Yu Sheng

Yu Sheng is enjoyed mainly in Singapore and Malaysia during the Chinese New Year period to wish Good Luck for the coming year. The plate is full of colourful shredded vegetables, raw fish and some toppings. Each item/colour has a meaning, with green representing youthfulness. Avocado adds a creamy texture and the positive energy of youth.
