Celebrate the Lunar New Year in White Plains15 Bank Apartments / January 24, 2020
Coming up on January 25 is the 15 day celebration of the Lunar New Year! Celebrated by billions around the world, 2020 is the Year of the Rat. Want to make a Chinese New Year feast at home in your 15 Bank kitchen? Be sure to include black seaweed as it symbolizes wealth for the new year. You can also share in the custom of handing out lucky money in red envelopes called Hung Bao.
If you’d rather dine out than cook at 15 Bank, dine out close to your 15 Bank apartment and try one of these Chinese restaurants to get in the spirit of the New Year!
Known as one of the best dim sum in White Plains, Aberdeen Seafood serves delicious authentic Chinese food while specializing in house-made dim sum, all within walking distance of your 15 Bank home. They also offer a large buffet style menu specializing in a traditional Cantonese cuisine experience.
A must for celebrating the Chinese New Year is Mandarin style Peking duck which started out as an Imperial dish over 1000 years ago. Air is pumped into the duck to loosen the skin and boiling water is repeatedly poured over the duck which is then air dried. Brushed with malt sugar and roasted until crisp, it is traditionally served with scallions, flour crepes, and Hoisin sauce for the New Year. Only a short drive from your 15 Bank home is the best Mandarin Chinese duck in Westchester at O Mandarin. Make a reservation for the Year of the Rat as they will be serving special traditional good luck dishes.
There’s more choices in White Plains for the Lunar New year! Take a quick stroll from your 15 Bank apartment to one of White Plains’ faves, Bao’s. At Bao’s Chinese Cuisine celebrate the year of the White Rat with an amazing array of authentic Chinese cuisine dishes. The restaurant decorates for this special occasion as well.
