Where to eat during Chinese New Year 2015

Chinese New Year1

Chinese New Year (CNY) is around the corner. Sometimes in this festival associated with food, it is difficult to decide where to eat in Singapore. Many restaurants may not be open on one or more days during the CNY holidays and eateries that are operating may be crowded. We share our list of restaurants that come to mind when we are considering where to eat during Chinese New Year 2015. Just in case there is a need to avoid an overdose of lo hei during the festive season, we have included a few non-traditional options. Most the these restaurants are open throughout the Chinese New Year period.

(For a fresh list prepared for CNY 2016, please see Where to Eat During Chinese New Year 2016.)
