The year of the rabbit is almost upon us (goodbye year of the tiger, go sleep it off), and the festivities are starting to pick up. 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 cute hungry bunny.

From Wednesday, January 18–Sunday, February 5, dumpling master Din Tai Fung is offering new limited edition chocolate and Biscoff rabbit buns and, like the chain's usual annual Lunar New Year special, they're ridiculously cute. They're buns with little rabbit faces, and they're even eating carrots — how could they be anything other than adorable?

Din Tai Fung is famous for its dumplings, and is known to release eye-catching novelty varieties for special occasions (check out these adorable little monkey buns from 2016, pig bao from 2019, masked ox buns from 2021 and tiger buns from 2022). The new rabbit buns are stuffed with a sweet filling of chocolate and Biscoff crumbs, which oozes out when you squeeze them.

The tiger buns are available for $9.80 for two 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, Martin Place and Marrickville venues. In Melbourne, you have one spot to head to, with the buns on offer at Emporium Melbourne.

They're also available frozen for delivery both separately (for $13.50 for three) — also from Wednesday, January 18.

The only problem we can foresee with the cute Din Tai Fung dish? Eating those sweet little rabbit faces may be hard… but we're sure you'll manage it.

Chocolate and Biscoff rabbit buns are available from Din Tai Fung's stores in Sydney and Melbourne, and also via delivery, from Wednesday, January 18–Sunday, February 5. Head to the chain's website for further details or to order.
