We were feeling a tad bit sad that Christmas has come to an end but then we remembered that the Chinese New Year is just around the corner. We are excited to usher in the year of Pig and for us foodies, Chinese New Year means one crucial thing: another round of intense feasting!
Food and reunion meals are an absolute must for Chinese New Year. While many people prefer to whip up a reunion meal by themselves, sometimes it is almost impossible to feed the sheer number of guests you have.
But there are plenty of reputable and reliable catering companies out there that can do the job for you. One of these companies is Stamford Catering, and they are a common name when you need suggestions for stellar buffet line-ups to satisfy the masses.

Tucked away in a little corner in Telok Blangah is what used to be a retreat bungalow owned by the Yemeni Alkaff family. Alkaff Mansion Ristorante provides a nice respite from the fast paced city areas in Singapore, perching on top of Telok Blangah Hill (used to be known as Washington Hill). This well-known location was once the centre of high society parties and other events, besides being a family home to the Alkaff family.
Since the mid 1990s, Alkaff Mansion Ristorante has been known to serve award-winning cuisine to patrons but ever since LHN Culinary Concepts took over the reigns in 2010, the restaurant finally restored its splendour and has become one of Singapore’s go-to dining spots and event venue for corporate, private events and weddings.
Here is what we enjoyed the most from Executive Chef Simone Depalmas’ intricately crafted menu, strongly influenced by his Italian roots.
Every year, we have people asking us, “which caterer should we go to for Chinese New Year parties? I want someone reputable and reliable because it is a yearly dinner and I cannot disappoint my guests!”
Yes, we heard you, and we share the same concern. The last thing we want when we organise a party is to have the caterer screw up our food and let our guests go hungry. A hungry man is an angry man, and may we add that feeding lousy food to a hungry man is a monstrous thing to do.
So we put our faith in Bellygood, TungLok’s catering arm, and know that our bellies will be very good and happy. The main reason why we love Bellygood is because of its affordability. Prices start from as low as S$10 to S$14 per person for a simple cocktail reception, whereas standard buffet packages range from only S$15 to S$20 per person.
More importantly, Bellygood Catering is halal certified. Our muslim friends will be able to enjoy the feast together with everyone. Need something in particular for your event? Bellygood will be more than happy to alter the menu and tailor-made it to your requirements.
Here’s sharing our early Lunar party and Bellygood Catering’s various Chinese New Year sets as well as Mini Party Sets that you can consider if you are still in search of a caterer for the upcoming parties.
We are also giving away Bellygood Caterer’s Party Set (worth S$288+ each) to 2 winners. Each party set can feed 8 to 10 guests, so you can invite your family and friends to celebrate Chinese New Year at your place this festive period. More details on how you can join the giveaway at the end of this post.
It is the time of the year again when our mailboxes would be greeted by endless questions from our readers, and one of the most common of them all? “Which caterer would you recommend for a private party?”
We used to not know how to reply such questions, until we found faith in Orange Clove - a proud winner of “Best Corporate Caterer” and the Overall Winner for Singapore Prestige Brand Award – Promising Brand Category. We’ve heard so much about them, and friends have always sang praises of their service and quality. We’ve sampled, and we now understand why they are a perennial favourite when it come to catering. Whether it is a corporate celebration or an intimate Christmas party with your family and loved ones, Orange Clove will make you the hero for your party and event, with its Christmas menu providing options that will fit every tastebud and budget.
Throwing a party for a big group and have yet to start on the planning? Not to worry because Orange Clove will come to the rescue and make you the hero for your party and corporate events. This year, Orange Clove has come up with three different Christmas menus that range from S$25/pax to S$45/pax.
From cocktail reception to Christmas parties, seminar luncheons, weddings and birthday celebrations, buffets and sit down dinners for your corporate events, there are many gatherings every year and what better way to unite people than to feed them well?
However, it can be a challenge trying to put everything together; those who have had to bear the responsibilities of organising an event would know the pain. And the biggest and most common problem is to find the one caterer that is reputable, reliable and has options to satisfy all palates.
Options are aplenty, and there are many players in the market. Orange Clove Catering (orangeclove.com.sg) is always a top-of-mind name, and having sampled their culinary skills lately, we are even more convinced that they are the ones to turn to when you need a caterer – whatever the occasion may be, they will offer the most ideal solutions and have you earn the title of a heroic host.
