Food stalls lined the streets throughout Chinatown and filled the air with scents too hard to resist.  Traditional Chinese dishes such as, Peking Duck, Nian Gao and Spring Rolls were easy to seek out. Oranges are believed to bring good fortune for the coming year and were in plentiful supply throughout the busy streets.
