[CNY 2019] Yan Cantonese Cuisine

Signature Roast Crispy Suckling Pig $288 whole

You would have read from my feature article on Chinese New Year Yusheng that Yan Cantonese Cuisine serves up a pretty interesting yusheng. The Kaleidoscope of Prosperity Yusheng in “Shun De Style” is more savoury than your usual yusheng so if you don’t like the veggie/salad taste of yusheng, this yusheng from Yan is the one for you. The mountain of crispy fried vermicelli topped with gold leaves also makes a crackling sound (like firecrackers!) when drizzled with the yusheng dressing. Doubly unique!

I thought I should also feature some of Yan’s other dishes because they really are worthy of mention. Trust the Cantonese restaurants to be able to get their soups and roast meats right. Even if you visit after Chinese New Year, you definitely should try out their soups and roast meats. I have visited Yan Cantonese Cuisine a couple of times previously and the food here is consistently good.

[CNY 2019] Eight colourful and auspicious Yu Sheng platters to try this Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year 2019 is but one week away! Have you completed all your CNY shopping and other CNY errands? One Chinese New Year tradition that must not be missed is the tossing of yusheng with family, friends and colleagues, aka lohei! The Chinese believe this is a very auspicious way to welcome the new year. Even if you are not a believer, it cannot be denied that this is a very fun activity to participate in, be you young or old. The aim is to toss it high while still keeping it within the platter! Check out my video at the end of this post to see how toddler Edward reacted to his first lohei! Priceless!

Anyway, here are 8 places where you can get yusheng in Singapore. Bonus one at the back too! Huat Ah!!!

[CNY 2019] Poon Confectionary – Literally homemade Chinese New Year goodies (plus a giveaway!)

Chinese New Year is just over a week away. Have you decided on where or which brand of CNY goodies to purchase? I know some will simply go to the Chinese New Year Bazaar in Chinatown to grab discounted deals, while some will go for the big brands.

You may not have heard of Poon Confectionary but if you like the idea of homemade goodies, you may just want to consider Poon Confectionary. They are one of the very few brands selling homemade goodies from Malaysia. These goodies are literally homemade! That is, they are made in the homes of families from the same village with more than 20-30 years of baking, as opposed to making them in a commercial kitchen.

Very importantly, these Chinese New Year goodies do not contain any preservatives, added flavourings nor MSG. The pricing is also pretty attractive, plus there’s a 7% discount on the rack prices you see! If you shop around, you will know. Scroll down to see more pictures of the some of the goodies I tried as well as the pricing.

I’m having a giveaway on my Instagram account. If you want to participate, head over to https://www.instagram.com/365days2play/. I’ll be picking 6 winners to win a CNY goodie of their choice! Contest ends 26 Jan 2019 2359hr!
