Li chun is a date on the Chinese lunar calendar that signifies the beginning of spring. For li chun this year, which occurred on 4 February, friend of A Magazine Nina Ng organised a lou hei lunch to celebrate the festive occasion. The lunch was held in a private room at Black Society restaurant, and guests turned up all dolled up in pink, red, and flowers to match the theme of “Awesome Blossoms”. The lunch counted the lady boss of Black Society, Jun Low, among its attendees, and proved an indulgent treat indeed. That day, seafood played superstar — there was a traditional yusheng that came topped with abalone, individually-served xiao long bao that came swimming in a lip-smackingly delicious lobster broth, and a huge pen cai that comprised all of the best goodies.
