6 Delicious Treats To Try This Chinese New Year

We bet you'll definitely want these goodies on your table this festive season

Just when you’ve successfully shed the weight you gained over the holidays, another major feasting season comes around: Chinese New Year. But just because you’ve been on a juice cleanse doesn’t mean you have to forgo all the goodies—all you have to do is choose wisely. And by wisely we mean treating yourself to only the finest tarts made with quality ingredients and natural flavours (we all know artificial sugars and heavy seasoning are key reasons why our abs haven’t surfaced); overindulging in yusheng, which is safe to equate to a salad, elevated with slivers of succulent fish, abalone or lobster (just cut down on the sauce); and being very picky at the buffet—select only the best, be dainty with your servings, chew slowly, and you’ll be fully satisfied in no time.

Here are six of our favourites for a hearty (and healthier) reunion dinner with a twist:

1. Nutritious Bird’s Nest and Pear Yu Sheng at Summer Palace, Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel ($148)
