shape, symbolizing family unity, completeness and happiness. It is made with sticky rice flour filled with sweet stuffing and served in syrup water.

Lettuce Wraps – The Cantonese word for lettuce sounds like “rising fortune,” so it is common to serve lettuce wraps filled with other lucky food. To turn this into an even more symbolic dish, dried oysters are substituted for the chicken meat, as dried oyster sounds like the word for "good."

Steamed Whole Fish – The word for fish, "Yu," sounds like the words both for “wish” and “plentiful” in Chinese. Serving a fish at the end of the meal symbolizes a wish for abundance in the coming year.

Lion’s Head Meatballs – This visually appealing dish from Shanghai consists of oversized meatballs with bok choy "manes." In Chinese culture, the lion represents power and strength, while the meatballs symbolize reunion of family.

Eight Precious Pudding – This famous traditional banquet dessert usually contains eight kinds of dried candied fruits that represent eight precious stones. This dish is also popular because the number eight is considered lucky.

Yu Sheng – Also known as Lo Hei, this dish, a salad containing raw fish and crunchy vegetables, is traditionally served on the seventh day of Chinese New Year, which the Chinese celebrate as "everyone's birthday." The vegetables symbolize the renewal of life, while the fish signifies prosperity. According to Chinese legend, the higher you toss the Yu Sheng salad, the greater your luck and prosperity in the New Year.
