 Featuring an assortment of vegetables, raw fish slices and ground spices, yu sheng would be a wholesome dish, if not for these fat traps: Deep-fried pillow crackers and sugar-loaded plum sauce.

According to Health Exchange, a 387g serving of store-bought yu sheng will cost you over 500 calories. That’s a whooping figure, considering that this dish is usually eaten as a starter.
