Take your Chinese New Year celebrations to the next level
It is the time of the year when grocery stores and restaurants dress up in red and gold and everyone is picking up the mandarin oranges. Markham is an area famous for some of the most extravagant Chinese New Year performances. Here are some ideas to match that level of celebrations from the comfort of your home.
Oh, So Sweet!
The ‘Tray of Togetherness’ is a must-have element for 2022 lunar new year celebrations. It’s filled with candies, nuts, and seeds that symbolize happiness, good fortune, and more. And there’s no better place to pick up these items than the locals’ favorite Ding Dong Exotic Sweet at Pacific Mall.
Go nuts with dried seafood
Poon Choi is a traditional festival meal made of symbolic ingredients for a luxurious feast. While the recipe may be different in each household, usually the most popular ingredients consist of sea cucumber, fish maw, dried oysters, black moss, algae, and dried abalone. You can get these Asian delicacies and more at Shing Hing Food, one of the most popular shops in Canada.
Order-in some Luck
Forget cooking and treat yourself to a nice full-course meal from Providential 9, one of the best Chinese New Year food places in Markham. Go for the chicken, get some e-fu noodles and the full fish which complete the theme of togetherness, nourishment, and abundance for the Chinese New Year.
Cake it all!
Desserts with rice and radishes in their ingredients are enjoyed as a symbol of growth and fortuitous meanings. Vasa Victoria Fine Dining makes some of the best rice cakes and radish cakes that you can enjoy at Chinese New Year festival celebrations. Pro tip: pan-fry them at home to make it all even yummier.
Décor your home
Whether you want to have subtle decorations or go viral with your setup, the New Far East Worshipping Speciality Store is the place to check out for all your décor needs. From worshipping materials to festive elements, all the way to traditional red items, you can make your home look on par with any big event.
