Reunion dinner has always been something I look forward to since I was a kid. It was the only time most of us get to indulge in traditional delicacies and snacks/chocolates/sweets without scolding from our parents! Traditionally, it is believed that food served during reunion dinner is an auspicious sign. The more premium the food, the greater the wealth the family is going to experience in the new year. With so many dine-out options available for reunion dinner, it is difficult to choose what is best for you and your family.

4. Jinji Teochew Steamboat
If you are not someone that enjoys having 8-10 course meal, Steamboat is always a good idea. To me, one of the elements that make a good steamboat is the soup base. Jinji Teochew Steamboat is somewhere I find myself returning to because of their high-quality soup base that has been consistent since day one. The soup is boiled with chicken and shark bones over 5 hours to achieve a milky flavorful base for the steamboat items. Some of my must orders are their Pork Dumplings, Special Squid Paste
