Celebration includes special menus, night market vibe, Kung Fu demos
Tiger Fork prepares to celebrate the Chinese New Year with special dishes and a night-market atmosphere from January 20 to January 26. Chef de Cuisine Jong Son will serve a special a-la-carte menu of traditional Cantonese dishes, These dishes represent good luck that will come in the new year. Hong-Kong inspired Tiger Fork will also host an all-day celebration Saturday, January 25, complete with lion dancers and Kung Fu demonstrations.
During the week, all guests dining during the Tiger Fork celebration will receive a traditional red envelope with their checks. This is part of a long, time-honored tradition, noted the restaurant’s announcement. “During Lunar New Year, bright red envelopes are traditionally gifted to friends and family. Filled with money, these envelopes symbolize good wishes and luck for the new year ahead.”

In addition, Kung Fu artists will host demos for Tiger Fork guests who are interested. The restaurant will remain open all-day long on the 25th to serve its customers with regular reservations and walk-ins.
