The Chinese New Year banquet consists of foods that symbolize good luck, fortune, and long life.
Noodles are one of the traditional Chinese New Year dishes. Longevity noodles are extremely long Chinese noodles that symbolize longevity. In a multi-course banquet, noodles might be served simply dressed, without additional toppings. To make this dish a complete meal, these are enriched with pan-fried tofu and edamame. They also offer an early taste of spring with the fresh flavors of baby spinach and thinly sliced fennel.
