It’s that time of year again! With the festive season just around the corner, various fast food restaurants have come up with Chinese New Year menu items to tempt your taste buds.
Whether you just want to check if your favourite fried chicken place has come out with anything new, or are looking to order in some extra food while visiting, we’ve got you covered.
11 Chinese New Year Menu Items To Treat Your Tastebuds –
1. McDonald’s Prosperity Burger, Twister Fries and Peach Tarts
This popular favourite is back in stores! I for one am happy to see the Chinese New Year exclusive Twister fries back at McDonalds. And those who love their peppery sauces will love the chicken or beef burgers’ almost-spicy, tangy sauce.
Get their Prosperity Feast set at S$9.50 and you’ll also receive free red packets from McDonalds! It’s not exactly a Happy Meal toy, but I guess we’re all adults now, huh. Pro-tip: If you’ve forgotten to wrap an extra red packet for your nieces or nephews, just head to the nearest McDonald’s drive-through immediately.
You can get the Prosperity Beef or Prosperity Chicken Burger at $7.85 and the Prosperity Fest Set at S$9.50 from McDonalds.
2. Pezzo’s Prosperity Smoked Salmon Pizza and Durian Kaya Pizza
Singapore is a nation of durian lovers. And kaya is a popular spread unique to Singapore and Malaysia. Pezzo has put both onto one pizza to create a uniquely Singaporean flavor.
While the Kaya Durian Pizza is more of a dessert dish, the new Prosperity Smoked Salmon Pizza can be a whole meal! Topped with smoked salmon, creamy avocado slices, bright tomatoes, healthy yogurt and melted cheese, the Prosperity Smoked Salmon Pizza is a wonderful mix of complementary flavours to delight your tastebuds. Apart from lending a creamy texture, the avocado also balances out the bold flavours of the salmon with its freshness.
The new pizzas will be selling at $5.90 per slice, and $29.90 per pan at Pezzo.
3. Pizza Hut’s Ji Li Crab Pizza
Taste the ocean with this seafood-infused pizza from Pizza Hut! This pizza, which takes influence from the famous Singaporean dish, Chilli Crab, includes snow crab sticks, shrimps, and cherry tomatoes topped with tangy chilli crab sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Additionally, you can add-on the Alfredo Baked Salmon and Treasure Platter as sides. The Treasure Platter even includes the traditional “Ngoh Hiang” wrapped in crispy beancurd skin.
The Ji Li Crab Pizza is available from Pizza Hut for S$25.90.
4. KFC’s Parmesan Truffle Chicken
Truffle-lovers rejoice! KFC Singapore has rolled out this item islandwide, offering an untraditional but tasty item to add to order when your relatives visit over New Year’s.
