In 2022, we’re eating more consciously and carefully. Sometimes, we don’t need a full portion of yusheng only to waste half of it when it ends up on the table, floor, and maybe even walls.

13. Archisen Just Produce Salad (S$4.50/100g)

The great thing about a salad yusheng is that people will actually eat it, firstly, and buying your veggies by the weight lets you control the portion accordingly, preventing wastage at the end of your tossing pleasure. Instead of taking the conventional route, why not take a stab at locally-farmed Archisen fresh produce so you can eat healthy while supporting local?

The vegetables are grown under a Controlled-Environment Agriculture (CEA) setting that’s free of chemical pesticides or GMOs, so you can be sure that what you’re putting in your body is as healthy as healthy gets. Also, the salad offerings (S$4.50/100g) come in naturally-flavoured variants of Wasabi, Lemon and Himalayan Pink Salt, so there’s always the option to jazz up your meal if you’re up for it.
