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.
