Yu Sheng (鱼生) Lo Hei "Huat Huat Huat" with Fraser Centrepoint Malls

People who know me personally, knows that I have a very unique tradition in my own family, started by none other than yours truly. Every year my family will partake in the raising of chopsticks as we indulge in Yu Sheng, or Lo Hei during the Chinese New Year period. Our family, including the 4 kiddos will have it from the eve till the 15th day of CNY without missing a single day, believing that it brings good luck for the whole family! 

Although the dish was really meant to be consumed on the 7th Day of Chinese New Year Day or what is commonly known as Ren Ri (人日), it was not long before Singaporeans and Malaysians started having it every other day during the festive period! Who would mind having more luck anyway?

One should be able to find Yu Sheng from any reputable Chinese restaurant or "Zhi Char" stall all the way through to the 15th day of CNY (if they are open for business). But I am sure you are aware that Yu Sheng is also readily available at your favourite restaurant chains, be it Japanese or Western cuisine right? In any case, I have compiled some that you can readily find in some of the Fraser Centrepoint Malls -

All information accurate at the time of publishing, and every effort was made to indicate if the service charges or GST were included (although I had probably missed out some, my bad!)

The true enjoyment of having Lo Hei, is eating it together with your friends and family, and shouting out loud "huat ah!" as you toss the ingredients high up in the air. Having delicious Lo Hei would be a bonus! The smiles, the laughter and the positive energy, is what makes everyone lucky, and make this a truly special dish indeed. And with this, I wish everyone and all, a PROSPEROUS and WONDERFUL new year ahead! HUAT AH!
