For our go-getter Roosters, the Year of the Ox is about making major decisions. Everything will play out for you only if you redouble your efforts, focus on your path and strategize for your future. To avoid 2021 blues, you should gravitate towards blue hues as well as gold. Café Siam LKF has the perfect meal waiting for you: indulge in a golden Pad Thai with Prawns and wash it down with their one of a kind Singha Soda, naturally dyed in a royal blue by butterfly pea flower essence. Also, no one leaves Café Siam without trying their Sticky Black and White Rice with Mango!

The stars are aligned in your favour this year, Dogs. New opportunities will surface in 2021 or you to implement new plans and ideas, both in your professional and personal life. A little extra luck won’t hurt though! Since your auspicious direction is south, why not head to the south of the United Kingdom with Beef and Liberty? Founded upon the concept of beef-steak clubs in 18th century London, Beef and Liberty promises the peak patty experience. The classic cheese burger is an obvious choice, but to spice up your year, go for the black pepper!

Pigs should brace themselves for plenty of ups and downs this coming year. While you will receive a lot of love, you must be mindful of your health. When you dine, steer yourself towards healthier options that are in your lucky colours yellow and brown. Healthy Chicken LKF has got you covered with their fresh and delicious Chicken Whole Leg. If you’re looking for an afternoon snack, change up your usual oil drenched chicken nuggets with their air-fried Plant-based Chicken Nuggets!

The Year of the Ox will go a lot smoother for our Rats than last year. You have the space to be more ambitious and you will have the necessary means to turn your dreams into plans. One of your auspicious numbers this year is 2, so head to Ho Lee Fook for their signature Yin Yang for Two for some bonus fortune, and as a reminder to find balance in your life as you work to surpass your limits this year.
