Super Bowl happens to fall on Lunar New Year. Why not organize a Super Bowl Chinese dinner party? The Lunar New Year begins on Jan. 31 and lasts for 15 days.
Super Bowl show time begins at 3:30 p.m. on the Fox channel. It’s a perfect time for Seattle fans to celebrate Lunar New Year. You can go have Chinese dim sum lunch before and a Chinese family dinner after, and watch the game in between with your friends and family.
Chinese family-style dinner would be the best for a big group. For the past five years, Chinatown’s family-style dinners are one of the best-kept secrets. Those dinners offer big portions and a low price tag.
For a $168 dinner, you can feed as many as 12 to 16 hungry diners. You can’t beat that price if you consume in a typical American restaurant.
What does $168 dinner entail? You wouldn’t believe the menu. With lots of fresh seafood such as crab, prawns, and fish, you can also have your Peking duck, beef, pork, chicken, and veggies. These dishes are all created with a name of fortune. If you can’t read Chinese, it won’t be a problem. Just ask for a Chinese family dinner in Chinatown restaurants close to the price range you want — $108, $138, $168, or $238, depending on the number of guests you have. Prices ranges are a little different from restaurant to restaurant, but they all end up with No. 8, signifying the Chinese word, faat, making wealth.
By the way, you can do takeout, too. (end)
