Celebrate the Lunar New Year With These 6 Festive Menus
At the heart of the Lunar New Year is ultimately a celebration of food and family.
So, the Lunar New Year is looking a little different this year. Perhaps the annual dinner gatherings at your favourite restaurants can’t happen, or that you’re going to have to stagger relative visiting timings. Either way, you don’t have to do the planning alone.
Despite the restrictions in place, you best believe that you can still enjoy your darling dishes with Frasers Makan Master
. When you can’t go to the Lunar New Year spread, let it come to you, we say! We’ve rounded up six great home delivery and takeaway options so that you can get both maximum indulgence and maximum safety this holiday season.
Dian Xiao Er
Usher in the Year of the Ox with a splendid ensemble of sumptuous culinary celebrations at Dian Xiao Er.
Born out of a vision to serve up delicious herbal roast ducks in a casual dining setting, Dian Xiao Er has become a brand synonymous with that, and much more.
A must-have during Lunar New Year gatherings, toss to good health and fortune with its Prosperity Yusheng — where you can select from a choice of abalone or smoked salmon, paired with a harmony of traditional condiments and sauces. There’s also a selection of signature mainstays to offer you a myriad of delectable options for your reunion feast.
You can look forward to classic signatures like the Herbal Roast Duck, Fish Maw Thick Soup with Seafood, as well as “Dong Po” Braised Pork Belly — all befitting of the festivities.
Joe & Dough
Whether traditional or modern, there’s always room for Joe & Dough desserts during Lunar New Year!
Eating sweets during the Lunar New Year is encouraged as it represents bringing sweet happenings to the coming year, or starting the new year on a sweet note.
While not exactly your typical fortune cake or fa gao (发糕), the roundness of Joe & Dough’s Guanaja marble cake can just as well represent family unity and togetherness. Symbolisms aside, the classic marble cake is one of those cakes that most people find hard to turn down.
For the uninitiated, the dual-toned cake’s marbled effect is created by layering and swirling two different coloured cake batters together. Joe & Dough uses chocolate- and vanilla-flavoured batter for its Guanaja marble cake, which gives it the beautiful chocolate swirls and a flavourful vanilla cake base. It is crowned with rich and luscious Valrhona Guanaja Chocolate frosting, taking this sweet delight to the next level. Simple yet satisfying, this scrumptious treat is at its best when served warm, and pairs perfectly with a cup of hot tea.
Kuriya Japanese Market
Usher in a new year of greater success and prosperity with fresh sashimi from Kuriya Japanese Market!
When it comes to celebrating the Lunar New Year in Singapore, one simply cannot celebrate the occasion without observing the lou hei (捞起) (Cantonese for “tossing up”) tradition and eating yusheng (鱼生). This dish is enjoyed in homes and restaurants all over Singapore during the Lunar New Year period. As such, if you’re looking for some delicious yusheng to celebrate togetherness and ring in good fortune in the year ahead — we got you!
Kuriya Japanese Market is known to be a one-stop shop for Japanese food items including fresh sashimi, sushi, sake, frozen food items, sauces, seasonings, and condiments. So you can depend on them for the freshest ingredients for special occasions.
Upgrade your yusheng experience with fresh Hamachi (Yellowtail) air-flown from Japan! You can choose from the Abundance Yusheng (12pcs Salmon, 8pcs Hamachi, 8pcs Maguro) or the Blessings Yusheng (6pcs Salmon, 6pcs Hamachi) set. Both sets are served with Kuriya Japanese Market’s house signature Japanese Yuzu Sauce. Another unique Japanese twist is the inclusion of Chuka Kurage (seasoned jellyfish) and Chuka Wakame (seasoned seaweed) as base ingredients for the prosperity toss.

This fruity pizza is a symbol of happiness, prosperity and wealth.
Welcome a prosperous Year of the Ox with Pezzo’s seasonal Fortune Pizza! Boasting a festive colour palette, this East-meets-West offering is made with fresh mandarin oranges to liven up this anything-but-ordinary pizza.
With their citrusy brightness, the oranges add a touch of freshness and zing to the savoury ingredients. Topped with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese, the chunks of popcorn chicken bring a juicy, crispy bite while bits of red capsicum contribute a hint of spice. The finishing touch to this seasonal special? A generous drizzle of sesame oil, and a sprinkling of sliced spring onions. Pulling all of the ingredients together is Pezzo’s secret orange sauce, which leaves a sweet-tangy note that lingers on the palate.
To get your money’s worth, choose from the Prosperity Bundle, Harvest Bundle or Bountiful Blessings Combo. All of them come with the Fortune Pizza, at least one side (wings and/or drumlets), and no sugar Coke (2 to 4 cans).
