Lucky Foods

 Chinese New Year food can be of great significance. Lucky food is served during the 16 day festival but especially on Chinese New Year dinner on New Year's Eve which is believed to bring about good fortune and luck for the coming year. 

Here are some lucky foods and some of their symbolism:

1. Dumplings- fillings have various meaning- (stay away from ones with sauerkraut)

2. Spring Rolls- wealth

3. Good Fortune Fruit- Fullness - some fruits include tangerines and oranges 

4. Noodles- longevity


Check out Gold Belly and order Famous Nom Wah dumplings and siu ma. If you are local to Manhattan or Brooklyn you can also pick up a Lunar New Year dinner from Nom Wah.
