You know Chinese New Year is around the corner when shopping malls begun to play the Tong Tong Chiang songs! All of a sudden, malls were filled with people shopping for the festive season. Not forgetting, many sao gong chao dinner, company dinner and family x friends dinner with the famous CNY Yee Sang dish. When it comes to Yee Sang, the first thing that came to my mind was Mika, my son. Why? It's because my parents were wishing for a grandchild during last CNY Yee Sang and they got their wish right! Mika was conceived during the CNY :)
This would be Mika's first CNY and I cant wait for it! I wanted to show Mika the tradition about Yee Sang and was fortunate to show him in IPPUDO, Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) last week as we 'lou' together. For those who doesnt know IPPUDO, it is famous for its RAMEN, founded in HAKATA, which is Japan's RAMEN capital and they have over 80 restaurants in Japan and 40 overseas outlet. Malaysia is so lucky to have 3 IPPUDO restaurants in Pavilion, Gardens and BSC. Something interesting about IPPUDO is that every outlet has their own specialties. I especially love the interior of the outlet in BSC – a touch of Japanese fine dining infused with Western bar set up that compliments the classic Japanese and Western inspired cuisine. You will have to visit all 3 to find out what they offer.
I was fortunate enough to try out IPPUDO’s first launching of its very own Yee Sang.
Fresh salmon with fresh ingredients infused with deep friend ramen and tempura crispies to enhance the crunchieness and not forgetting the fresh and unique honey and lemon sauce to gel them all together.The sauce was light and not too sweet. I don’t know about you but this is a great idea to use honey and lemon sauce instead of the usual plum sauce! My sister even said it was the best Yee Sang she ever tasted because of its freshness, unlike the conventional ones you get from the box.
My date for the day, Mika and my sister Lina
This year I wish for good health and success, be careful of what you wish for as it might come true :) Take mine as a testimonial :P
After our first Yee Sang, it was time for the Chef's Winter Specials!
Isn't it pretty! I love how the chef made the circle out of a ramen!
We also tasted their famous ramen :
It was indeed a good dinner for all of us! I will definitly be back for more IPPUDO Yee Sang! Highly recommended!
The best part for mothers is that you will receive an exclusive IPPUDO ang pow packet with every Yee Sang order or every RM100 spent in a single receipt.

And what is New Year without going on a round of shopping, right? However, with Mika around, I can hardly go out so I shop online ALOT!
