Almost all the tables at the Shanghai Garden Chinese Restaurant have been booked for the Chinese New Year’s Eve on January 25. Restaurant manager Kaley Liu said: “All our round tables have been reserved in the VIP room and most of our tables outside have also been booked for the Chinese New Year Eve. The Chinese believe that a family should eat at a round table during the New Year,” said Kaley Liu, restaurant manager. Liu said the restaurant has been busy preparing traditional Chinese dishes which will be based on a menu written in Chinese. The dishes will range from salads, appetizers, soup, seafood, vegetables and dessert. “Of course, our menu includes the dumplings. It’s traditional for the Chinese to eat dumplings on New Year’s Eve. We will also serve fish. It’s part of our tradition to serve fish on this day for good luck. Peking Duck will be included on the menu,” she said. The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year, is the festival traditionally celebrated on the first day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as Chúx.
