Who’s Spending RMB388,888 On A CNY Dinner?

Spring Festival is the most important holiday in China. Every year, millions of migrant labors travel across the country in order to arrive home on time for the family reunion dinner on Chinese New Year Eve. Instead of the home cooked meal the majority of rural area families eat, most families in big cities opt for a care-free food binge in restaurants and hotels. An ordinary Nian Ye Fan (CNY Eve dinner) costs anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand Reminbi depending on the venue. Recently, a special Nian Ye Fan menu offered by a restaurant in Suzhou attracted the attention of Chinese media and millions of Chinese netizen’s.

This uber-luxurious Nian Ye Fan menu offers 10 hot dishes including endangered spices and rare ingredients like “braised supreme abalone in oyster sauce,” “braised white truffle with shark’s fin,” “boiled honeycomb with bird’s nest,” and “super grade black caviar with Toro.” On top of that, the restaurant also provides stretch-Hummer pick-up service, Suzhou embroidery and Pingtan (a form of storytelling and ballad singing performed in the Suzhou dialect) performances as well as a one night stay at the presidential suite in the Suzhou Crowne Plaza. The total price has been marked up to a whopping RMB595,160 and even the final discounted price to the public is as high as RMB388,888.
