It’s that time of the year again when you get together with your friends and family members for Chinese New Year celebrations.

They have multiple sizes available for their Yee Sang, too, such as personal (from RM17.81), a set for four pax (from RM36.68), and a set for eight pax (from RM55.55).

6. Flakes

7. Gooddam

Gooddam, a modern Italian-inspired restaurant in SS2, Petaling Jaya, is a bit on the pricier side compared to some of our listings here, but for an understandably good reason.

If you prefer having their Yee Sangs at their restaurant, they, unfortunately, only have the Mini Classic Yee Sang suitable for 2 pax that’s available for dine-in.

This is a great alternative for those who are not big fans of traditional Yee Sangs, or want something alcoholic to spice up their Chinese New Year celebrations.
