Industry: Hotels       

As the Chinese New Year begins, Kris Restaurant at Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai offers delightful traditional flavours served amidst the most incredible 360 degree views of the dazzling skyline of Dubai.

(TRAVPR.COM) UAE - February 11th, 2013 - As the Chinese New Year begins, Kris Restaurant at Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai offers delightful traditional flavours served amidst the most incredible 360 degree views of the dazzling skyline of Dubai.  

On February 10, Poonsak Sumonratanakul, the Executive Chef at Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai served a group of select guests  yu sheng, a communal salad of raw fish, crunchy noodles and pomelo that Chinese Singaporeans and Malaysians have turned into a sport to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

The salad was piled high. Chef Poonsak encouraged guests to participate, “The higher you toss, the more money you’re going to make next year,” he said.

As we sat on an ingredient-strewn table in anticipation of the unique ceremony, Chef Poonsak explained. “Yu sheng is a popular and healthy festive dish usually served on the 7th day of the Chinese New Year. This shared raw fish salad is colourful and the act of tossing the salad together symbolizes ushering of prosperity and abundance for the New Year. You eat it so you can turn a year older.”

A symphony of flavours – some known, some new – was laid out in front of the guests. “The taste comes from the way we season the salad,” Chef Poonsak said. Yu sheng is probably one of the best food experiences one can have. Longevity noodles and whole chicken are some other common denominators on Chinese New Year tables. So what are you waiting for? Welcome the Year of the Snake with yu sheng. “Huat ah”. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
