Abalone is a must-have seafood item for special festive occasions, especially Chinese New Year, as it symbolises good fortune and abundance.

However, it is also known to be expensive.

Supermarkets such as Cold Storage and Sheng Siong are offering abalone at affordable prices, between S$0.90 to S$1.50 per piece, so everyone can enjoy this luxury ingredient without breaking the bank.

Cold Storage

Cold Storage is offering frozen-thawed half shell abalone at a discounted price of S$1.50 per piece (U.P. S$2.50).
