Prosperity Toss of Abundance

It's time for a resplendent feast of Prosperity Toss or Yee Sang (raw fish salad) to usher in the prosperous Lunar New Year at the Meisan Szechuan Restaurant, Quality Hotel City Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
The 250 room hotel, popularly known for its buffet halal dim sum, is ideally located in the heart of business and shopping districts of Kuala Lumpur. Within walking distance to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) station and Monorail station, which takes you to various city attractions around the city.
Meisan offers halal gourmet indulgences with decadent set menus and new creations of symbolic expressions of good fortune, prosperity, happiness, wealth and abundance for the Chinese New Year.
Yee Sang, a traditional dish serves as an appetizer during lunch or dinner course to usher the New Year, is an assortment of small strips raw fish mixed with shredded carrots, capsicum, kaffir lime leaves, young ginger, cucumber, red chili and Chinese parsley. It is then mixed with chopped nuts, toasted sesame seeds and pomelo wedges. Finally, everything is mixed and ready for tossing with a mixture of plum sauce, honey, limes, five-spice powder, pepper sesame oil, kumquat paste and rice vinegar.
The ritual of Yee Sang, cultural activity for Chinese living in Singapore and Malaysia, is to toss the mixed ingredients high in the air with joyfully exclamations of "Loh Hey", which literally means to ‘move upwards’ and symbolically wish for fortunes, abundant of luck and happiness throughout the year for all.
