Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year is one of the most important festivals among the Chinese community in Singapore. On the eve of Chinese New Year, family members will return home for a reunion dinner (团圆饭) – an annual feast and significant tradition to reaffirm love and togetherness with one another. A popular way of having reunion dinner during this time is the Steamboat reunion dinner. Family members will gather around a hot pot of bubbling broth filled with delicious ingredients, and everyone from young to old will enjoy the sumptuous dinner in a joyful spirit. The simmering steamboat represents more than just good food, as the gathering over the feast is also a symbolic way to strengthen family bonding, sharing happiness with one another and wishes for a bountiful year ahead.
