Chinese New Year is just around the corner and what other way to celebrate it than enjoying your time with your friends and families with a giant dish of Yee Sang!

Yee Sang has been a tradition for the Chinese community for a long time now. Over the years, people started creating more variations of the dish mixing all kinds of fruits and vegetables.

Malaysia is no exception; let’s take a look at the outstanding variations of Yee Sang that can be found in Malaysia.

1. Alison Soup House – Nyonya Seafood Yee Sang

Swimming into the list is Alison Soup House’s Nyonya Seafood Yee Sang.

This abnormal dish consists of eleven different types of ingredients but they even have seafood in it such as: pineapple, beetroot, lime leaves, pomelo and salmon.

They also replaced the usual crackers with mixed nuts and whole grains.

2. Chynna – Modern Style Savoury Duck Yee Sang

Chynna takes it to the next level with their Modern Style Savoury Duck Yee Sang.

They took an interesting twist by replacing the usual sweet plum sauce with savoury peanut satay sauce instead.

That’s not the best part, what stands out the most about this dish is that it consists of deep-fried shredded roast duck accompanied with the usual combinations of fruits and vegetables, but it’s the chemistry of the flavours between the roast duck and peanut satay sauce which makes this dish stand out from the rest.
