Amara Singapore presents an array of Chinese New Year delicacies and reunion meals for diners to ring in a prosperous Year of the Rooster. At Silk Road, there is a refined selection of premium celebratory signatures and traditional festive must-haves. To start, its Prosperity 8-treasure Yu Sheng showcases an elaborate combination of cured salmon, jellyfish, whitebait, crispy fish skin, sliced abalone and ikura roe in a special dressing and a fruity zest.
The Braised Pork Knuckle with Sea Cucumber and Chestnut arrived on our dining table with heavenly aromas. The meat is meltingly tender and the sauce fantastic . We were captivated by the glistening skin of the Traditional Beijing Roasted Duck. The crispy surface crackles open revealing the tender, succulent meat beneath. Make sure you leave some space in your stomach for their Steamed Fragrant Rice. It is cooked with salted fish, Chinese sausage and waxed meat and is one of the better versions I have had.
The CNY Lunch and Dinner Menu are available from now till 11 February (except dinner on 27 January) from $68 per person (minimum of 2 diners). The CNY Eve Reunion Dinner starts from $68 per person (minimum of 2 diners).

Crowned “The Queen of Dim Sum”, Master Chef GE Xian’E has gained fame in China for over three decades. Besides the standard Chinese New Year offerings, Avenue Joffre is introducing Chinese New Year Dim Sum to celebrate the golden Lunar New Year period.
From Deep-fried Golden Pockets with Sliced Mandarin Fish Filling, to Pan-fried Glutinous Rice Balls with Pork & Vegetable Filling, to “Snow Mountain” BBQ Pork Buns, to Steamed Deluxe Jujube & Walnut Cake, there’s something for everyone.
Our favourites are the Pan-fried Glutinous Rice Balls with Pork & Vegetable Filling, and Steamed Deluxe Jujube & Walnut Cake. Glutinous rice balls signifies a happy family sticking together through thick and thin in Chinese culture. The steamed cake is made of 3 layers, namely red dates, walnut and crystal jelly. We enjoyed the cake’s fluffiness and its subtle sweetness.
Other a la carte items that you should try at Avenue Joffre are the lychee-wood roasted BBQ dishes such as the Roasted Cantonese Duck ($22 regular / $39 half / $75 whole) and Honey-glazed Barbecued Pork ($18 small / $26 medium / $32 large). In the past, the ducks were sourced from Malaysia but the chefs realised that the meat was a tad too tough, hence they have switched to London ducks which boasts meat that are more moist and tender. It also has a thin layer of fat on its skin, with a jelly-like texture – simply palatable!

Pamper your loved ones, and yourself, with the best of Cantonese cuisine that comes with a twist.
The Baked Chilean Sea Bass with Homemade Special Chili Sauce was simply divine. Dive into that flaky and juicy fish, which is completed with a dollop of heat. The chili was especially fragrant and not overly spicy, making this dish easily the most memorable takeaway of the night.
The Wok-fried Japanese M9 Wagyu Beef with Young Ginger and Pineapple was another hero of the night, as it showcased the chef’s excellent culinary skills. Cooked to perfection, the tender and juicy beef cubes met our high expectations and there was absolutely nothing that we did not love about this dish.

With an omakase starting from $168, you get the freshest seafood and ingredients specially flown in from Japan and cooked by a team of experienced chefs. A few memorable dishes in our omakase includes the seasonal shrimp yam that is first pan fried before coating it with a Japanese crabmeat broth. You can really the freshness from the yam.
Abalone seems to be a must-have when it comes to Chinese New Year. The Abalone with Green Pepper is grilled together with the abalone liver sauce, hence giving it a rich flavour when you bite on the chewy texture. Don’t be turn off by the green pepper because the spicy level is closed to zero.
I like to end the meal with a bowl of grilled beef don with truffle and onsen egg. This is one of the best beef don in Singapore. Pair it with comforting Sea Brim Soup cooked simply with miso and helps to get rid of some greasiness. Tamashii’s omakase package is available all year round and you can tell the chefs your dietary preference so as to enjoy a good meal with your loved ones.

Toss to prosperity with Yàn’s Signature Yellowtail Fish & Crispy Lobster Filler Yu Sheng with Golden Flake in Shun De Style. The dish is plated like a breathtaking piece of art, so befitting of a restaurant located at the National Gallery of Singapore. A base of crispy fried vermicelli is elevated to resemble a majestic tower, symbolising heightened success.
