Celebrate the Chinese New Year Locally

February 4, 2019

New Year’s celebrations have finally died down, and we’re fully into the swing of 2019! However, if you’ve still got a spark of celebration left in you, there’s another festive occasion heading your way. The Chinese New Year will be marked this year on Feb. 5. The global holiday celebrates Chinese culture and marks the start of the traditional Chinese calendar year. Chinese communities around the world honor the occasion in a variety of ways—from festivals to family gatherings. Common in most festivities is one element that people of all cultural backgrounds can appreciate—food!

If you want to honor the Chinese New Year in your own way, use the occasion to check out one of the many restaurants near your Chestnut Square apartment serving up authentic Chinese dishes—to get a taste of Chinese culture and its unparalleled culinary creations! Locally, one of the standout Chinese eateries is Wave Noodle, just one block from your Chestnut Square apartment.

The longtime local restaurant features both takeout and dine-in options and is known for using the freshest, high-quality ingredients. Its vast lunch and dinner menus offer diners an authentic taste of Chinese classics, all with modern and unique spins. From spring rolls to squid, diners can start with appetizers of varying levels of adventure and then move on to one of the nearly 20 soups. On the entrée side, the menu features everything from chicken and pork to seafood, all packed with flavorful sides and veggies. Those who really brought their appetite can try one of the “chef’s specialties,” ranging from duck to beef, or the dinner specials, which are served with a number of sides and a drink for those looking to make the most of their money. No meal should be finished without dessert, and Wave Noodle features options like fried banana rolls and sweet donuts to give diners the full flavor of Chinese cuisine.

If you want to keep your New Year party going, head to Wave Noodle for a real taste of Chinese culture!
