I got to eat amazing Yusheng this year. For those of you who haven’t tried it- you are seriously missing out on life itself. It’s got the crunch, the flavour and meaning behind it. It’s amazing.
Each ingredient in the salad signifies a different meaning that provides luck for the New Year. Chinese believe that the higher you toss the salad while mixing it – the more luck you get! Just imagine, you’re given the green light to make a mess in a sophisticated restaurant. It’s a child’s dream. Oh – wait – it was really fun for me too. Just wonder what does says about me 😉
I took a picture of it before eating it. It was terribly tough to do that – as I couldn’t wait to dig in. So happy that I was in Singapore during that period 🙂
I really want to try to make it at home. I did some googling – came across this recipe which I’m thinking of modifying a bit to suit me more. Will post my version up when I try it out. I think I might need to make a trip to the Chinese Supermarket for some ingredients though!
Hope everyone’s been quite the foodie lately!
