Food and Celebrations – they go together, don’t they? Here is What Chef Narender and Team have created on Chinese New Year!
Noodles: Long noodles to symbolize long life. Gorge on Soba (buckwheat) noodles,rice flat noodles, glass noodles and many others at Shao.
Chinese tea: The Chinese New Year is a time to offer tea with well wishes and an opportunity to make deeper connections. Sip a cup of Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong or Long Jing Green between courses or all through your meal at Shao
Dumplings: Dumplings are a sign of the family unit and of perfection.Chicken: Chicken is served because it is figured that any family, no matter how humble their circumstances, can afford a chicken for Chinese New Year.
Fish: Is usually eaten or merely displayed on the eve of Chinese New Year. The pronunciation of fish makes it a homophone for "surpluses". A special fish will be prepared and served to the head of the family.
The head of the family portions the
fish for everyone at the table symbolizing the beginning of the meal. However, be careful to leave some of it behind as a sign of surplus for the whole year!
Mandarin oranges: Mandarin oranges are the most popular and most abundant fruit during Chinese New Year and are a homophone of "luck" or "fortune".
These adorn the center of every table at Shao through the Chinese New Year celebrations. celebrate tradition and culture and get a small glimpse of the Chinese way of life.
