Feel like taking a breather from the festivities for a couple of hours? This is just the spot to relax, have a drink of your choice, and stare at the resevoir. Noone here will ask you when you're getting married, promise. *Only drinks & limited Festive Oriental Menu available, open 2-10pm


Artistry is keeping their doors open this festive season, serving CNY-inspired dishes that sound awesome. Think Chilli Crab Burger, Cheesy Chicken & Bak Kwa Burger, and an intriguing Buttermilk & Bourbon Vanilla Panna Cotta in Mandarin Orange Yoghurt Soup! *18-20 Feb: 9.30am - 3.00pm

Open till late, this is just the spot for a little "after-party" -- with some truffle fries of course! Indulge in a decadent chocolate cake if you haven't had your fill of sweets for the week.

Drop by this cafe in town for a lovely slice of red velvet or strawberry shortcake, and wash it down with a well-balanced chai tea latte! If you're looking for something savoury, they do a deceivingly simple Ham and Cheese Toastie that is bound to satisfy.

This CNY period might be the best time to score a table at this ever-popular cafe. Pimp your breakfast, and be sure to get their house-smoked salmon! Don't leave without trying a dessert too.

Come here for a good cuppa with the best pillowy-soft Tau Sar Pau you can find, before heading out to the next relative's home! Alternatively, start your day here with a hearty breakfast.

*Closed on 18th Feb

From fish and chips to burgers to hot dogs, I Am is where you want to be with your friends this long weekend! Finish your meal with a lovely slice of Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel.

*Closed on 18th Feb


Always hesistant to queue at CMCR on weekends? Well, you might want to take a chance and hope the queues are shorter during this festive period. Go for their Turkish Breakfast, or their Croissant Croque Monsiuer, or the Braised Ox Cheeks Eggs Ben (yes it's hard to decide)!

*Closed on 18th Feb

Flock to this spot for a comforting Pork & Gruyere sandwich, or a dead-simple, spot-on plate of scrambled eggs and toast!

*Closed on 19th Feb

To celebrate the new year (even if you're not Chinese), have a Chicken Bak Kwa sandwich in this friendly, whimsical cafe in Little India. The old school, playful vibe is bound to put you in a good mood!
