10 Festive Goodies To Bring Home this Chinese New Year
For those of us who prefer to hold our reunion dinners at home, planning and preparing can be quite a headache. Fret not, Team Tam Chiak has got you covered! Here’s a list of places which offer awesome dishes that you can take home to complement your steamboat or home-cooked fare. Dishes such as yu sheng can be hard to prepare, so why not save yourself the trouble, and order one instead? Don’t forget to grab some of the unique niangaos too!
Flavours At Zhongshan Park – Ramada Hotel
Yu Sheng or lo-hei is a must-have at every reunion table as it symbolises well-wishes, blessings, and starting off the New Year on an auspicious note. This Lunar New Year, toss your way to better fortune, and great health, with Ramada Singapore’s Yu Sheng Platter.
Topped with slices of fresh salmon, the yu sheng comes with either a traditional plum sauce or a spicy lemongrass sauce. The former caters to all taste buds while the latter is a refreshing twist on a flavour that’s close to our hearts. We absolutely loved the spicy lemongrass sauce as it lent just the right amount of zest to this classy ensemble. Last but not least, the platter is sprinkled generously with everyone’s favourite golden crackers. Nothing too over the top, nothing too fanciful. Ramada Singapore is keeping things simple, and plain delicious.
The Prosperity Yu Sheng is available for dine-in or takeaway at $38++ (4-6 pax) and $48++ (8-10pax) from 2 February 2018 to 2 March 2018.
Lao Beijing – Tung Lok Group
Lao Beijing has just about everything you need for a cozy reunion dinner in the comfort of your own home. The Chinese New Year Take-Home Feast comprises the breathtaking TungLok Treasure Bowl Pen Cai盆菜 (Royal盆菜 – $388/6 pax or $498/10 pax, Heavenly盆菜 – $488/6 pax or $698/10 pax), Prosperity Yu Sheng, Superior Herbal Chicken, Fried Glutinous Rice with Assorted Preserved Meat, and TungLok Nian Gao. The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has endorsed TungLok’s Yu Sheng Sauce for its lower sugar content, making it a perfect choice for a healthier celebration.

Our all-time favourite Pork Bak Kwa ($35/500g) returns this Chinese new year to the delight of those who have been missing and craving for it. Available in either honey-glazed or spicy flavour, the bak kwa makes a great gift (that is if you haven’t devoured them all). Making its debut this year is the Low-Sugar Nian Gao ($22 – $28/box), which comes in four flavours such as pandan, and red dates. It is also the first nian gao in Singapore to be recognized by the Health Promotion Board for its lower sugar, and high dietary fibre content.
MostValuedGuest, tunglokfirst members and UOB card members are entitled to a 15% discount on Festive Goodies: Bak Kwa and Nian Gao.

The Carvery – Park Hotel Alexandra
Yu sheng is always paired with slices of fresh fish but have you ever wondered how it would taste with meat? Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? This year, The Carvery at Park Hotel Alexandra has shaken things up a little with their Pulled Pork Lohei ($38.80+) which features premium pulled pork that has been marinated in thyme, rosemary, juniper berries and bay leaves, and slow roasted for 4 hours till it is incredibly tender, and juicy.
Apart from pulled pork, other intriguing ingredients found in the yu sheng include caramelised walnuts, Granny Smith apple strips, fried pickled ginger, crisp tortilla chips and orange pearls (they pop in your mouth!). The eclectic mix of ingredients are then bound together with a sweet and tart white balsamic peach dressing and olive oil. While you’re tossing to a prosperous new year ahead, remember to discreetly push the pulled pork to one side so you can have more! When it comes to pulled pork this good, we can get a little selfish.
Note that an advance order of three working days is required with pre-payment in full upon confirmation for the Pulled Pork Lohei.

For those who prefer celebrating CNY in the comfort of your home, a takeaway yu sheng might sound just about perfect. This Chinese New Year, VLV’s renowned Executive Head Chef, Martin Foo (previously Senior Executive Chef at Tung Lok), will be making his Signature Yusheng available for takeaway. The yu sheng is available in various sizes, and starts from $48(for 3-4 pax).
Chef Foo’s yu sheng comes with a myriad of fresh, crunchy, and colourful vegetables. 2 types of raw fish accompany VLV’s yu sheng — salmon and yellow tail.
The highlight of VLV’s yu sheng is Chef Foo’s signature Passionfruit sauce. Don’t get me wrong, the plum sauce used in most yu shengs is tasty, but VLV’s specially concocted Passionfruit sauce really stands out from the crowd as it has the perfect amount of zest and sweetness.
Why not treat your family and friends to this bright and cheery yu sheng this year?
