Chinese New Year Miami Roundup 2019

Kung Hei Fat Choy! Pick from 5 of my fav restaurants to celebrate Year of the Pig, some with Special Menus and Lion Dance. ENJOY!! 

The Year of the Pig starts TUESDAY, February 5 and festivities last 2 weeks.  Since I’m not organizing a Chinese New Year gathering this year, I’ve put together a list of Chinese/Asian restaurants celebrating Year of the Pig so you can experience it.

You can catch me on Facebook Live talking Chinese New Year with Linda Gassenheimer on Food News & Views and get tips for a Simple Skirt Stir Fry! We continued with a radio interview on 880thebiz, hear it as a podcast!

So, what’s the significance of Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year is a time to spend with family and friends and celebrate LIFE! My mom used to cook for days, there was one of everything, so duck, beef, pork, shrimp, you get the drift. The whole table would be filled, it was our favorite time of the year, what a feast for the eyes and tummy. And we got red packets filled with money when we visited our cousins or friends.

Chinese New Year gives you another chance to wipe the slate clean and start over if you’ve fallen off the wagon with your New Year resolution. It’s an opportunity to kick old habits and start new ways of doing things that bring you happiness.

If you’re superstitious like me and don’t want to chance it, here are a few things I do…
• No sweeping on New Year’s Day or you’ll sweep away good luck, great excuse for no housework.
• Wear red or gold or both and eat things like Dumplings, wontons or gyozas resemble gold ingots. They signify Prosperity, Longevity, Good Luck and Happiness.

Find out Pig traits, compatibility, predictions of fame and fortune and celebrities who are Pigs.

And now for the roundup of 5 of my fav Miami restaurants celebrating Chinese New Year, contact them to find out about menus etc. and order some of those good luck foods.  Do call them PRIOR to going to reserve and check for Lion Dance appearances to avoid disappointment, I’m just the messenger.

One-night-only 4-course tasting menu.  Chef Pablo Zitzmann will be serving dishes like “the Crudo Yusheng that is a really celebratory dish. We got a red braised pork belly that is eaten during Chinese New Year for wealth, long Lo Mein Noodles for longevity and whole roasted fish for a good start and end of the year.”
