My name is Joyce, author of Eat What Tonight. Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
Though not a fan of yusheng, but the traditions of “lou hei” for good luck is never neglected. Instead of restaurants and sakae sushi this year, we had “yu sheng” at Zhen Jie at Chinatown Hawker Centre. Much cheaper, no service charge and GST. Surprisingly, many hawker stalls were already opened on the third day of the lunar new year.
Because I am not a fan of yu sheng, I find that they taste the same everywhere. Only the price and atmosphere of where you had it will vary. But I guess as long as the company is right, even “lou heing” on a picnic mat will be fun too !
Just some shredded carrots, radish, capsicum, chopped peanuts, plum sauce, shrimp crackers, vinegar, sesame oil, some kind of raw fish like parang of salmon. That’s all I can taste and think of for now. I suppose there should be more than that. (:
