Each individual dish is steeped in tradition and is a homonym for a particular blessing for the upcoming year, such as "have a lot of fun" 💃🕺😁😇😜 or "make a lot of money 💱💳💲.
Name and look for each dish is symbol of wishes for prosperity, happiness 😛😋😉🙃😹 and auspiciousness. Such as,
Steam Fish 🐟 symbolize surplus and wealth🤑💰
Fish 🐠🎣is a must for the Chinese New Year. Why does fish symbolize surplus and wealth 💲? In Chinese, fish (鱼) has the same pronunciation as 余, which means “surplus” or “extra.” The typical blessing is 年年有余, wishing you to have a surplus (or fish) of food and money 💲 every year.
Long Noodles 🍜or Misua symbolize long life 🧓👵
Long noodles 🍜 represent longevity 🧓👵. They usually are served uncut. Misua signifies long life, and the noodle is also a traditional birthday 🎂🍾 dish.
Rice 🍚 Cake 🍰 or Nian Gao symbolize a Higher ⇧ Income 💷💵💸 or Position
Nian gao also has the same pronunciation as 高 (gāo). It’s a wish to be successful and “higher” ⬆ each year. Every year will be better than the last. Some humorous parents 👨👩👧 like to tell their children that eating this will help them grow taller ⏫ too 🤣😂.
They are either made of sticky glutinous rice or yellow rice, giving nian gao two major colors and textures.
Spring roll, or chun juan symbolize wealth 💰💶
Spring roll is a dim sum dish that's named after the Spring Festival. The words chun juan literally mean spring and roll. The golden color of the fried spring rolls represent gold bars — which, of course, symbolize wealth 😚🤭.
3.Red Envelope or Ang Pow 😍😛
