Did you know there are certain dishes believed to bring you good luck? To make sure you and your love ones have fruitful days ahead, honestbee has gathered all the best merchants in and around Chinatown, to bring you its lucky dishes- and more!
The Chinese New Year gives everyone the opportunity to start with a clean slate filled with hope and positivity for the year ahead, whether it be in career, health or finances. It has been tradition to welcome it with a grand celebration along with an abundance of dishes to bring everyone good luck for the coming year.
Legend has it the more dumplings you eat during the new year celebration, the more money you can make in the new year. And while wealth is something everyone would want to attain, dumplings from Decs, Wai Ying, Shi Lin and Bai Niang are available on the app to bring us closer to our fortune this year. To hoping this year will start and end in success, restaurants like Lugang Cafe, Tuan Tuan and Wang Fu brings you steamed fish, a dish believed to bring in prosperity. Another belief is the golden cylindrical shape of spring rolls depict gold bars, equivalent to bringing in a lot of wealth, and while this is believed to be a myth, there’s no harm in trying and filling your tummies with those from Bain Nian Tang Bao. Noodles are well-known to symbolize longevity, in fact any birthday celebration isn’t complete without it, so go ahead and order your favourite noodle dishes from Ling Nam and Ersao too.
To satisfy your sweet cravings, there are certain fruits like kiat kiat and pomelo which attract fullness and wealth, and you may readily purchase them in bulk from S&R, Farmers Market, Isetann and Ultramega Supermarket. Consumption of niang nao or glutinous rice cake is also believed to bring you a higher income or bring you job promotion. If you’ve been eyeing on that for awhile, you may get yours from Holland. And lastly, make celebrations more sweet and bring togetherness to the family by wrapping up the celebration with Eng Bee Tin, bringing you your favourable tangyuan, hopia, tikoy and more Chinese delicacies!
Aside from the lucky dishes, honestbee brings you more fortune as they also carry lucky charms and feng shui items from New Victory Trading. Now there’s no need to go out of your way to purchase your lucky pig figurines, chinese lanterns and angpao as honestbee can deliver them all to your doorstep!
