Rasa Sayang, London


If you’re visiting around Lunar New Year, Rasa Sayang (5 Macclesfield St, W1D 6AY; 020 7734 1382) is the location to try yu sheng, a conventional brand-new year dish in Malaysia and Singapore– both in the restaurant or to remove.

Family and friends gather to enjoy the huge mix of active ingredients– carrots, ginger, jellyfish, wontons and more– all which signify luck, wealth or health. In the routine of lo hei (” toss high”), visitors toss the components in the air with chopsticks while shouting out good want the year ahead.
