Din Tai Fung Is Making Adorable Ox Buns for Lunar New Year
They're filled will molten chocolate — and you can enjoy them in-store and as part of the chain's Lunar New Year hamper to eat at home.
We rang in the year of the ox (goodbye year of the rat, go sleep it off) on February 12, but the festivities are continuing throughout the month. And what's the best way to partake in the celebration? We've got it right here and it'll make you happier than a hungry bullock.
Din Tai Fung is famous for its dumplings and is known to release beautiful and novelty dumplings for special occasions (check out these adorable little monkey buns from 2016 and pig bao from 2019). The ox buns are filled with a sweet filling of molten chocolate, which oozes out when you squeeze them. And, in line with the times, they're decked out with little masks — because of course they are.
The ox buns are available at Din Tai Fung restaurants and food court outlets in Sydney, so you'll want to hit up its World Square, Westfield Chatswood, Westfield Miranda, Westfield Sydney, Broadway Shopping Centre, Gateway Sydney, The Star, Greenwood Plaza and MLC Centre venues. In great news for Melburnians under lockdown, they're also available for delivery via Deliveroo — and in the chain's big frozen Lunar New Year hampers, which you can get brought to your door.
The only problem we can foresee with the cute Din Tai Fung dish? Eating those sweet little pig faces may be hard… but we'll probably manage it.
Masked Ox Buns are available for $8.80 for two at Din Tai Fung's World Square, Westfield Chatswood, Westfield Miranda, Westfield Sydney, Broadway Shopping Centre, Gateway Sydney, The Star, Greenwood Plaza and MLC Centre stores. They're also available via Deliveroo — and, in Melbourne, in the chain's frozen Lunar New Year hampers, which cost $98 .
