Fugetsu toast the Lunar New Year with their ever popular happy hour between 4-7pm with Sapporo beers at $4, or Japanese plum wines or Sake.
Traditionally soba noodles are eaten during Japanese celebrations, as the noodles are long and symbolise a long life. Eating the noodles that Fugetsu have introduced, including Mini Cold Zaru Soba & Kakiage noodles, represent your wish for a continued long life in the new year. It is also very common to find prawns in New Year’s menu. Sometimes they are large and whole, as tempura, or peeled. The scampi or prawn is also said to be for longevity, much like many things found in a New Year’s dish.
You’ll be spoiled for choice at Fugetsu and be tempted with Tempura Udon, Scampi & Prawn Delight, Scampi Sashimi, Scampi Sushi and more….
