Kung Hei fat Choi! It’s the year of mightiest of the Chinese Zodiac – the Dragon! And 2012 falls under the element water making it the year of the Water Dragon. It is said that water calms down the fire, making whatever issue from the past year be resolved, giving way to a smoother life as we sail the new year. Well, with the sumptuous Chinese food we had for lunch today at Tea of Spring, I would definitely agree.
iLuvCebu.com’s Reymond, Edd and I together with Shangri-La Mactan‘s Rica Rellon and Jay Dalumpines had the traditional Yee Sang Toss or Prosperity Toss. You ‘d notice the different interesting colors of the Yee Sang. Yee Sang itself symbolizes good luck but each ingredient actually represent and symbolize something – like for Daikon or white raddish symbolizes purity prosperity in business and promotion at work, , the green raddish for eternal youth, carrots for money and blessings of good luck, peanuts for long life of abundance, sesame seeds symbolizes flourishing business, five spice for thrill and excitement and plum sauce for sweetness in life and more luck.
Servings of great Chinese Dimsum – Pan fried dumplings, pork dumplings xiao long bao, steamed pork and shrimp dumplings, pan fried bean curd roll.
Tea of Spring specials – dried scallops with seafood in thick sauce, wok fried fish fillet served with spring onions and ginger, kung pao prawns, crispy roasted chicken with garlic, stewed mushroom, sea moss and bean curd and yang chow fried rice. Our favorite on this special is the Kung Pao Prawns – we recommend! ^_^
