Thank you Red House for sponsoring RERG team’s first yusheng for the Chinese New Year! Do you know the modern yusheng is created in Singapore? Some people have championed it to be a National Dish. Yusheng (raw fish) is a symbol of prosperity because (1) yu 鱼 (fish) is a homonym of yu 余 (excess) and if you have excess, it means you’re rich and (2) sheng 生(raw) is a homonym of sheng 升(rise/promotion). Ok, we made that up but it is most probably true.
Hookerlily: Red House is quite generous with the salmon hor?
Wise Guy: Yeah, this is the large portion of Prosperity Salmon Yusheng ($76+) for 8-10 people. The small one costs $38. When I went to pick up the yusheng, they were preparing it on the spot. This yusheng is as fresh as it can be. Very awesome.”
Mr NGFL: Add half the oil dressing hor? I am on a diet. [Shit girls say…]
Chiobu: I like the yusheng. It isn’t overly sweet like some other yusheng out there.
14K: The colors are popping. So gorgeous and gold.
Wise Guy: My favorite color!
