The main rule of yee sang is simple—the higher the toss, the more “ong” your year will be. Throughout the tossing ceremony, you should also be saying prosperous statements. If you’re not articulate with your new year blessings, continuously saying “huat ah” works wonders.

But after making that big mess in your dining room, wouldn’t you want to make sure the yee sang is actually delicious?

Given, yee sang is arguably already a very delicious dish. Yee sang, which is also known as yu sheng, lou sang, or the prosperity toss, traditionally features raw fish, shredded vegetables, as well as a sauce. Together, these create a delicious salad-like dish.

However, why not give your yee sang a special twist? Here are some Malaysian brands in the Klang Valley offering unique yee sang dishes this year.

1. ANTE: Ham yee sang

Up the ante with ANTE’s Jamón Serrano Loh Sang. Dubbed a “pork dish specialist”, ANTE has been releasing their take on yee sang for a few years now. Their version features slices of jamón serrano ham, a Spanish-style slow aged ham, imported from the Iberian Peninsula.

Located in 1 Utama, ANTE told us that the dish is highlighted by a natural sweetness from fresh fruits like mango, pomelo, and jackfruit which balances the savoury, nutty flavours of the ham. It also comes with a medley of vegetables along with fried potatoes, yam, and macadamia nuts.

To top it all off, there’s the house-made orange-plum sticky sauce. There are optional add-ons such as extra slices of the jamón serrano ham.

This yee sang will be available starting on January 24, 2024.

Price: Starts at RM98

Last day to order: While stocks last

Delivery fee: Dine-in and takeaways only

Where to order: Preorders can be made on WhatsApp, but are not necessary

Address: First Floor, Rainforest, New Wing One Utama Shopping centre, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Meanwhile, the salmon jellyfish option comes with, well, salmon and jellyfish. The three to four pax option is RM98 while the eight to ten pax one is RM148.

Both dishes come with shredded carrots, pickled ginger, dry cucumber, white radish, pomelo, crackers, crushed peanuts, and sesame seeds. For that classic Nyonya touch of sweet, sour, and spicy flavours, the dishes also feature plum sauce, five-spice powder, and lime juice.

Price: Starts at RM88

Perhaps the most unique yee sang option offered by Modern Italian restaurant Gooddam is its Slow Roasted Berkcious Pork Belly (RM168). As its name suggests, it features slow-roasted Berkcious (an Ipoh-based pork brand) pork belly with Sarawak black pepper gravy and spicy salsa verde.

Aside from the pork belly yee sang, Goodam also has two other options that sound just as good.

For one, the Prosperity Yee Sang (RM 308) features grilled lobster, scallop sashimi, and Gooddam’s house-made smoked salmon, topped with a refreshing plum sesame vinaigrette.

The Classic Yee Sang (RM 158) is made with the same house-smoked salmon, and also includes the plum sesame vinaigrette.  

Each serves four to six pax.

Price: Starts at RM158

7. Art of Salmó: Trout yee sang

Although traditionally carp has been used as the go-to fish in yee sang, salmon has become quite a hip option nowadays.

But, what about trout?

Featured by Vulcan Post in the past, Art of Salmó is a Malaysian brand that specialises in not salmon, but trout. Norwegian fjord trout, to be specific.

This Chinese New Year, Art of Salmó is offering a Lucky Yee Sang (RM88) that serves up to 10, as well as the Dragon Bliss Yee Sang (starts at RM328) which can serve up to 60. For the latter, which is more suitable for events, there’s a one-metre option as well as a two-metre option.

Both options come with a special Citrus Plum Zest, which gives a sweet and sour finish to the dish.

Aside from the salmó sashimi, other ingredients in the dish are crunchy salmon skin, carrot, radish, purple cabbage, egg, chuka kurage (seasoned jellyfish), chuka wakame (seasoned seaweed), pineapple, mandarin orange, lettuce, roasted sesame, and sunflower seed.

Price: Starts at RM88

Last day for orders: February 7, 2024

Delivery fee: For deliveries in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, the fee is RM15 to RM35. Free delivery is available for orders of RM250 and above.

Where to order: Website

Address: Sentul East, 800, Jln Sentul, Sentul, 51000 Kuala Lumpur

Plenty more fish in the sea

We’ve heard on good authority that some other restaurants that will be releasing their own take on yee sang include:

At the time of writing, they haven’t officially announced their yee sang dishes for the year, though.

In any case, this list is by no means exhaustive. We’re sure there are plenty more restaurants out there that you can support this Chinese New Year, in turn bringing some prosperity to yourself too. There’s no such thing as too much yee sang tossing, right?
