5 Better Yee Sangs to 'Lou' This Chinese New Year

Yee sang or yusheng or lo hei is never considered something you look forward to eating. You look forward to the group tossing session and you nibble on the crispy bits once it's done. Most of it is thrown away, but not before the fish mongers in your group eats every pathetic slice of raw salmon that turned this RM5 dish into a RM48 delicacy. Well, the time for throwaway yee sang is at hand with the new-age of discerning foodies turning this novelty nuisance into a delicious delight. 

#1 Pretty on Plate x The Bowls 

The savoury and sweet options respectively. (Image:
We wonder if they meant 'pretty onz plate' or 'pretty, on plate', or 'pretty on a plate' – sorry for the digression – look, how pretty! You may order these pretty creations straight from The Bowls and all orders require two days to process. In-store pick up is located at The Bowls Setapak, 46G, Plaza Usahawan Genting Klang. Here's a picture that describes the ingredients of the yee sang so we don't have to. Just swap out the salmon for the delicous sounding 'Japanese Fusion Chashu'.
