Good Luck Jai (part of Chinese New Year menu)

In the nearly 20 years that Little Village Noodle House has been in business in Chinatown, the charming eatery has managed to turn its makeshift village into a community of its own.

From regulars to newcomers, owner David Chang welcomes one and all to be a part of everything Little Village has to offer — which goes beyond exquisite eats, as the restaurant acts as a place of comfort and camaraderie.

Szechuan Spicy Chicken ($10.95)

Keying in on community gatherings, Chang invites hungry patrons to join in on the Chinese New Year celebrations. Call to reserve a seat for the extravagant annual lion dance on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

Dine and be joyful as you move to the beat of the dancing lion who, in Chinese tradition, chases the evil spirits away, gracing you with happiness, good fortune and longevity.

Adding to the festivities is a special Chinese New Year menu that diners only have until Feb. 5 to enjoy. Be sure to call in for required reservations. The menu includes Imperial Seafood Winter Melon Soup, Seafood Lettuce Wrap, Kau Yuk with Steamed Bun, Salt & Pepper Kauai Prawns, Oven Fresh Roasted Duck and the list goes on.

Hu Nam Spicy Steamed Fish ($15.95)

Most importantly, however, don’t forget to slurp up a heaping bowl of Good Luck Jai — also on the Chinese New Year menu. This veggie collaboration of rice noodles, ginko nuts, snow peas, carrots, mushrooms and more is a symbol of prosperity, health and good luck.

Further dig into mouth-watering regular menu items that are responsible for bringing customers back for more, including favorites like Hu Nam Spicy Steamed Fish ($15.95) and Szechuan Spicy Chicken ($10.95).

There’ll be no more rumbling in your tummy after enjoying these pleasurable creations!
