Chinese New Year 2020: Restaurants For Lo Hei And Tossing Yu Sheng With The Family In Singapore

Welcoming the Chinese New Year on 25 January 2020 will be vibrant with the traditional Lo Hei or the prosperity toss. With a number of restaurants having special offers for this occasion, there is much to look forward to!

This tradition of Yu Sheng has come a long way from its origin of South China and is not much practiced in other parts of the world. But Singapore cannot think of ushering in the Chinese New Year without this practice. Lo Hei restaurants in Singapore join in to celebrate this tradition of family reunion and feasting.

The custom of Lo Hei or ‘tossing up the good fortune’ has originated from a simple raw fish and vegetables salad tossed with some condiments. Modern interpretation to it has added a level of finesse to the celebration. Here is our list of Lo Hei restaurants in Singapore that are a must-visit with friends and family.
