For extra social distancing and fun, Deliveroo has partnered with popular Chinese restaurants to bring you extra long Lo Hei chopsticks!
Thanks to Deliveroo, you can usher in Lunar New Year with your family without compromising on either safety or tradition. The delivery service has partnered with Soup Restaurant and Kimly Seafood to create extra long Lo Hei chopsticks for the Year of the Tiger.
Lo Hei, which means ‘tossing up good fortune’ in Cantonese, is one of the biggest highlights during Chinese New Year (1 February), where families and friends come together to toss symbolic yusheng ingredients while reciting auspicious phrases — it is believed that the higher the toss, the better the abundance and prosperity in the year ahead.
While social distancing is still the norm for gatherings, these measures don’t have to dampen this year’s much-anticipated celebrations.
The Deliveroo extra long Lo Hei chopsticks span a whopping 43cm, about twice the length of a standard chopstick, and aims to help usher in the Lunar New Year while maintaining a responsible distance from loved ones. Each pair features a colourful design in red and orange for a prosperous year, alongside fun illustrations of mandarins and tigers to highlight the festive traditions of the season and the arrival of the Year of the Tiger.
