CNY 2022: Where to order yee sang for dine-in, takeaway and delivery in the Klang Valley
It’s almost that time of the year when we bring out the long chopsticks and toss around a salad while shouting well wishes of good health, prosperity, and happiness with our loved ones. We’re referring to Chinese New Year reunions and the customary yee sang prosperity toss, of course.
Also known as ‘lou sang’ in Cantonese, this annual Malaysian Chinese tradition is inseparable from the season’s festivities to usher in blessings for the year ahead. While it’s the company you’re with that truly matters during this ritual, having a delicious, wholesome plate of condiments to indulge in after the tossing does make it all the more worth looking forward to.
On that note, we’ve put together a list of our recommended places to order yee sang for dine-in, takeaway and delivery in the Klang Valley.

2. St Regis Kuala Lumpur
A staple of its festive menus every year, The St Regis Kuala Lumpur’s Prosperity Yee Sang recipe has been handed down from generation to generation in the hotel’s owning family, Puan Sri Sharon Chua’s ancestral kitchen.

The secret of the recipe’s popularity, however, lies in an undisclosed final ingredient—you’ll have to taste it for a guess.
