  1. Disappointing to see almost all the restaurants featured here plan to serve sharks fin in their CNY menus. TOP, could you recommend several restaurants that will not be serving this endangered specimen on their CNY menus, please.

      1. Thanks. There has been ample scientific evidence on the endangered status of sharks and trade sanctions on shark and shark products over the years, yet restaurants in Singapore continue to ignore the red flags and blatantly serve shark fin. Making it available to consumers is already bad enough, promoting the dish takes the lack of responsibility to a completely new level. To the restaurants who care about keeping our oceans healthy and thriving with seafood for generations to come, you have my vote and my dollar for not serving shark fin so big thanks to Cherry Gardens, Majestic Bay, Yan, Crystal Jade, Makan@Jen and Providore. We will be dining with you for the CNY.
