The Sim­ply Her team tossed, tasted and ap­proved th­ese yusheng plat­ters – so you know what to or­der for your Chi­nese New Year get-to­geth­ers.

1 For­tune Golden Abalone Yu Sheng with Nor­we­gian Salmon

$126.25 (small), $233.25 (large), from Shang Palace at Shangri-La Ho­tel, 22 Orange Grove Road, tel: 6213-4473. Avail­able from Jan 7 to Feb 30. Or­der two days in ad­vance. Tra­di­tional with a luxe touch – abalone and salmon sashimi ac­com­pany the usual mixed veg­eta­bles, pick­led gin­ger, pomelo, grated peanuts, roasted se­same seeds and a sweet-tangy plum sauce. Not ex­cit­ing, but fa­mil­iar, and ev­ery­thing comes to­gether re­ally well.

2 Eight Joys of Spring Yu Sheng

$147.65 (four to six pax), $179.75 (eight to 10 pax), from Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts, 25 Scotts Road, tel: 6589-7799. Avail­able from Jan 21 to Feb 14. Or­der three days in ad­vance. One of the most in­no­va­tive plat­ters this year. The sub­tle sweet­ness of red dates, wolf­ber­ries, herbal jelly and gin­seng can­dies pairs won­der­fully with the pre­mium (lob­ster sashimi) and fa­mil­iar (car­rot and radish strips). Fried ver­mi­celli gives it ex­tra bite.

3 Snap­per with Grilled Puffer Fish “Yu Sheng”

$138, from Min Jiang at Good­wood Park Ho­tel, 22 Scotts Road, tel: 6730-1704. Avail­able from Jan 14 to Feb 14, for dine-in only. The sur­pris­ing in­gre­di­ents – mesclun greens, strips of mirin-soaked puffer fish and wasabi sprouts – make this an ex­otic yusheng. The air-fried puffer fish strips taste like sweet dried cut­tle­fish, while the wasabi sprouts add a slight spici­ness to the un­ex­pected mix of snap­per sashimi, pick­led jel­ly­fish, sweet po­tato and yam crisps, and prawn roe.

4 Hearty Five Trea­sures Yu Sheng

$78.80 (small), $128.80 (large), from Crys­tal Jade Golden Palace, #05-22 Paragon, tel: 6734-6866. Avail­able from mid-Jan­uary to mid-Fe­bru­ary. A gen­er­ous amount of nuts and seeds – pine nuts, sun­flower seeds, pump­kin seeds, white se­same and peanuts – can be found in this healthy salad that comes with salmon and am­ber­jack sashimi. In­stead of reg­u­lar corn oil, it uses the more nu­tri­ent-rich hazel­nut oil in the dress­ing, and the crunch in ev­ery bite sets this apart from the oth­ers.
