Chinese New Year in Singapore is a major highlight in the city-state’s calendar. The streets come alive with luminous scarlet lanterns and traditional music, and celebrations centre largely around sharing meals with close family and friends.

The resplendent, colonial-style Capella Singapore on Sentosa Island is home to Cassia, one of the best Chinese fine-dining restaurants in town. From January 30 to February 15, you can feast on a special New Year menu of delicacies in the elegant Andre Fu-designed dining room. The Lou Hei prosperity salad is a dish specifically native to Singapore and not found in China. Consisting of thinly sliced tuna, salmon, vegetables, and ground peanuts, the salad is thought to usher in good luck. The ceremony commences with a large plate of shredded vegetables, and as each ingredient is added, auspicious sayings are uttered. Finally, each diner stands up to chime in and toss the ingredients in the air with chopsticks. The higher you toss, the greater your fortune. After your meal, relax with a cup of Chinese tea at Bob’s Bar overlooking the South China Sea, and contemplate what awaits you in the year of the horse.
