[CNY 2019] Eight colourful and auspicious Yu Sheng platters to try this Chinese New Year

January 29, 2019

Chinese New Year 2019 is but one week away! Have you completed all your CNY shopping and other CNY errands? One Chinese New Year tradition that must not be missed is the tossing of yusheng with family, friends and colleagues, aka lohei! The Chinese believe this is a very auspicious way to welcome the new year. Even if you are not a believer, it cannot be denied that this is a very fun activity to participate in, be you young or old. The aim is to toss it high while still keeping it within the platter! Check out my video at the end of this post to see how toddler Edward reacted to his first lohei! Priceless!

Anyway, here are 8 places where you can get yusheng in Singapore. Bonus one at the back too! Huat Ah!!!

1. Pan Pacific Hotel – Hai Tien Lo

6. Yan Cantonese Cuisine

Yan - Kaleidoscope of Prosperity Shun-De Style

Yan – Kaleidoscope of Prosperity Shun-De Style

If you’ve never liked yu sheng because you don’t like the taste of raw salad, this might just change your mind. Thanks to the mountainous amount of crispy fried vermicelli, Yan’s yu sheng tastes more savoury than others. Even the yusheng sauce is of a more savoury kind. And if really in doubt, fish for the bak kwa pieces that are added. The yusheng will be available one of the courses in 6 set menus offered for CNY (ranging from $128++ to $278++ per person).

7. Poke Doke

Poke Doke Yu Sheng

Hotel restaurants are not the only options when it comes to yusheng. Who’s to say poke outlets shouldn’t jump on the bandwagon? And for good reason too since they specialise in raw fish and salad? Well if there’s one thing, you are guaranteed a lot of raw fish if you order from Poke Doke. Check out the amount of fish cubes in that yusheng! Three sizes available, ranging from $38.80 — $88.80. You can order online too.

8. Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng

Din Tai Fung Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng

Din Tai Fung is another fuss-free place to have yu sheng. There are many outlets all over Singapore and you don’t need to gather a huge number of people. Their standard salmon yu sheng at $32.80 is good for 2-3pax (or deluxe at $48.80 for 4-6 pax) , so you need only drag a partner or friend along to start tossing. You can even jazz up the yu sheng with ”top-ups”, such as fried salmon skin ($4.80), pine nuts ($2.80), smoked unagi ($9.80) etc. UOB cardmembers get 10% off for any purchase of the yusheng. Din Tai Fung does not take in reservations from 19 Jan – 19 Feb 2019 (both dates inclusive), so when you feel like having your yu sheng fix, just hop to the nearest outlet!

My first time doing lohei at home! @Edward365’s first time too! I must say it was a very enjoyable experience. Every year we simply dispense with this tradition since it’s additional costs, but after this round I really feel like doing it again! . Scroll to the videos and have your sound up if you wanna see an ang moh preparing the yusheng, and a person with damn jialat Chinese having to say all the auspicious words. And Edward at the end saying don’t cover the yusheng! . Thank you @putien_sg for this takeaway yusheng! It was much enjoyed and we all had seconds. I had 3rds. . Enter my giveaway if you want to win a small yusheng for yourself! Scroll to previous picture a few days ago.
