Even if you don't have a reason for celebration this Sunday, NOA's Yum Cha lunch is seriously worth your attention.

Think sriracha chilli caramel short rib beef, spring onion pancakes, Shanghai pork and prawn dumplings ... and that's not even half of it.  

$65pp or $25pp for kids. We're told the last yum cha event sold out extremely early, so book in quick!

NOA's sister restaurant, Guerrilla, is also throwing something special for Father's Day. 

Its Baja California Mexican feast is all things braised goat tacos, duck leg carnitas, pork rind with mole verde ... basically lots of meat. Like most good Mexican. 

$60pp or $25pp for kids. Limited bookings left.
