Li Bai at Sheraton Towers is a household name. The Cantonese restaurant has withstood the test of time, and remains one of Singapore's best restaurants. The winner of multiple prestigious accolades, Li Bai continues to blow diners away with a plethora of beautifully-executed Cantonese dishes. Because Li Bai is often fully booked for the whole of Chinese New Year, some families and companies have chosen to celebrate the Lunar New Year way before it even starts, just to dine at their favourite Cantonese restaurant. Have a look at some of their CNY 2018 highlights.

Wan Hao - Best Restaurant for Reunion Dinner this Chinese New Year

 photo Wan Hao Marriott CNY 1.jpg
Wan Hao, the resident Chinese restaurant at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel is one of the top Chinese restaurants on our little red dot, and also one of Singaporeans' absolute favourite. Every year, Wan Hao is completely booked throughout all 15 days of the Lunar New Year. It shouldn't come as a surprise, though, because the famous restaurant is amazing at what they do — every dish is thought through carefully, prepared with love, and meticulously assembled.

Tamashii Robataya - Best Beef Bowl, Best Yusheng and Yummy Omakase

 photo Tamashii Robataya Yu Sheng.jpg
I've had quite a number of yusheng platters this year but little did I expect to find my absolute favourite at a Japanese restaurant. The truffle-infused yusheng comes with salmon sashimi, yellow tail sashimi, surf clam salad, jellyfish, salmon soft skull and house-made crab crackers. Apart from the incorporation of more uncommonly-seen ingredients, another noteworthy feature is the crab crackers which were unbelievably addictive. The truffle sauce binds every ingredient together flawlessly and while some may find this a little too sweet, it was perfect for me. This was the first time that I've witnessed an entire plate of yusheng cleaned out. Well, it comes as no surprise. I loved it!

Yàn Cantonese Cuisine Celebrates the Year of the Fire Rooster

 photo Yan Cantonese Cuisine CNY 2017 1.jpg
Almost every restaurant in Singapore has a Chinese New Year menu, or their very own renditions of yusheng and it might be challenging to decide on a restaurant to have reunion dinner at. My family usually sticks to the same old restaurants that we trust and love. I'm not sure about you but maybe you will like to give the one year old Yàn at National Gallery a shot this lunar new year.

The Chinese New Year Luncheon was quite an extravagant affair which started with an energetic lion dance performance with Pan Pacific Singapore's very own "lions", followed by various other performances on stage while signature dishes from all the properties under Pan Pacific Hotel Group were served.

 photo indocafe chinese new year 2016.jpg
INDOCAFE takes on Cantonese cuisine this lunar new year with different set menus. The Prosperous Menu, tailored for 3 - 4 pax, will be featured in this post. The meal kicked off with the Glorious Prosperity Yu Sheng with Baby Abalone which was definitely a notch above the rest with the unique inclusion of house made curry sauce. The subtle flavours of the curry sauce melded flawlessly with all the ingredients. While it was on the light side, I still enjoyed the little twist.

Celebrating Chinese New Year at a restaurant has never sounded this enticing. Apart from awesome credit card promotions, diners are entitled to a complimentary yusheng for lunch reservations and the entire Fivefold Fortune Set on the house for dinner reservations! If that's not a total bang for the buck, I'm not quite sure what is.

The three festive menus available cater to groups of 4 to 10 pax and they feature at least eight authentic Japanese dishes including this creative yusheng tower that comes with amaebi, tobiko, kanpachi and salmon. We tried the $666 menu catered for 6-8 people. Read on to find out what to expect!
