Oriental Teahouse to launch Beyond Meat dumplings and more for World Vegan Day

Limited-edition dumplings, yum cha classes and so much more

Modern yum cha specialists Oriental Teahouse are gearing up for World Vegan Day on Friday, 1 November with the launch of three new-look vegan dumplings inspired by menu favourites, including a limited-edition Beyond Meat dumpling that is sure to delight vegans and dumpling-lovers alike.


Made 100% vegan, discover the authentic chilli wagyu taste of Oriental Teahouse’s new Beyond Meat ‘beef’ dumpling – available for only one week, the menu favourite is given a vegan update with its surprise ingredient not yet widely used in dumplings.


The other limited-edition vegan dishes include a plant-based ‘beef’ shredded steak in a sticky sweet chilli sauce served up with string beans and sesame seeds, and a plant-based ‘chicken’ and shallot wonton with wood ear mushroom, sesame and bamboo in a spring onion dressing. All three dishes will be available to order at all Oriental Teahouse locations between 1 November and 8 November for extended World Vegan Day celebrations.


Those in need of a plant-based yum cha fix can also head to Oriental Teahouse on Little Collins Street on World Vegan Day, where yum cha sessions that evening (5.30pm and 7.30pm) will only include the 15 plant-based menu items already available across venues. The sessions will also feature the limited-edition vegan dumplings to help celebrate the plant-based yum cha experience on offer.


Bookings are encouraged through the website or over the phone, but walk-ins at the Little Collins venue are also welcome.


Oriental Teahouse is a household name that provides a world-class teahouse experience that is authentically Chinese but with a modern twist. The space encompasses a day-to-night culinary experience that does not sacrifice the essence of a traditional Chinese teahouse.
