The Best Chinese New Restaurant Deals from the Best Dining Club

When you think of Chinese New Year, you may think of firecrackers and the traditional lion dances in your local Chinatown but it’s so much more than that. Originally a ceremonial day to pray to the gods for a good harvest, the Chinese New Year has evolved in one of the world’s great festivals. London may claim to be the biggest Chinese New Year festival outside of Southeast Asia, but it’s celebrated by more than 20% of the world’s population with Korea and Vietnam also celebrating the Lunar New Year. The most important part of the Chinese New Year is the homecoming meal on New Year’s Eve so let’s look at the best Chinese New Year food to try with tastecard dining out deals.

The Best Chinese New Year Food to Eat

Dining out with tastecard at a Chinese restaurant is always cheaper than eating out with any restaurant voucher. So, you have no excuse not to indulge during Chinese New Year. But what should you eat to celebrate this great Chinese festival?

Dumplings are deemed lucky foods to eat during Chinese New Year and people eat them for every meal including breakfast and especially for the New Year’s Eve dinner. However, dumplings are more popular in Northern China and Chinese people from the South prefer lucky foods like spring rolls or tangyuan (glutinous rice balls in soup). Sound good to you? Make sure you eat out at a local Chinese restaurant during the Chinese New Year and use your tastecard dining club discounts when you’re doing it. If you have a great Chinese meal, why not tag @tastecard on Instagram using #tastecardit.
