The lion dance, chasing away the evil spirits… Chinese New Year is the promise of an exotic celebration and wonderful treats. In chic or affordable price versions: our two terrific options.

The Asian street-food option

It’s a lot like being in the streets of Shanghai or Peking... You can feel the fragrance of crispy caramel chicken tickling your nose, just like spicy Chinese fondue and baos, these exquisite Pekinese brioches?

To celebrate Chinese New Year as it deserves, the must-go Food Market is back on track with “its Asian street food market”— made in Belleville…

For this occasion, the incredible chef Zhao from the Taverne de Zhao has recruited the best Asian restaurants of the capital with a street food sauce.

The surprise guest star? Adeline Grattard, star chef of the restaurant Yam’tcha, will be presenting on the market the street food specialties of her restaurant—Café Lai’tcha!

What’s on the stands?Spicy, sticky—everything we like. Yummy: the baos from Shanghai (the famous raviolis, stuffed with meat and broth, sweet and sour fish soup from Yangzhou, an amazing Taiwanese crispy fried chicken, or hand-picked noodles, prepared Pekinese style, eggplant sautéed with garlic and caramelized with soya.

Yummy! The must: all the dishes cost less than €10.
