Top 5 Chinese Restaurants In London

Dragon Boat Festival – one of the three most important Chinese Holidays, together with Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival – falls on the 2 June (the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese lunar calendar).

Also known as the Double Fifth or Duanwu festival, the event commemorates the death of Chinese poet, Qu Yuan, who lept into the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month in 277 B.C with a stone attached to his ankle.

Local people admired the poet so deeply that they took to the water to save him, in their boats. Unable to located Qu Yuan’s body, the Chinese dropped balls of sticky rice into the water so that the fish could eat the rice rather than the poet’s body.

Today Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated by tucking into zongzi (sticky rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves) and racing dragon boats.

Fast forward to 2014 and fortunately – for the capital’s veggie contingent – it’s all change. London has followed in the footsteps of other cosmopolitan cities of cool such as Sydney, New York and LA and exploded with designated, upscale veggie eateries and raw food restaurants. All of whom serve up some of the most delicious dishes (sans meat) imaginable, helping to dispel the stereotype that veggie dining is Spartan and dull.
