Three restos to satisfy your cravings for Chinese cuisine for the New Year

Let’s eat our way to a long and successful life.

The cultural celebration of the Chinese New Year represents the start of a new year based on the lunisolar calendar which falls on January 25.

It’s traditionally celebrated in China, Korea, and Vietnam as well as countries with significant Chinese populations like Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Food plays a key role during these festivities, as many Chinese families will cook traditional dishes that incorporate ingredients believed to bring them luck, prosperity, and longevity in the coming year.

Although cooking, in the 21st century, has always been a go-to option nowadays; we’re here to help you give a run-down on the best Chinese restaurants in the city for your convenience. Trust us, you can say xiexie for days.
