Internationally acclaimed Taiwanese restaurant Din Tai Fung invites everyone to create new traditions with your family this Lunar New Year. Usher in the Year of the Tiger with Din Tai Fung’s classic Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng 发财鱼生 and an exciting AR gamified filter with weekly prizes to be won.

Every Lunar New Year needs an Yu Sheng, as friends, colleagues, and family gather for the annual ritual, as they toss the bounty of ingredients to promote togetherness and bountiful blessings for the upcoming year. Each ingredient represents different blessings and elements of health, luck, wealth, and happiness. When all the different elements are placed on the plate, diners gather to toss the ingredients and utter auspicious phrases, where the higher the toss, the greater the fortune.

Din Tai Fung will be offering up their special Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng for the Lunar New Year (available as a Classic version S$48.80 and Vegetarian version S$39.80). Available islandwide from 18 January to 15 February 2022, Din Tai Fung’s classic Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng comprises carefully selected ingredients: flavourful Norwegian smoked salmon is served alongside colourful, and refreshing ribbons of carrots, and green and white radish. Ingredients also includes specially toasted, aromatic white sesame seeds and fragrant roasted peanuts. This celebratory classic is drizzled with a swirl of Din Tai Fung’s in-house signature auspicious plum dressing that is delicately balanced with just the right perfect amount of sweetness; and topped with a serving of Crispy Yam Strips for an added crunch.
