The Lunar New Year is almost here, celebrated by a variety of Asian cultures. With Australia being the melting pot we know and love, the festivities in Sydney can be enjoyed by everyone.
2019 is the Year of the Pig, so I struggle to think of a better time to celebrate the way everyone loves best: eating. Satisfy that hunger and hit up these spots to ring in the new Lunar Year the right way.
