Yee Sang (a.k.a. Raw Fish Salad)

I recently moved here from Malaysia and was wondering if there's any place in the Bay Area that serves Yee Sang (a.k.a. Raw Fish Salad), a dish that is generally served during Chinese New Year in Malaysia/ Singapore.

I have searched the archives but the posts on this is a wee bit old (2001). Appreciate if anyone could give me a lead on this.

For a description of Yee Sang, you can find the recipe here

      Thanks! I guess I didn't use the correct search term!

    2. Thank you Ruth. Haven't been to Sam Wo since well before Edsel Ford Wong died. I was
      poor (impecunious) student then.Always used them for my return of favor meal. A show
      (Edsel) and dinner for little cash .Loved the raw fish salad. Any updates on the food. Edsel was irreplaceable

      1. Oh man, that's my favorite part about celebrating CNY in Singapore! I've never seen it here before. It's typically spelled Yu Sheng, which may bring up more hits on google.
