Tiger Kaya Buns, Chocolate Koi, And More Lunar New Year Limited Edition Offerings We’re Dying To Try

Ah, CNY. That time of the year when we collectively abandon our New Year’s resolution to eat healthier and lose weight. While we traditionally associate the season with bak kwa, yu sheng, and pineapple tarts, nowadays, every other F&B company – be it a fast-food restaurant or a café – is releasing exciting seasonal menus and specials to commemorate the holiday.

Here are some goodies that we’re just dying to try:

Janice Wong’s Chocolate Koi and Chocolate Coated Pineapple Tarts

Janice Wong’s pastry designs are a work of art, so if you’d like to impress your family and friends with some atas-looking offerings, this is the way to go. Despite its name, the hand-painted Chocolate Koi (pictured at the top) contains so much more than just chocolate – one bite, and you’ll encounter layers of crispy praline feuilletine and popping candy.

Chocolate Koi, $48 for a set of three
Chocolate Coated Pineapple Tart, $35 for a jar

We’re happy to report that the latter’s run has been extended until 15 February, so if you’ve ever wondered what an Asian-inspired lobster roll tastes like, now’s your chance.

Butter Bean Singapore’s O’Creamy Toast

CNY wouldn’t be complete without oranges, but let’s face it, by the time the season is over, we’re all pretty tired of eating them straight from the box (or from the pile on our parents’ dining room table).

Head on over to Butter Bean for another way to enjoy them!

Da Paolo Gastronomia’s Tiger Bread

It’s not every day that we get an Italian take on Lunar New Year food, so our mouths started watering at the sight of Da Paolo Gastronomia’s Tiger Bread, a sourdough version of Asian milk bread. The blonde dough is lightly flavoured with mandarin orange and saffron, while the chocolate stripes are infused with dark cocoa dough.

Tiger Bread ($8.80), available until 31 January 2022 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays

McDonald’s Prosperity Feast

What’s Lunar New Year without the McDonald’s Prosperity Feast? This year sees the return of the Prosperity Chicken Burger, the Prosperity Beef Burger, Prosperity Twister Fries, Peace McFizz, and the debut of the Strawberry Pie.

Prices start from $1.80. Find out more here
