Everything is revolving around the upcoming Lunar New Year festivities this week.

If you’ve not planned where to have your reunion (or CNY) dinner, you can try calling all the restaurants you know for available dinner reservation slots. But you can be pretty sure most of the reservations are full or at the very most, you’ll have to take the latest seating, which could mean you’ll have dinner at 8 plus or 9pm.

Why not order your dinner to be self-collected or even delivered to you instead and have a feast in the comfort of your home?

Here are 3 menus you can order, from 3 different cuisines, to throw a traditional yet fancy dinner party.


Cantonese goodness

What you’ll get: Four plentiful dishes including the all-time favourite Salmon Yusheng and the restaurant’s speciality dish, the Samsui Ginger Chicken with Two Treasures. You’ll get your fill of tasty carbs with the Traditional Steamed Rice with Six Gems, while the star of the dinner has to be the Seafood Treasure Pot with US Lobster that comes perfectly plated (with the lobster shell on top) in a clay pot you can keep.

Order at, or call 66459345. Pickup from various Soup Restaurant locations, or delivery charge of $25 applies.
