Bacolod City is home to a lot of people who have Chinese ancestry. Because of this fact, since 2006, the city has made Bacolaodiat Festival – which celebrates the Chinese New Year – as one of its major annual events.
But whether you are a Bacolodnon or not, whether you have Chinese blood in you or none, the Chinese New Year is always a fun event to enjoy. While we expect exciting dragon dances and lion dances performed by dancers in spectacular costumes and makeup in the city, we can also take this occasion as an excuse to gather family and friends for a Chinese themed dinner party at home. As it only happens once a year, why not grab this opportunity to enjoy the Chinese culture/influences, right? Most definitely, the delicious Chinese cuisine!
Here are some of the mouthwatering Chinese dishes you might want to prepare for the Chinese New Year:
Egg Drop Soup
Sweet and Sour Pork
Sweet Rice Balls (Tangyuan)
