It’s the Chinese New Year (CNY) festive period and also time to lohei to usher in all the good stuff for the year ahead.
Traditionally, lohei is done with a Yusheng dish on the seventh day of CNY. These days, we tend to lohei at every CNY meal gatherings. If you are looking to order a yusheng online and have it delivered to you at your convenience, here are five recommendations to consider:
Sakae Sushi offers several attractive festive combos starting from just S$116. The S$168 combo (serves 8 to 10 pax) comes with a salmon yusheng, a salmon platter, a agemono platter and a chinmi platter as below:
If you are just ordering a yusheng, prices start from S$29.88 for a small salmon yusheng that serves 2 to 3 pax to S$72.88 for a large one that serves 6 to 8 pax, with additional Australian abalone.
This is a really awesome choice if you are looking for a wallet-friendly yusheng option, yet not compromising on hygiene and reliability.

12.01.2017: The third and best Yusheng so far was delivered by @deliveroo_sg all the way from @kinkibar. Everyone who tried it said it is refreshingly different and super yum! Not sure if I’ll ever taste a better one this year. Varieties of sashimi with crunchy vegetables and dunno-what… and the truffle oil and special sauce… soooo sooooo sooooo good. 😋 Need to have it again! #treats #tlmeats #foodie #huatah #yusheng #cny2017 #reunion #sgigfoodies #kinkibar #deliveroo #mate9 #huaweisg
If you prefer something more premium and a little different. Consider ordering the CNY Special Yusheng from Japanese restaurant, Kinki.
Available from 9 Jan to 11 Feb 2017, the Kinki’s Prosperity Toss is prepared with fresh sashimi upon ordering via online food delivery service, Deliveroo.
This is really one of the best yusheng I had this year. It is served with an assortment of freshly prepared salmon, tuna and swordfish sashimi, splashed with sesame dressing and dashes of truffle oil.
Delivery lead time is at least 2 hours in advance of required delivery timing. Pre-order of 3 working days is needed in advance for orders of 10 pax and above. Price starts from S$94.16 for 4 pax.
The salmon yusheng starts from S$38 for 2 to 6 pax, going up to S$98 for their abalone yusheng. You can order an assortment of dim sum to go with your lohei or try some of their special CNY dishes like Yum Cha’s Golden Chicken Nian Gao or Steamed Yam Cake with Dry Scallops.
