Say goodbye to Yusheng in plastic containers or laying out newspapers on the table and referring to your phones to figure out how to Lohei.
This year, Chinese restaurant Blue Lotus is collaborating with Tuck Lee Ice to introduce Season’s Best. This collaboration features Blue Lotus’ signature Yusheng in a luxurious red gift box that you can bring as a gift during Chinese New Year visiting.
A New Way to Lohei
The Season’s Best gift box opens up to reveal the Blue Lotus Signature Norweigan Smoked Salmon Yusheng which is a festive dish comprising 10 herbs and vegetables, two aromatic spices, three types of nuts, tea-smoked salmon and salmon skin. It is then topped with a generous dose of spring-onion-infused olive oil and wild honey yuzu dressing. We love the fresh salad leaves used for the yusheng, compared to the usual processed shredded veggies.
The Yusheng is surrounded by a guide of festive sayings for each ingredient which is printed in golden chinese characters and hanyu pinyin. Once you unbox the yusheng, the Season Best’s gift box is designed to collect the prosperous mess that comes with tossing of the Yusheng.
The box design is a nice added experience to the lohei traditions, with the printed festive sayings providing a ‘cheat sheet’ for many of us who may not be so versed with these phrases. We also like how simple it is to clean up by wrapping everything up within the box, clearing up the mess from the tossing easily.
Developing a dedicated experience for takeaway customers
“We feel that customers may want to celebrate at home and thus, we decided to focus on the takeaway experience for our guests. Food safety is also very important to us. This led us to partner with Tuck Lee Ice to design these gift boxes and have our Yusheng deliveries to be done via Tuck Lee Ice’s cold trucks,” shared Chef Ricky Ng, Managing Director, Blue Lotus Concepts.
Order Season’s Best Yusheng
The Yusheng is good for 8 to 10 pax and customers can choose to add on additional crispy salmon skin, Norweigan smoked salmon and abalone.
