Start the Year of the Rabbit on a note of abundance with a feast at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore’s Jade, served from 3 January to 5 February 2023. Chinese Executive Chef Leong Chee Yeng says, “Lively and sociable, these lovable qualities of the rabbit reveal themselves in this year’s Jade Lunar New Year 2023 specialities, which will surely delight and charm everyone in the family.”
The quintessential starter is the Premium Gold Rush Yu Sheng, arranged into an endearing image of a white rabbit. Served with a choice of Norwegian smoked salmon or plant-based salmon, the fresh ingredients are elevated by champagne jelly, shallot oil and kumquat dressing, achieving a balance of rich and refreshing flavours.
The Gold Rush Yu Sheng makes a strong impression too. It is presented alongside a hand-drawn rabbit motif and a Chinese calligraphy greeting, written using five-spice powder—a signature finishing touch by Chef Leong.
The Gold Rush Yu Sheng is available in three portion sizes, priced from S$78* for the small portion. The Premium Year of the Rabbit Gold Rush Yu Sheng is priced at S$688* with a minimum three-day advance order. Both versions are served with a choice of Norwegian smoked salmon or plant-based salmon and are also available upon request at Town Restaurant and The Courtyard in The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
The Eight Delights Pot (S$88* per person) delivers a moreish pen cai experience in individual portions, each comprising an assortment of braised ingredients: abalone, fish maw, sea cucumber, flower mushrooms, dried scallop, pork tendon, Chinese cabbage and yam.
For larger groups, the Premium Braised Pen Cai (minimum five persons, S$98* per person) brims with a lavish bounty: ten-head South African whole abalone, diced giant grouper, fish maw, sea cucumber, dried scallops, braised whole pork knuckle, dried oysters, flower mushrooms, roasted duck, diced chicken, prawn, fresh bean curd stick, yam, lotus root, Chinese cabbage, leek, chestnut and pork tendon. A one-day advance order is required.
No traditional Lunar New Year feast is complete without fresh seafood. For starters, Chef Leong’s new Deep-fried ‘Honeycomb’ Hokkaido Scallop with Spiced Salted Egg Yolk (S$15* per piece) is encased within a crisp honeycomb-like batter, awakening the eyes and appetite.
For the main course, the Trio of Live Red Grouper (S$280* per fish) showcases the versatility of the fish in three ways: with a light garnish of minced ginger and spring onion; coated with a hawthorn sweet and sour sauce; and simmered into a fragrant rice wine fish bone soup. The wok-fried Radish Cake with Shajing Oyster in house-made X.O. Chilli Sauce (S$18* per person) rounds off the savoury fare on a satisfying note.
The repast concludes sweetly with Hot Cream of Almond with Bird’s Nest (S$42* per person), a luxurious take on the classic dessert, alongside adorable Rabbit-shaped Sesame and Peanut Muah Chee (S$8* for two pieces). This year’s medley of traditional petit fours includes the well-loved Steamed Osmanthus Nian Gao and Deep-fried Rose-scented Water Chestnut Cake (both S$8* for three pieces) that will leave a delicate, floral finish on one’s palate.
Jade’s Lunar New Year menus start from S$158* for the Family-style Set Menu (minimum of five persons) and S$98* per person for the Individual Set Menu.

The meal concludes sweetly with a dessert buffet, including jasmine tea poached pear, pulut hitam with coconut cream and an assortment of Lunar New Year goodies.
On the first two days of Lunar New Year, The Clifford Pier’s International Afternoon Tea Buffet takes festive indulgence to a new height.

The Fullerton Cake Boutique | 2 January to 5 February 2023
The Fullerton’s Lunar New Year takeaway collection is available for pre-orders from 1 December 2022, via shop.fullertonhotels.com and at The Fullerton Cake Boutique, located at both hotels. Customers can enjoy the Early Bird Special until 2 January 2023, at 25 percent off selected online pre-orders. Terms and conditions apply.
Along with the Great Treasures Pen Cai (S$688 nett, suitable for six persons) and Gold Rush Yu Sheng (S$158 nett, suitable for eight persons) available for takeaway, well-loved signatures make their return too: the best-selling Yam Paste Nian Gao Tarts (S$42 nett per box of nine); the savoury Fortune Radish Cake (S$42 nett, 800g); the Harmony Koi Fish Osmanthus Nian Gao (S$38 nett, 600g) and the Rose-scented Water Chestnut Cake (S$42 nett, 800g)—classic desserts refined with delicate floral notes.
Celebrating the full-fledged return of lion dances this year, Jade Executive Chef Leong introduces the Lion Dance Eight Treasures Cookies (S$52 nett per box of six). Handcrafted to resemble the head of a lion dance costume, each buttery shortbread cookie is generously filled with pineapple paste, white lotus paste, osmanthus, peanuts, white sesame seeds, melon seeds, pickled winter melon, and white peppercorn.
Executive Pastry Chef Siddharth Prabhu presents the Fortune Treasure Bowl (S$128 nett), specially crafted for sharing during Lunar New Year visits. Robed in red with a sprinkling of edible gold dust, the radiant dessert combines traditional ingredients for an outcome that is in turn nostalgic and captivating: dried longan, red dates, candied ginger, pistachio, wolfberry, pineapple mousse and orange cremeux, rounded off with the warm toffee-like notes of Gula Melaka.
Executive Pastry Chef Prabhu has also dreamed up a trio of single-portion cakes to delight relatives and friends while honouring tradition. Presented as the auspicious fruit, the Mandarin (S$12 nett) bursts with fragrant notes of mandarin curd and lychee mousse, layered with raspberry chiffon and almond frangipane. The Firecracker (S$16 nett) makes a loud greeting in red, filled with 70% dark chocolate mousse, hazelnut praline cremeux and crunchy feuilletine. Completing the trio is the Jasmine Yuzu Brew (S$15 nett), shaped as a delicate Chinese teapot. With its invigorating medley of yuzu and jasmine tea-infused mousse, grapefruit jelly and citrus financier, it pairs beautifully with a cup of tea.
In addition to the original flavour, The Fullerton Bak Kwa (S$68 nett, box of 12 pieces) is available in a new truffle flavour (S$88 nett, box of 12 pieces) this year, made using premium Brazilian hog shoulder. Marinated for over 24 hours in a unique blend of truffle oil and spices, the hand-sliced meat is grilled in the traditional two-stage method, beginning in a charcoal-fired oven over large bamboo trays. Sourced from the high mountains of China, the bamboo imparts a light earthy scent, balancing out the heavier charred aroma from the second stage, open-fire charcoal grilling. The well-marbled cut lends perfectly to the slow-cooking process—resulting in a tender and aromatic outcome, with the rich umami of truffle.
Ideal for business associates, the Abundance Hamper (S$398 nett) contains a delicious assortment for sharing, presented in a sturdy carrier bag: The Fullerton Bak Kwa (Truffle) gift box, Jade’s X.O. Chilli Sauce, almond cookies, pineapple nugget cookies, love letters, green pea cookies, sambal prawn rolls, and a bottle of The Fullerton Blend Pio Cesare Nebbiolo red wine.
