About our Menu: Chinese New Year is the most traditional of Chinese festivals. It is a 15-day celebration that begins each year in January or February, according to the lunar calendar. We aim to merge two traditions in the food offered: Cantonese dim sum and more substantial dishes prepared particularly for Chinese New Year. China Tea House specializes in dim sum, which is the Chinese equivalent of tapas. In Canton, Hong Kong, and in Chinatowns across the world, carts laden with a variety of small dishes are rolled through the dining room. At our dinner, we will enjoy a selection of approximately ten meat, seafood, vegetable and sweet dim sum dishes. Try several or try all of them!
