Lou Sang 1

A healthy lou sang - purple cabbage, wolfberry (goji), pine nuts, dried cranberries, cornflakes, carrots, white fungus, coriander and maybe some other ingredients that I did not take note of. Since I am eating with 7 other persons, I just took photos of the food in my own bowl.

My portion of yee sang


An individual mini pot of Cordyceps Militaris  (虫草子实体) Chicken Soup - bursting with the taste of goodness.

Red and Green Capsicum, carrots and assorted mushrooms - black mushrooms and monkey head mushroom (Hericium erinaceus).

Fried rice with cabbage, chicken meat, tiny anchovies, prawns, eggs.

There are 3 dishes here: 1) Sambal Prawn Balls 2) Stirfried lettuce 3) waxed rice (lap mei fan) hidden underneath the lettuce and prawns.

Stirfried noodles with beansprout

Bill came up to a little over MYR400 so that is MYR50 per pax, This Oriental Bowl restaurant is located very near to Central Market.

Here's wishing everyone a very Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year! Enjoy your reunion dinner tomorrow!

  5. We don't have lou sang or yee sang here, not in the Foochow culture. I guess that's Cantonese. Some have tried introducing...but it never caught on, not that I know of so far.

    Qong Xi Fa Cai to you and your loved ones. Hope you got my card.

    1. I think more and more places are having their own unique yee sang like this one.

    1. Not really. Yes, it is purposely made to be colourful. :)

  8. I know what you mean...sometimes it's not so appropriate to take pics (especially if you're not eating with very close friends). That's a pretty healthy CNY makan!
