Update: these events are sold out. 

Phat Eatery has much in store for celebrating Chinese New Year on Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the Year of the Rat and promises wealth and abundance. Phat Eatery is celebrating with an abundance of live entertainment and an incredible eight-course, prix-fixe feast of Malaysian delights served family style. Both a regular and a vegan menu are available; please specify preference when placing reservations. Seats are $38 for adults and $18 for children ages 4 through 12 with seating times at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. There is a two-seat minimum per table; bar seating is also available.

The eight-course menu for meat-eaters includes dishes such as Prosperity Toss-Yu Sheng, a traditional Chinese New Year dish in Malaysia featuring raw salmon (substitution available), pickled carrot, green and white radish, sesame seed, plum sauce, cracker and sesame oil; Coconut Prawns with toasted shredded coconut, oatmeal, chili and curry leaves, and Lamb Rendang with coconut rice, galangal, pandan leaf, potato and turmeric.

The vegan menu  offers Curry Vegetable Casserole filled with king mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, bean curd, green beans, eggplant and tofu, or the Ikan Bakar — vegan “sea bass” grilled with vegetarian sambal in a banana leaf. 

Both menus include dessert: Kuih Kodok with Pulut Hitam Ice Cream (banana fritters with housemade black glutinous rice ice cream) and Roti Canai with Vegan Kaya (housemade vegan kaya — a Malaysian coconut milk sweet jam — and pandan leaf), respectively. Children ages 4 to 12 can order a special menu for $18 that includes pineapple fried rice, chicken stir-fried noodles and a build-your-own ice cream sundae.
