Enjoy abundance throughout the year with incredible yu sheng deals at restaurants in Singapore.
You can’t have a proper Chinese New Year banquet without yu sheng on the table. Also known as Prosperity Toss, this colourful salad was created by 4 Singaporean chefs in 1964 to symbolise prosperity, good fortune, and success. The higher you toss the salad, the more prosperity you can expect in the year ahead!
The star of the dish is the slices of raw fish, which signifies abundance. It’s also what tends to make yu sheng rather expensive, especially if you’re dining at a restaurant.
We’re all for enjoying this auspicious appetiser without losing a fortune. Check out the restaurant deals below to get huge savings on yu sheng and other Chinese New Year goodies.
