Celebrating Chinese New Year has become a thing for me the past few years, which is interesting, because I am not Chinese. It’s gotten easy to do so because my coworker is from Taiwan and we’re very good friends. It makes sense to go out to a real (not American) Chinese restaurant and get some delicious foods and tea to celebrate. He’s a good friend of mine, and I enjoy culture, so why not partake in some of the fun?
Besides, any reason to go to Shangri-La in Belmont is good by me. A big bowl of spicy beef noodle soup really picks me up, especially when I’m not feeling one hundred percent. Huzzahs all around!
