If only we had a deli like the one in the last picture!

Slice of Heaven is open over the Chinese New Year. You may have seen this information hidden among the long list of restaurants that are closed. Slice of Heaven, however is not a restaurant. It is a cafe, bakery and wine bar and as such will be serving over fresh baked foods, great coffees and wines over the Chinese New Year.

Yeah, I thought it was strange that Slice of Heaven and Salvador's Coffee House were both listed as restaurants.

Very useful list though. Thank you.

Useful list, thanks.
I'm actually glad I will be leaving KM for a few days since almost everything will be closed.

The article title has been changed.

Thanks for the info! However, Carrefour on Longquan rd was open today :)

Will there be a similar list for this year posted soon? it's been very helpful in the past.

Moondog proving yet again that it's the best, staying open the same as always, no pussying out cos of some new year bullshiit
