Noodles and gelato might be strange bedfellows, but the teams at Piccolina and Lagoon Dining see them as perfect pairs. To prove it, they're hosting a one-off Lunar New Year Lunch on Saturday, February 10, to welcome in the Year of the Dragon, during which diners will chase hand-made noodles with freshly churned scoops of gelato.

For a modest $35, you'll get a bowl of cold sesame noodles served with chargrilled chicken, black vinegar and crispy soybeans, a scoop of one of the limited-edition Luna New Year gelatos (made by Piccolina and Lagoon Dining) and a fruity soda.

Some of the six experimental gelato flavours will include a jackfruit, grapefruit and lime sorbet filled with coconut jellies; a creamy banana gelato with butterscotch ganache; a mango sorbet with lychee jellies; and a jasmine tea gelato with orange, caramelised figs and toasted walnuts. The flavour combos come courtesy of Lagoon Dining chefs, who are known for playfully blending Malaysian and Chinese cuisines.

But if you can't make it to the Lunar New Year lunch, keep your cool. The gelatos will be available at all Piccolina stores from Wednesday, February 7­ until Tuesday, February 27. It's perfect timing, as Melbourne is finally starting to heat up, and February is set to be a scorcher.
