Where to eat during Chinese New Year 2017 in Singapore

Happiness and food are highly connected, especially in Singapore. What better way to start a new year than by thinking of Where to eat during Chinese New Year 2017 in Singapore?

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year will be celebrated on 28 and 29 January 2017 in Singapore. We are still considering if we should have the traditional Chinese New Year reunion dinner at home or in a restaurant and where to eat in between our lunar new year visits. We are mulling over eating places that may be off the well-trodden path or are newly opened and of course that would be open during the festive period. If you are eating out during the lunar new year holidays or also thinking of places for tossing yu sheng and lo hei lunches, you may wish to read our list of restaurants for Chinese New Year 2017 for ideas. If you know of other interesting or out of the ordinary places for Chinese New Year celebrations, please share with us too.
