SIN: Sakae Sushi [Rong Yu Sheng]

Prosperity toss with chuka kurage!

Can you believe that it's already the 3rd day of Chinese New Year? Yeah, that means I have to go to school tomorrow, sigh... Haha... Anyway, as mentioned previously, this year I'm going to write a short review on the yu sheng (Teochew raw fish salad) I took away from Sakae Sushi.

Rong Yu Sheng (Success) S$26.88
Taste: 8.5/10

The smallest size is named Success, followed by Money (Wealth) and Longevity. A colourful array of preserved winter melon strips, preserved brown melon strips, preserved cucumber strips, preserved Chinese vegetable strips, white sour ginger strips, red sweetened ginger strips, sweetened lime strips, white radish strips, carrot strips, cucumber strips, shredded lettuce and chuka kurage (Japanese preserved seasoned jellyfish) was a sight to behold. The salmon slices were initally put separately inside a plastic package with an ice pack in it.

They were really generous with the amount of peanut crumbs, sesame seeds and pok chui biscuits (Chinese fried flour crackers resembling the shape of bags of money). There's actually an order in which you add the ingredients, but of course, I'm just a person who can't be bothered about it. Pika's advice: Interested to know? Just go to this Wikipedia page! :D

After adding the sauce, pepper and cinnamon powder, we tossed the ingredients together as high as possible, hopefully reflecting the growth in fortune for the year. Anyway, now I should describe how it tasted haha... In general, the vegetables were fresh, and the salmon slices were equally so. Actually I don't exactly like eating chuka kurage on its own since I usually get sick of it after the second bite, but I felt that it went wonderfully well with the mixture of vegetables. Also, the adequately sweet orange sauce blended with a bit of fish sauce was something to rave about. 

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8.5/10

Since yu sheng is supposedly traditionally eaten on the seventh day of Chinese New Year, should I buy one more at the end of the week? Hmm...
