From Feb. 1 to 5 – or while stock lasts – IKEA restaurant diners can try a dim sum combo or, on Feb. 3, take in a lion dance and receive a lucky red envelope.

The dim sum combo includes pork siu mai, a steamed BBQ pork bun, a vegetable spring roll, fried noodles with mixed vegetables and a fortune cookie for $8.88. Sticky rice, wonton soup and additional spring rolls can be included for additional cost.

On Feb. 3, visitors can celebrate with a lion dance at 1 p.m., which will include a traditional Chinese drum and presentation of lucky red envelopes which could have a gift card, coupon or treat inside.
