Festivities are starting to get earlier and earlier every year. Even before Christmas in 2012, a few places started advertising their Chinese New Year Menu. I’ve yet to sample any yee sang from Chinese restaurants, but I did get a sneak preview of Senjyu’s Yee Sang offering when I popped by recently.
Available from 1st January to 28th February 2013, Senjyu’s Triple Treasures Yee Sang is must-try. I first tried this in January 2012, when I did a review for a publication I worked for. The salmon yee sang was so good, I went back three times after that – once with rif, another time with my parents and finally with my in-laws.
This year, Senjyu is serving the same Superior Salmon Yee Sang (RM38), and still as tasty as I remembered it to be. Instead of the usual crackers we get in Chinese yee sang, Senjyu uses fresh tempura batter to create the crunchy texture.
The overall result was light and flavourful, and paired nicely with the imported plum sauce that was not overly sweet. This also came with chukka idako, jelly fish, hotate and freshly julienned vegetables. The salmon slices were adequately thick and sliced fresh upon request. Lovely combination! It is easy to get carried away as this yee sang is quite refreshing to eat.
Another yee sang I tried was the Lavish Hotato Yee Sang (RM55). Basically, it’s similar to the salmon yee sang, but instead of salmon slices, you get live scallops. The scallops at Senjyu were sweet and smooth, and well complemented by the light plum dressing.
If you’re a seabass lover, check out the Imperial Suzuki Yee Sang (RM38). I didn’t get to try this, but like the other two yee sang I sampled, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
