CNY is just around the corner and we all know what that means - unceasing house visits with good $$ gains, pig-out sessions and HUGE family reunion dinners. But the latter also means dishing out the dollas for a decent 4-course meal and ceasing to enjoy your ‘well-earned’ angbao money.
But don’t fret, for good fortune is on your way with these sweet festive deals - all thanks to your DBS/POSB card. Dine at the island’s best for cheap without risking a mediocre dinner spread that’ll incur Ah Mah’s wrath.

With your DBS/POSB card, take advantage of discounted fusion dishes such as Braised Ramen with Truffle Oil or Fresh Alaskan Crab in their Yu Sheng. Celebrate the Lunar New Year with a backdrop of warm jazz and fairy lighting at Hotel Fort Canning - it’ll be a reunion dinner you won’t forget.

Cantonese cuisine doesn’t always have to look like the traditional dumpling/soup noodle fare we see along the streets of Hong Kong. In fact, Mitzo does their Canto food with a bit of modern flare and aims to reinvent traditional Chinese dining with insta-stunners such as their Black Truffle Crispy Roasted Duck or signature BBQ Pork.
For a refreshing take on CNY reunion dinners, Mitzo’s unique Kingfish Yu Sheng with Lychee Caviar and Spring Blossom artisanal cocktail are sure wins. Your Ah Mah might budge a little too with the 15% off on their CNY set menus and take away using your POSB/DBS card.
Have your feast surrounded by the mosaic-esque interior of Mitzo that’ll add some modern flare to your ordinary yearly reunion dinner. Hey, if all else fails, you could use the unique decor as a conversation evader when prying aunts ask too many questions.
5. Tim Palace
