Celebrate the Year of the Snake with Crystal Jade Symbolic Pen Cai Treasure Pot & New Nian Gau Flavours!

Food Review Chinese New Year is coming soon and have you decided on where to have your reunion dinner? Not sure about you, usually for me, we will go out for a simple reunion dinner nearby as we wanted to avoid the crowd and the long waiting time at the restaurant. Sometimes if we have enough time to spare, we will cook for reunion dinner and have it at home, but it can be quite tiring and causing alot of hassle, especially the cleaning up part -.-“ So what would be the best solution to this? If only i can enjoy awesome yummy food at the comfort of my home, without having to cook myself and make a mess in the kitchen? TAKEAWAY LOR! YES! the best solution is to takeaway from the restaurant and eat it at home! and i guess the best item to takeaway will be the Treasure Pot, also known as Pen Cai (盆菜) !
