4. Tiger sugee cookies (S$12.80)

You'll find these tiger sugee cookies at DJ Bakery for S$12.80 per bottle.

The bakery labels the new item as "100 per cent homemade."

We spotted these at the Thomson Plaza outlet, and it appears that the cookies are currently not for sale online.

Peony Jade currently has a pop-up booth at Takashimaya's CNY fair, in addition to their restaurant at Keppel Club.

There's also an online ordering system, and while we do see a number of CNY items, the Tiger Yee Sang does not appear to be available at time of writing.

The site also warns of the inevitable delivery delays due to the demand on the eve, so take heed, probably.

In any case, cool presentation, no harm looking at photos of it ¯ \_(ツ)_/¯

Update on Jan 11: A spokesperson for Peony Jade has confirmed that the dish is available for ordering. One can do so by calling their restaurant managers at 6276 9138.

ii) Golden Peony

The second yu sheng is Golden Peony’s, featuring a sugar tiger perched on the Chinese salad.

Toss up a combination of hamachi (yellowtail) sashimi, snow crab, tiger prawns at a pretty price of S$118++ for five pax.

This is available from Jan. 17 - Feb. 15.

Besides dine-in at the restaurant in Conrad Centennial hotel, the yu sheng is also available for pick-up or delivery.
