While the whole world knows that food nourishes the body, the Chinese believes that eating certain dishes and delicacies, especially during Chinese New Year, do more than just improve someone’s physical wellness.

Now that the Chinese New Year is just around the corner, Park Inn by Radisson Clark is introducing its buffet offering that contains food items that will indeed, as beliefs hold, attract good fortune.

Begin attracting luck at HUES by eating steamed dumplings (siomai) from the dim sum station. According to China Highlights, legend has it that the more dumplings eaten, the more money can be made. Besides siomai, there will also be man tao and wonton.

Another starter from the HUES buffet menu that is said to invite wealth is the spring roll. So, make sure to try this and the other appetizers such as the assorted cold cuts when you dine.

The Chinese New Year buffet at HUES would not be complete without a noodle dish that, to the Chinese, symbolizes happiness and long life. The Stir-fried Udon with Shrimp will definitely do the trick. Other main entrees include Hainanese Chicken and Beef Brisket Stew.

Steamed Kaila (Chinese Broccoli) with Garlic Oyster Sauce will also be served, which leafy green symbolize money and prosperity. On one hand, for guests who wish to take on a healthier alternative for meat, a Mapo Tofu is prepared for them.

Desserts bring sweetness for New Year revelers. And HUES got this food category covered for guests, as it will also deploy pomelo mango sago, almond lychee, fresh fruit slices and buchi. The pomelo is said to be a good fortune fruit, and buchi, a type of Chinese pastry made from glutinous rice flour, inspires togetherness in the family.

The HUES buffet will also have a soup station and a carving station, which will feature a Chinese-style Pork Asado.
