The first day of Chinese New Year falls on 10 February this year. But before that, it’s time to decide on the menu for your reunion dinner, which traditionally takes place on the eve of the Lunar New Year. For those who prefer to dine at home, this delectable array of takeaway reunion dinner options let you and your family welcome the Year of the Dragon without any of the hassle. From sumptuous seafood feasts to tantalising treasure pots, these curated sets offer a convenient way to usher in good fortune and happiness for the year ahead.

KEK Seafood’s Auspicious Fortune Pot Set

Keng Eng Kee (KEK) Seafood is well known for its Signature Moonlight Horfun and Coffee Pork Ribs. A mainstay in the local dining scene since the 70s, it opens its third outlet this month at SAFRA Punggol (its second outlet is at SAFRA Tampines), just in time for the Chinese New Year celebrations. But if you prefer to dine in the comfort of home, reunion set menus for 5 or 10 diners are also available for takeaway.

We’re eyeing KEK Seafood’s Auspicious Fortune Pot Set ($468). Designed for 10 diners, it’s a complete meal showcasing the Fortune Pot, which features premium ingredients such as 10-head abalone, scallops, fish maw, sea cucumber, and more. The set also comes with Tobiko Seafood Ee-Fu Noodles and Fortune Yusheng with baby abalone for everyone’s favourite prosperity toss.
