The Year of the Rat is upon us, and to celebrate the Lunar New Year, Ikea in Richmond is bringing back its special dim sum combo meal deal.
While the official Chinese New Year is Jan. 25, festivities begin Jan. 18 at the Swedish furniture superstore, with a traditional lion dance on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 3:30 p.m. at the main entrance. The Coquitlam location will also feature a lion dance on Jan. 18 at 1 p.m., but will not be offering the dim sum deal.
Ikea's dim sum deal also kicks in on Jan. 18, running through Jan. 26 (or while supplies last), and only at the Richmond location.
But back to the dim sum deal... This year Ikea has both upped the price and added more to the combo than last year's popular $8.88 offering. Now $13.88, the Dim Sum Combo includes a barbecue pork bun, sui mai (pork dumpling), vegetarian spring rolls, sticky rice (pork), along with daim cake and pear cider.
Additionally, there's a braised beef stew combo available for $13.88 that is served with daim cake and pear cider.
To get a look at last year's combo, check out this YouTube video from someone who hit up the deal in Richmond to ring in the Year of the Pig.
Bonus: If you are an Ikea Family member, you will receive a red envelope containing a surprise when enjoying one of these meals.
