Dian Xiao Er

Welcome the new year with Dian Xiao Er’s Chinese New Year set menus and New Year’s Eve takeaway packages. Let ‘Xiao Er’ teach you New Year’s ABCs with their Auspicious, Bountiful and Celebration Set Menus! The set menus ($148 to $648 per set) are available in various sizes, suitable for gatherings from three to eight persons.

Two of the new highlights which you definitely should not miss are the Prawns & Mushrooms with Pumpkin and Cheese Broth, and Spare Ribs with Apricot in Special Sauce. It sure is a bold move to put together pumpkin and cheese in the same dish, but Dian Xiao Er has done it really well. The succulent and fall-off-the-bone tender spare ribs are dressed in a special sauce paired with juicy morsels of apricot. The ribs are delightfully sweet and savory!

CNY Eve Takeaway Package

Dian Xiao Er also offers CNY Eve Takeaway packages (starting from $62.80) this year! There are four variations of the package which includes dishes such as Fortune “Dong Po” Braised Pork Belly, Braised Sea Cucumber & Mushrooms with Abalone, and the Signature Herbal Roast Duck (whole). You can have a wonderful feast at home too!

Reservations have to be made directly in-stores. Online orders are available at selected outlets only. Visit their website for more details.
