The Triumph Yu Sheng featuring black truffle and black caviar, from Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Creative yu sheng that will have you over the Moooo-n this Chinese New Year

Originating from China’s southern Guangdong province, the humble raw fish salad yusheng went through different stages of transformation after it was brought to Singapore. Before the 1960s, yusheng in Singapore was typically available at hawker stalls that sold Cantonese porridge. Later on, this unassuming dish was elevated with the addition of vibrantly coloured vegetable shreds and tangy sauces. Today, these auspicious platters are ubiquitous on restaurant menus around Chinese New Year. Most people relish the tossing of this quintessential dish while shouting determinedly descriptive locutions of blessings. 

Each year, chefs compete with each other to deliver new interpretations to this familiar dish with creative innovations. Here’s a list of some of the most imaginative and sumptuous yusheng from popular Singapore restaurants that you can order for Chinese New Year 2021.
