Hot! Chinese New Year 2022: 6 Restaurants To Reunite Over A Feast!

Content: Michelle Ng / Seraphina Tang

The feasting doesn’t end with Chinese New Year close on our heels. Once again with the threat of a pandemic rearing its head, we have to gather in groups of no more than 5 pax when. Although we’re not sure if this might be another blessing in disguise as we would have to break up our gatherings into smaller groups, thus allowing us to enjoy more meals and good food in even better company. And the smaller group means lesser fighting over delicious dishes, which you would want to take your time to appreciate the Chinese New Year menus at these 6 restaurants we’ve curated specially for you.

Conrad Singapore

1. Golden Peony at Conrad Centennial Singapore

Reminisce over a traditional CNY dinner over at Golden Peony, where Chef Ku has whipped up a bountiful meal to celebrate the roaring Year of the Tiger. Toss your way to abundance with their Lo Hei, which comes topped with snow crab, tiger prawns, crispy white bait and fish skin. The set menu features new creations like a refreshing Water Bamboo Shoot soup, New Bedford Scallops seared to perfection and fried in Golden Peony’s XO sauce, and an lovely Chilled Peach Jelly.

We were absolutely blown away by the Lobster Baked With Custard and Mozzarella Cheese with Sichuan Peppercorn Sauce. The crunchy custard and cheese worked together with the spicy sichyan peppercorn to bring out the freshness of the lobster, which comes out of the shell with a slight pull. End your meal with Gold Peony’s signature Suckling Pig, that is stuffed with preserved vegetables and rice Hakka style.

Set menus start from S$158 per person, available for booking from now till 15 February 2022.


2. SE7ENTH at Oakwood ATMD

SE7ENTH strikes the right balance between tradition and modernity with their CNY set menu. Their Propserity Yu Sheng has all the classic fittings, but with a slight twist with the addition of smoked salmon, smoked snow fish and a strawberry-infused plum sauce for that zesty-ness.

The Blissful Reunion Set Menu then continues with a comforting hearty Crabmeat & Fish Maw Soup with Bamboo Shoot & Bailing Mushroom, before diners can choose between a succulent Oven Baked Black Cod Fish with XO Sauce and Roasted Five Spice Potatoes or a flavourful Pan Seared Duck Breast with Mandarin Orange Sauce and Mashed Purple Potato. Desert is always a good way to cleanse your palate, and end the meal with the all-time favourite of Mango Sago with Champagne Pearls and a delectable Mochi.

The Blissful Reunion Set Menu will be available for dine-ins at SE7ENTH till 15 February 2022 for both lunch and dinner. Reservations can be made online via Chope, by

Cherry Garden

3. Cherry Garden at Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Cherry Garden has brought back their selection of five propitious Yu Sheng platters to give you an abundance of choice for your reunion dinner. The signature classic Prosperity Yusheng comes with salmon and crispy fish skin, or you can celebrate with the extra indulgent Triumph Yu Sheng that also comes topped with scallop, black truffle and black caviar ontop the fresh vegetables. With healthy eating becoming a trend late, the Garden of Health Yu Sheng is a mix of colorful fresh fruits and julienned vegetables. Other dishes to look forward include Braised Pork Belly, created by Chef Soong with a homemade brown sauce and Chinese mushrooms, and the Braised Sliced Abalone and Sea Cucumber, to signify good tidings and abundance in the new year. And of course, not to forget the popular Pan-fried Nian Gao for an extra boost of good luck and success!
