Planning a reunion dinner for Chinese New Year 2021? Here are the top budget-friendly CNY lunch/dinner deliveries and pick-ups in the Klang Valley. Each of these feasts will cost you less than RM50 per person.
Many Malaysians are planning to organise smaller-scale Chinese New Year reunion dinners this year – in accordance with the latest CNY standard operating procedures (SOP), which was recently announced by the government. To curb the spread of COVID-19, reunion dinners are only allowed among family members living in the same house, while visits and cross-border travel aren’t permitted.
So on February 11, we’ll most likely be spending the CNY reunion dinner with immediate family members or housemates. For many of us, our parents, grandparents and relatives are only reachable via video chat this CNY, but we can still make this festive season a memorable occasion – by starting the celebrations with an affordable yet fulfilling reunion dinner set that can be delivered to our home, or picked up safely.
Here, we take a look at some of the best budget-friendly reunion dinner packages in the Klang Valley, which cost less than RM50 per person. These meals are also suitable for lunch and dinner sessions throughout CNY, as they’ll be available for order until the end of February 2021.
