Lo Hei
for Blessings, Prosperity, Wealth and Health! (Chinese Salmon Salad)
The tradition of Lo Hei can be traced back to ancient China -- from the coast of Guangzhou, the Southern Song Dynasty, until today's modern interpretation of the dish by the Chinese immigrants in South East Asia. Also known as the Prosperity Toss or Chinese Salad, this dish is popularized in Singapore and Malaysia. It is a requisite during Chinese New Year as a symbolism of good fortune, health and prosperity for the Chinese. From the banquet tables at Chinese New Year, the dish has evolved as a celebratory dish for family celebrations, business dinners and any joyous occasion. The higher you toss the salad the better the luck and good fortune!

The original Lo Hei consists of 27 auspicious ingredients. The Man Ho Chinese Restaurant version is a variation of the original for the occassion or if you just want to fuel up for luck!
