Toss up some drama at the start of a family reunion dinner
Remember how as kids, we ignored the gross shredded vegetables to pick out all the crackers when it came to yu sheng? Well, time flies, taste buds have matured and you are old. Yu sheng's amalgamation of the strikingly colourful ingredients that was loathed before, we now love and actually look forward to when the Lunar New Year comes striding in.
But if this customary dish ever starts losing its appeal, we have compiled a list of 10 yu sheng that sport a creative twist to make your mouth water once more.

10. Lucky Lunar Lo Hei ($28/half; $48/full), Chopsuey Cafe
Chopsuey Cafe’s Lucky Lunar Lo Hei, available from 5 February to 2 March, is kind of like an ang moh yu sheng that touts an ingredient list of the trendy kale, celeriac, blueberries and rice. Thankfully, we spot the familiars of traditional pok chui crackers, grounded nuts, and carrot shreds in the mix. Trout is used in the cafe’s rendition of the Lunar New Year staple.
Available at Chopsuey Cafe outlets including 10 Dempsey Road, #01-23, Singapore 247700 & 38 Martin Road, #01-02, Singapore 239059
