Love your fortune pot? Hotels and restaurants in Singapore are pulling out the stops to present the best pen cai for eager diners.  If you prefer something a little different, try Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant’s Prosperity Pen Cai with Fugu Udon Noodles ($438 for four to six persons, $688 for eight to 10 persons). This luscious feast brims with indulgent ingredients, including auspicious delicacies like abalone, fish maw and sea cucumber, resulting in an addictive, thick nourishing broth. What makes it extra special is that you can complete your meal with fugu noodles, prepared with fresh fugu (directly imported from the capital of pufferfish, Shimonoseki) fish paste. Add the noodles to the rich broth to soak up all the goodness, and enjoy it steamboat style. Place your order three days in advance. It is available at all outlets. For more information check out
