Lunar Listicles

naraql.JPGCultureMap's Amy Chien rounds up the top places to ring in the year of the horse. Chien lists Nara as a place to head for Chinese New Year : "The most common Lunar New Year food is nian gao, or rice cakes. Gao sounds the same as the word for tall, so rice cakes symbolize achieving new heights in the coming year. The best rice cakes I've had recently came from Nara." [CultureMap]
