[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!!!

1. Pan Pacific Hotel – Hai Tien Lo

[CNY 2019] Many must-try dishes from Marriott’s Wan Hao Restaurant this year

Wan Hao Marriott Chinese New Year Menu - Imperial Pot of Prosperity Pen Cai

It can be hard to decide on the the best hotel venue or restaurant to have your Chinese New Year reunion dinner, especially when all of these F&B establishments are pulling out all the stops to get your attention and they all end up looking very similar. After tasting quite a number of Chinese New Year menus, I am glad to report that Wan Hao Restaurant from Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel at Orchard Road offers up one of the best CNY menus this year. Scroll down to see some of the highlights from the Marriott buffet as well as ala-carte and set menus.

In particular, two dishes incorporating almond had me in awe and finishing up every last drop, when for decades I have avoided any Chinese dishes with almond stock/milk/cream under the assumption that I did not like it. More on that if you scroll down further.

Chinese New Year 2018– Delicious CNY dishes from neighbourhood restaurant Gao Peng Cuisine!

[Media Invite]

One restaurant I am happy to recommend is this neighbourhood restaurant called Gao Peng Cuisine located in White Sands Mall at Pasir Ris, which I have been frequenting for the past 1 year whenever I visit the Pasir Ris Library or take Baby Edward for enrichment classes. I love the dim sum here, especially this dough fritter wrapped in cheong fun dish, which is only available until 5pm.

Gao Peng Cuisine also has another outlet at Junction 9 in Yishun. In fact, Gao Peng is owned by Gao Ji Food, which also owns House of Roasted Duck in Bugis Village and Sultan Plaza. Apparently, Gao Ji Food was started all the way back in 1954 when founder Mr Chong Seng Tong plied the streets of Chinatown with his wife on foot selling Hakka Yong Tow Foo. You know the famous Koo Kee Yong Tow Foo, my favourite Yong Tow Foo, it’s started by Mr Chong!! You can read more about Gao Ji Food here.

Gao Peng CNY 2018 Menu

History aside, I was happy to find out that Gao Peng Cuisine will be offering a Chinese New Year menu, and I was privileged to be invited to sample the menu before hand. Scroll down for pictures of the dishes we tried. Oh if there’s one thing you must order, it’s the Pencai from House of Roasted Duck. Most Pencai feature seafood ingredients, but because this Pencai from House of Roasted Duck, there’s roasted duck and roast pork included, which makes a refreshing change to the usual hotel pencais you see around. The roast meats also add to the flavour of the broth.

Chinese New Year 2018 – Swissotel Merchant Court Ellenborough Market Cafe

The Chinese New Year 2018 media tastings are coming in fast and furious, and it’s not a minute too early because have you heard, some popular restaurants are already fully booked or close to being fully booked. Some hotels have even resorted to opening up their ballrooms to cater for more reunion dinner tables, although those are likely to be buffet style because getting manpower on Chinese New Year Eve is going to be craaaazy!

[CNY Media Invite]

And just like that, we’ve moved into 2018 and it’s now time to talk about Chinese New Year 2018 instead of Christmas 2017. A couple of weeks back, I had the privilege of having a sneak peak at what Hai Tien Lo Restaurant at Pan Pacific Singapore has in store for family reunions, CNY gatherings and Lo Hei luncheons. Hey come to think of it, I celebrated Christmas with a Champagne Brunch at Pan Pac, and I got to celebrate CNY early at Hai Tien Lo. Good times Smile

Available from 22 January to 2 March 2018, Hai Tien Lo will be offering a grand total of eight reunion set menus featuring everyone’s favourite CNY delicacies. There will also be one nutritious vegetarian set menu. Scroll down to see pictures of a selection of dishes from the set menus.
