For us here at Glitz, there are precious few moments when we feel prouder to call ourselves Malaysians than during the festive season of Chinese New Year, where cultural diversity beautifully intertwines. Our favourite highlight of the season is the tradition of tossing yee sang, a symbolic dish that represents prosperity and togetherness, regardless of your race and religion. The Lunar New Year truly is a celebration that transcends boundaries and reminds us of the strength found in our diversity.

If you’re still seeking the perfect spot for your reunion dinner this year, here are our top festive menus for Chinese New Year 2024 to ensure a delectable and prosperous meal.
