From under S$40 per head, use these reunion dinner promotions in Singapore to save money on your feast during Chinese New Year 2017.
First published 8 December 2016. Last updated on 18 January 2017.
The eve of the Chinese New Year is when Chinese families have the most important meal of the year. It is customary for the entire extended family to get together, with new additions to the family in tow.
It may be nice to meet up with relatives you don’t get to see often, but having to cook a suitably large and sumptuous feast for that many people could prove challenging. That goes double when you think about having to host a reunion dinner for 12 people in your tiny apartment.
It’s no wonder Singaporeans have started having their reunion dinners at restaurants. Thanks to our vibrant culinary scene, there are plenty of options to pick from, whether you’re looking for a meal for 2, or a feast for 10 (or more).
For the coming year of the Rooster, try booking these reunion dinner promotions so you can enjoy a hassle-free holiday with the family. And if you can’t wait for the Lunar New Year eve to start dining, we also curated a few Chinese New Year buffet promotions you can enjoy throughout the festive season. We’ll be updating this article as we come across new deals, so follow us on Facebook to hear about it first!
