Yee Sang

Freshly and locally made yee sang

Every Chinese New Year, we noticed this particular old shop selling Yee Sang but we never tried. All the ingredient were freshly prepared and kept in big glass jars. You will see many locals (especially senior citizens) queuing up for this plate of goodies.

This year, we finally made our way to give it a try. Surprisingly, it was really nice ! The sauce was not too sweet, the peanuts and sesame seeds were very fragrance while the crackers and jelly fishes were really crunchy ! In between, the shredded turnip (or was it pear?) and pamelo were very juicy. 

This is the dish which I'll be looking forward to in every CNY. Not only I like the taste, I enjoyed tossing with family and friends while shouting 'Huat arr'. Now, both my kids had grown up and they too, must have a share to toss together. Just had to ignore the mess they both did.

As CNY had comes to an end, I will have to wait for next year to enjoy this dish again.
