Vietnamese Foodies, Dubai’s freshest and most authentic choice for Vietnamese food is once again giving back to its team 44 hard-working staff by sharing a full day’s revenues – minus food costs – with them in honor and celebration of Lunar New Year.
Taking place on Lunar New Year’s Eve, 24th January, this year will make the third occasion that the home-grown restaurant brand will undertake the tradition.
According to Lily Hoa Nguyen, Owner and Executive Chef of Vietnamese Foodies, Lunar New Year is a time for family and friends to gather, as well as a time to invite luck and good fortune for the year ahead. It’s also a time when elder family members give Hong Pao, or red envelopes, which contain a symbolic amount of money to younger family members.
“Tet Nguyen Dan in Vietnam is a time whereby people travel all over the country to be reunited with family members. It’s a holiday filled with festivities and revelry. As many of our staff will be missing this holiday at home, we wanted to continue the tradition here in Dubai, to thank them for their ongoing and valuable contribution to Vietnamese Foodies, as well as extend good wishes and good fortune to them in the New Year.” Hoa said.
