You may not realise it, but Chinese New Year is less than a month away. The lunar new year decorations in Chinatown are up and Lim Chee Guan bak kwa outlets are doing roaring business once again. Lim Chee Guan has stopped doing delivery and you should soon see the familiar long lines of people waiting patiently to buy the prized bak kwa. The Signature Sliced Pork Bak Kwa was $58.00 per kg as at 29 December 2019 ($66 as at 14 Janaury 2020); and the price may increase further as CNY gets closer.
Miraku 味楽 is a new sushi restaurant in China Square Central near Raffles Place and Shenton Way. Like many good sushi places, it is small, intimate and with limited seats around a counter. The only problem with these types of restaurants is that they tend to serve only expensive omakase meals. New sushi restaurant Miraku tempted us through the door with an amazing value 13 course sushi lunch priced at $38++.
