Chinese New Year beckons right at the heels of Christmas. What better reason to gather with loved ones at Reunion dinner?
Since COVID-19 restrictions have limited numbers for dine-out groups, many dining establishments have launched takeaway and delivery sets to make reunion dinners at homes more convenient. This cuts down the need for early reservations, queue-ing and gives you the chance to host 8 guests in the comforts of your home. You can Lou Hei without all that background noise now.
2021’s Reunion meals will be especially sweet given the length of time extended families have not gathered due to the pandemic. Stay safe at home and choose to order in Reunion dinner takeaways or delivery instead. Less time getting busy in the kitchen, more time to bond with family!
Here are some highly-rated Chinese New Year Reunion dinner sets you can order.
