CNY must-have.

Chinese New Year is not the same without bak kwa, although the variety of options can make it a little overwhelming.

We've therefore compiled a list of nine popular bak kwa brands with their prices and accessibility listed, so that you can come to a decision easier.

Prices are also arranged in descending order (i.e. most expensive on the top).

Note that prices for some of these brands may change as the date draws closer to Chinese New Year, due to demand for the product.
