There are some foods that we eat during Chinese New Year. I've grouped them into three categories.
New Year Eve - jiaozi and dumplings.
New Year Dim Sums
2nd Day of New Year - vegetables. In Cantonese, vegetables sounds like '開齊' which means 'a good start'. So lunch of the second day of New Year generally has a dish of assorted veggies. Chickens and fishes are highly popular among Chinese families during New Year.
