Reunion dinner is distinctly the most anticipated and important part of the Chinese New Year celebration.
The occasion, also commonly called Tuan Yuan Fan in Mandarin, describes a yearly tradition of family members gathering around a round table and bond over a sumptuous feast. It usually is a loud and hearty affair, from lively conversations, to heated game playing between family members and relatives, and finally to prying children eager to receive their share of angpaos in the morning.
However, this year will be a different and much quieter celebration than before with the visitation and travel restrictions in place. Even so, we should not feel discouraged, instead let’s count our blessings and indulge in our reunion dinners in a more intimate setting – with immediate family members staying under one roof or connect back home virtually if you’re a distance away.
If preparing and cooking for CNY feast sounds a little underwhelming for you this year, various set menus for takeaway or delivery are readily available from IPC for a cosy reunion at home. Here are the 5 different types of reunion dinner choices to pick from (maybe even for the entire 15 days of CNY).
Toss to new heights this CNY with Absolute Thai’s Thai Fresh Yee Sang. It comprises of fresh fruits and vegetables, then topped off with their tangy homemade tamarind sauce for a Thai-inspired Yee Sang for your reunion dinner. This Yee Sang is hassle-free and a great appetizer addition for families that are preparing their own home cook reunion dishes.
