PEONY JADE | The Keppel Club outlet has a big list of new Chinese New Year dishes (as they do every year), but our favourite is their take on the traditional must-have for Chinese New Year feasts: an 'Abounding Riches' golden suckling pig stuffed with glutinous rice, slow-roasted over charcoal fire. This is served per piece ($8.88 each) or as a whole 5kg pig ($238.88 serves 12). Orders need to be placed at least a day in advance. Available from 18 January to 14 February. Alternatively, if you'd rather have the meal in the restaurant, book here.

BLUE LOTUS | Though this yu sheng (part of set menus, which are $88 to $288 per person) has to be had on premises, this contemporary Chinese eating house’s Chinese New Year takeaways include a traditional lotus lo mai gai (steamed glutinous rice with Chinese sausage, $38+), but the pièce de résistance is a glazed and roasted, whole suckling piglet ($188+). Order these for your at-home reunion dinners, but be sure to place your orders three days in advance. Available till 14 February.
