The Chinese New Year Yee Sang dinner preview held at Vistana Penang was a spread of auspicious dishes with localized flavors (priced around RM688++).

Among them was the Salmon Yee Sang – made up of strips of raw salmon, vegetables, deep-fried yam, sauces, and condiments. Everyone took part in tossing the yee sang which is a Chinese New Year custom with auspicious significance in raising good luck for the coming year.

The braised pumpkin soup served with a medley of seafood, chicken and soft cubes of tofu was something new to look forward to.

The steamed red lion fish made a nice appearance – with the whole fish served steaming hot with superior soy sauce on a burner. I love the quality freshness of the fish and its texture but felt the dish could be better with a more intense flavor soy sauce.

Later we sampled dessert – ginger tea with black sesame rice ball. The light gingery tea was perked up with sweetness of red dates while the texture of the tang yuen is rather firm.
