Chinese New Year is a big event in the Philippines, which is not a shock given the large Chinese-Filipino population. Enjoying a meal is usually how we celebrate the occasion, but you might not want to go through the trouble of cooking a feast at home. We’ve found a few restaurants and online food businesses that have found ways to adapt and provide services so you can celebrate with your family safely.
The fun of ordering in food is you can pick and choose your favorites and have a selection of dishes that everyone loves. Here are a few you should add to your Lunar New Year meal:
