Luxurious Rice Dumplings for Dragon Boat Festival 2024

This year, the Dragon Boat Festival or Duan Wu Jie (端午节) falls on Monday, 10th June. As Singapore gears up for thrilling boat races and traditional festive events, we look forward to the luxurious renditions of rice dumplings that chefs across Singapore will be whipping up and the exciting new twists they are adding to the traditional favourites.

A delicious way to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival (also called the Dumpling Festival in Singapore) is by indulging in exquisite rice dumplings (or Zong Zi (粽子) or bak chang) from some of Singapore’s finest Chinese restaurants. These offerings represent a perfect blend of tradition, innovation and luxurious presentation. Unwrapping the bamboo and lotus leaves to reveal new delectable treasures within is becoming a Singaporean tradition in itself. Order early to enjoy Early Bird Discounts.

For Dragon Boat Festival 2024, Chinese Executive Chef of Jade, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is presenting the Jade Classics Rice Dumpling Collection with the debut of a new liquor-infused flavour, alongside three nostalgic flavours inspired by Singapore’s heritage cuisine.

Chef Leong Chee Yeng’s newest creation, the Moutai Pork and Dried Scallop Rice Dumpling with Chinese Ham and Mushroom, delivers a lavish experience befitting the occasion. The pork belly filling is marinated with premium Moutai white liquor for 48 hours, infusing the succulent meat with a distinctive aroma and complexity, tinged with a hint of smokiness.

This year’s locally inspired rice dumplings include two returning flavours — the Blue Pea Nyonya Rice Dumpling and the Hokkien Salted Egg Yolk Rice Dumpling. An ode to Peranakan cuisine, the new Red Bean Gula Melaka Rice Dumpling caps off the celebration on an auspiciously sweet note, with smooth red bean paste gently sweetened with the rich caramel-like notes of Gula Melaka.

Those seeking a healthier and no less sumptuous vegetarian option would enjoy Jade’s returning Truffle and Trio Mushroom Five-grain Rice Dumpling.
