5 Unique Types Of Yee Sang You Must Try This Chinese New Year

Unique Yee Sang Sets

Chinese New Year is here again and it is time to celebrate it with friends and family by taking up your chopsticks and tossing your Yee Sang as high as you can in the hopes of raking in some good luck. Yee Sang, or Lou Sang, can be found on almost every table during the Chinese New Year, as it’s a symbol of good luck, prosperity, health, and all things auspicious.

Yee Sang is a Cantonese-style raw fish salad and it usually consists of strips of raw fish, mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. However, restaurants nowadays are trying new and unique ingredients with their own take of Yee Sang.

Here are some unique Yee Sangs you must try!
