It comes in the figure of an adorable shih-tsu, complete with shaggy orange ears made of chopped carrots and the cutest face of chopped turnip.
It’s that time of the year again when the yee sang takes centrestage, backed up by mouth-watering course dinners to celebrate the turn of another Lunar new year.
This year, man’s best friend has the spotlight and modern Chinese restaurant Ruyi & Lyn is paying homage to our furry four-legged friend with the cutest yee sang you’ll see this year.
Its yee sang comes in the figure of an adorable shih-tsu, complete with shaggy orange ears made of chopped carrots and the cutest face of chopped turnip.
Cuteness aside, the yee sang is also a healthier version; instead of pickled and preserved vegetables dyed with artificial colouring, the ingredients are chopped fresh inhouse and served raw minus additional colouring, sugar or preservatives.
The healthy aspect is also inherent in the rest of the menu. Chinese New Year’s favourite foods – prawns, fish, lamb and more – are prepared with Ruyi & Lyn’s special touch of less oil, less salt and less sugar. Clear soups replace thick starchy broths; steamed prawns on silky steamed egg custard take the place of the typical deep fried butter prawns, among others.
But it’s not a menu that cut back on indulgence – flavours are still ample and variety still spoilful, just made healthier for a more balanced celebration this year.
Take your pick from a full 8-course dinner for a grand celebration or choose your favourites from an ala carte menu for an intimate gathering. There’s also a tantalising cocktail menu of drinks for you to toast to the Year of the Dog.
