Chinese New Year is coming earlier in 2023, which means for all the unmarried people out there, you will be getting your angbaos earlier.
Of course, Chinese New Year is not just about collecting angbaos, but spending a good time with your family over a scrumptious feast.
Here are some of the best Chinese restaurants in Singapore to have your reunion dinner in 2023. Remember, it is always better to make your bookings early because the early bird catches the worm.
Feng Xiang Bak Kut Teh

With Chinese New Year around the corner, they launched their Prosperity Treasure Pot (Pen Cai), Prosperity Spring Set, and their Prosperity Smoked Salmon YuSheng.
The Prosperity Treasure Pot (S$228 for five people) consists of premium ingredients including abalone, sea cucumber, and Canadian scallops. The gravy is stored in a separate thermal flask so it is kept warm.

We call it the OG Chinese restaurant in Singapore since it has been operating for over 40 years. It is located on the 7th floor of Block 54 Chin Swee Road, which can form queues down the HDB staircase during its peak hours.
