Chinese New Year is around the corner and you might be thinking of ways to get involved. Also known as the Lunar New Year, the occasion is a two-week festival that marks the beginning of the calendar year for billions of people in China and the Chinese diaspora around the world.
The ancient festival runs for 15 days and is celebrated in a number of different ways, most commonly through parades.
But, in my humble opinion, the best entry point to any culture is through its cuisine. That said, as a Muslim it can sometimes be hard to find a halal Chinese spot.

In my search for halal Chinese places in Manchester, I found the Oodles N’Oodles restaurant on Wilmslow Road. Placed at the top of the iconic Curry Mile, the restaurant’s menu consists of Chinese food favourites fused with some western ingredients, promising new beginners the best of both worlds.
A modern restaurant, the décor of the place is quite striking upon entry. With low lighting and a black and green colour scheme, there's an upmarket feel to the place.
A rose wall or foliage display of some sort has become custom for most upmarket places on the Curry Mile, and this restaurant boasts a sprawling fake blossom tree in the middle.
