In China New Year’s Eve is seen as an important date, with families gathering together for a reunion dinner. Firecrackers are then let off to signal the end of last year and the beginning of next. The Year of the Rooster will begin on January 28, 2017 and celebrations will last until February 12th. In honor of the holiday, we’ve rounded up a list of restaurants where you can enjoy some Chinese cuisine, with your family, in the Des Moines area.
