The Chinese reunion dinner / lunch is usually held on the eve of the Lunar New Year. It is a time when all family members gather to have a meal just before the new year. The reunion dinner in Singapore is a huge spread, often including more expensive foods like abalone and scallops. Having a steamboat at home for reunion dinner is also common, instead of cooking up some dishes. While more families are opting to have their reunion meals at restaurants, many still choose to prepare the meal and gather at home.
