Chinese New Year reunions are going to feel different this Year of the Ox. Whether it’s because the malls, streets and homes won’t be buzzing with as much activity as the years before or because you’ll miss visiting relatives and friends outside of your immediate family, most of us won’t be able to shake off the feeling that something’s amiss.
Nevertheless, this shouldn’t stop us from celebrating the occasion with our nearest and dearest at home, or if new regulations permit, at our favourite dining venues – no matter how small a reunion. If anything, perhaps a prosperity toss and wishes of good health and fortune is just what we need to keep our chins up and our loved ones close. With that, here are some establishments in KL to get your yee sang and auspiciously curated meals from.
