This has got to be the best reunion dinner we have had all these years for Chinese New Year. The restaurant was well-lit and spacious, the food was not only tasty but they were also very fresh — the prawn shells actually stuck to their flesh which meant they were really fresh. From the way the yusheng was topped off with fried enoki mushroom to the sharksfin being presented in fragrant young coconut shells to the skeletal pomfret looking like a piece of art to the glutinous rice and abalone being served in baby pumpkins, each dish tasted as good as they looked. To end the evening, we had a choice of two desserts, mochi and glutinous rice balls and aloe vera with dried longan. It was truly a meal to remember and so very appropriate as a reunion dinner meal for Chinese New Year.
I did a CNY series last year for 15 days of the Chinese New Year, beginning with the Eve. You are welcomed to view the series again. In it, I talked about why certain foods are served during Chinese New Year and what they represent. For convenience, I have linked the series here by day again. I suggest you view them by the day, rather than all at once.
The food that was served during the reunion dinner was served with a certain purpose in mind — to usher in wealth, family unity, goodwill and success in all our endeavours. So, here’s wishing all my readers, Chinese or otherwise, a Happy (Chinese) New Year to one and all! May you be blessed with wealth, health and may you prosper in every way!
