Today I visit the Sushi King at Wangsa Walk Mall to try their latest dish for the Chinese New year festival.

After looking at the menu for the Chinese New Year festival, I order a small size Yee Sang. It cost RM18.88 per plate with service tax included.

Yee Sang also known as lo sahng is a Cantonese-style raw fish salad that only appear during Chinese New Year. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (sometimes salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients.

The sushi king version contains carrots, cucumber, radish, shredded eggs, seasoned seaweed salad, fish roe, seasoned scallop wings, crabstick and Norwegian salmon slices served with in-house plum sauce and lime.

Yee Sang is often served as part of a multi-dish dinner, usually as the appetizer due to its symbolism of "good luck" for the new year.

Normally after it is served on the table, everyone will stand up and proceed to toss the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying various "auspicious wishes" out loud, or simply "lo hei, lo hei" meaning "scoop it up, scoop it up"). It is believed that the height of the toss reflects the height of the diners' growth in fortunes, thus diners are expected to toss enthusiastically.
