To celebrate the Year of the Monkey without breaking the bank, check out the most value-for-money Chinese New Year menu at Ah Hoi's Kitchen (located at Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore). The hotel has also very recently undergone a massive face-lift and refurbishment process and the place looks spectacular - check out my review of the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore's Club Room here!
12 at 12 Lunch
If you are looking for the most affordable lunch in a hotel, look no further because prices simply cannot get any lower than what Ah Hoi's Kitchen has to offer with the 12 at 12 Lunch promotion. From 12PM daily, Ah Hoi's will provide you with 12 delicious Chinese-style sharing dishes for just S$12 nett per person. That's right, 12 dishes for S$12 nett per person! Some dishes to watch out for in February 2016 are the double boiled herbal chicken soup, signature braised pork knuckle with Chinese mushrooms, braised duck with ground nuts and yummy crispy nian gao.
8 at 88 Huat! Dinner
Look beyond the cheesy sounding promotion and you will find a great dinner deal for four. The 8 at 88 Huat! Dinner offers an 8-course set dinner, enough to feed four diners at just S$88 nett. Throughout the month of February, diners will be able to select from two carefully-curated menus which include Champagne Pork Ribs with Crispy Ginger and Ah Hoi's Signature Salmon Yu Sheng. The signature yu sheng is crafted from a secret family recipe and over the years, it has evolved into a firm Lunar New Year favourite.
Do note that blackout dates apply for both the 12 at 12 and 8 at 88 offer on 7-9 February 2016 (inclusive). During this period, indulge in a reunion dinner with a choice from two Lunar Festive Dinners (both inclusive of the signature salmon Yu Sheng). The Prosperity Festive Set Dinner ($488 nett for 6 – 8 people) includes steamed codfish with mushroom and kim hua ham and double boiled chicken consomme with ginseng, matsutake mushrooms and conpoy. The Longevity Festive Set Dinner includes steamed grouper with light soya sauce and crispy garlic plus braised conpoy, crabmeat, fish maw, bamboo shoots and mushroom broth. Both sets include braised whole abalone with Chinese mushrooms, dried oyster and black moss.
Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore's move towards nett pricing is admirable and a much-desired one in Singapore. The hotel is also home to cheapest Perrier-Jouët Sunday Brunch in Singapore at just S$128 nett per adult!
