Rumour has it that four master chefs created Yu Sheng back in 1964, and it is a dish we now proudly recognised as one of the signature creations of Singapore.

We scoured this island to bring to you the best Yu Sheng recommendations, from the affordable ones at our supermarkets, to the atas luxurious ones at 5-star hotels.

We’ve also included a list for our vegetarian and health-conscious friends out there!
