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.
1. The Queen’s Yu Sheng ($88), Antoinette
Take a whack at Antoinette’s The Queen’s Yu Sheng – literally with a wooden hammer! Truly a dish worth whipping out the cameras for, the dessert yu sheng comes in a glittery golden chocolate egg (a symbol of birth and renewal) nestled on a bed of auspicious sweets such as chocolate fish, gold ingots and coins, nuts, mandarin orange butter cake, meringue kisses, yam and sweet potato chips. Uncover more delicious treats when you crack open the egg, before drizzling the remnants with a mandarin orange, plum and gula melaka dressing to sweeten the Lunar New Year. The yu sheng feeds up to six people and is available for dine-in and takeaway.
