With CNY coming up, you can also get your yusheng fix at the stall for cheap—think $1 per condiment for the DIY option, or $8 for a pre-arranged set. Choose from a plethora of colourful toppings commonly found in most yusheng platters, from pickled radish to ginger, and mix and match to your heart’s desires.

Yusheng can be rather costly, with prices ranging from $20 all the way to over $100, especially if they come with premium toppings such as abalone and salmon. If you’re up for a no-frills, simple lohei that’s also vegetarian-friendly, the yusheng set at Kai Hock Provision comes with the neccessary fixings, sans fish. Included are garnishes such as golden crackers for prosperity, and crushed peanuts to ring in more huat for the household.
