Little Village Noodle House, known best for its classic Northern Chinese cuisine, is celebrating Chinese New Year (Feb. 12) in a flavorful fashion.

“Start this Chinese New Year with Good Fortune Jai from Little Village Noodle House, which is packed with quality ingredients and lots of good fortunes!” shares owner David Chang.

Located in the heart of Chinatown, Little Village’s special Good Fortune Jai ($16.95) is an Americanized version of a traditional Chinese dish, Chang explains.

“All ingredients in jai symbolize good health, luck and fortune to get a start on this coming new year,” he adds. “All vegetarian, too!”

Open for takeout only for the time being, the Smith Street eatery’s menu also boasts timeless favorites, like Orange Chicken ($12.75), Honey Walnut Shrimp ($18.95), House Special Fried Rice ($11.75), and Salt and Pepper Pork Chop ($14.75).

“Please stay safe. We are almost there,” says Chang. “Kung Hee Fat Choi to everyone!”
