Chinese New Year Feast - Sheraton Lung Yuan [Surabaya]

Perayaan Imlek

Yusheng / Yee Sang - Lung Yuan Surabaya

Gong Xi Fa Cai
Selamat untuk yang besok merayakan Imlek
Untuk menemani reuni dan makan-makan keluarga, saya ingin post tentang undangan dari Sheraton hotel untuk menu hidangan pesta Imlek

Gong Hey Fat Choy
That's a cantonese (Hong Kong) version of Gong Xi Fa Cai, which means Happy Chinese New Year.
To accompany you guys on this festive occasion, allow me to share the story of CNY (Chinese New Year) feast held in Sheraton Surabaya's Lung Yuan restaurant.

Lokasi Lung Yuan ada di lantai dua / mezzanine hotel Sheraton.
Tempatnya comfy dan private. Ada ruangan khusus di bagian kanan yang bisa direservasi untuk acara spesial.

Lung Yuan is located in the second floor / mezzanine in Sheraton Hotel Surabaya.
It feels both comfortable and exclusive. There's a private room you can reserve for special occasion in the right side of the restaurant.








Hidangan yang saya ulas pertama dan paling meriah di acara ini adalah Yee Sang / Yusheng




Yusheng / Yee Sang - Lung Yuan Surabaya

Berikut petikan dari Wikipedia :
Yee sang atau yusheng (Sederhana鱼生Pinyinyúshēng) adalah masakan Tiochiu berupa salad ikan segar ditambah irisan halus sayuran seperti wortel dan lobak. Daging ikan yang dipakai adalah irisan ikan tuna atau ikan salem yang sebelumnya bisa sudah direndam dalam campuran minyak wijen, minyak goreng, dan merica. Saus dibuat campuran minyak (minyak goreng dan minyak wijen) dengan tambahan saus buah prem, gula pasir, dan bubuk kayu manis.
Aksara Tionghoa untuk ikan () dan berkelebihan () sama-sama dibaca sebagai . Aksara Tionghoa untuk yúshēng (鱼生) juga homofon dengan yúshēng (余升) yang berarti meningkatnya kelimpahan. Oleh karena itu, makanan ini dipercaya sebagai simbol kelimpahan dan kemakmuran bagi orang yang memakannya.

Here you can see video and picture of Yusheng, a dish eaten during the Chinese New Year feast.
If you're unfamiliar with the dish, here's an excerpt from Wikipedia : 
Yushengyee sang or yuu sahng (Chinese魚生pinyinyúshēngPe̍h-ōe-jīhî-seⁿ or hû-siⁿ), or Prosperity Toss, also known as lo hei (Cantonese for 撈起 or 捞起) is a Teochew-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (sometimes salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish ()" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance ()", Yúshēng (魚生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
While versions of it are thought to have existed in China, the contemporary version was created and popularised[citation needed] in the 1960s amongst the ethnic Chinese community and its consumption has been associated with Chinese New Year festivities in MalaysiaIndonesia and Singapore.




Semakin tinggi Yusheng nya diaduk, menandakan semakin tinggi harapan untuk tahun baru yang baik. Entah tentang hasil peruntungannya tahun depan, tapi hasil yang jelas, mejanya jadi berantakan http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/wink.png 

The higher you stir the Yee sang, the higher your prosperity will be in the following year.
While there's no telling what the future hold, you'd surely get a messy table if you're doing it in similar way demonstrated in the video http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/wink.png

 Yang pernah makan di sini pasti tahu kalau standard rasanya memang top, ketiga hidangan klasik di atas juga semuanya enak. Yang menarik adalah Ayam Kodoknya, menu yang jarang saya temui di resto Chinese lainnya. Rasanya istimewa, jauh berbeda dibanding olahan serupa di resto lain, yang rasanya relatif kecut.
Hidangan menarik berikutnya adalah Lontong Cap Go Mek yang ditata cantik, kalau masalah rasa memang tidak sampai istimewa, tapi penyajiannya amat menarik.

If you've been to this place, I bet you'd be salivating looking at the photos. Every dish we tried tastes great, and it's mostly classic Chinese dish with few exceptions.
The Stuffed Whole Chicken is more of a western or fusion / peranakan dish, so it's quite rare to see one in a Chinese Restaurant. The dish tastes great though, it's start different to similar ones I tried on other restaurant, which meat tastes rather sour in comparison.
Another interesting dish is the Lontong Cap Go Mek. It's a dish made a few weeks after Chinese New Year, and it's a peranakan dish. Taste-wise I kinda feel it's nothing special, but the plating is gorgeous
