Happy Chinese New Year: Where to Feast in Dallas?

How bad can The Year of the Rabbit be? photo courtesy of Crow Museum.

It’s time to tuck a plum blossom in your hair and feast on the delightful foods of China. Today is the beginning of the Chinese New Year and 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit (tranquility!). No more nasty tigers or stinky rats, just cute little bunnies. You can take your bunnies to the Crow Museum of Asian Art on Saturday where they will feature lion dances, lantern making, yoga inspired by the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, and a rabbit petting zoo in honor of the Year of the Rabbit.  I’ve got plans to feast at Yao Fuzi in Plano. Have any of you decided where you will celebrate? Give it up.

    3-6-9 Chinese BBQ in Plano. English language menu is mainly familiar items. Chinese white board menu is the esoteric (to me, intriguing, stuff). We are joining 40 of our closest friends.

    Yao Fuzi is da bomb! I’ve done the New Years feast there a couple times – amazing.

    Chez Moi. Having my annual Chinese New Year party this weekend. Most food is home made, the rest is from Howard Wangs.

    this just in from Steel

    Thursday, February 3 – Saturday, February 5

    In recognition of the New Year of the Rabbit, Steel Restaurant is pleased to offer a special three course dinner menu, including interesting items that symbolize wealth and prosperity, whole fish which is a wish for abundance, and long noodles to bring longevity.

    On Thursday February 3rd at 8pm, there will be an enactment of the traditional Lion Dance, performed by students of the Chin Woo School. Red envelopes will be available for you to “feed” the lions with a small amount of money, which should bring you good luck and prosperity for the New Year.

    The restaurant will be decorated with red and gold colors in abundance, the Chinese believe gold is the symbol of power, and red is the symbol of happiness.

    $45 per guest. Reservations available from 5:30 – 10pm each night. Call 214-219-9908 for reservations today!

    We love Yao Fuzi too. The xiao long bao are so deeevine! But with the weather being like this there’s no way we can venture out there. We got as far as Royal China today and ate the xiao long bao and the hand made noodles.

    PS thanks for featuring Chinese New Year… with so much Super Bowl fever in Dallas, it’s almost forgotten.
