As this month is Chinese New Year, the owner hosted the festive Poon Choy for us at Tesco Tanjung Pinang. We gathered around to savor the massive dish emphasized on pork besides vegetables and dried seafood.

The Poon Choy is layered with 14 specially chosen delicacies such as Chile abalones, prawns, Chinese black mushrooms, broccoli, preserved oysters, fried golden bags, pork knuckle, Australian sea cucumber, yam, radish, deep-fried foo chuk and New Zealand scallops.

The broth boiled with pork knuckle, dried scallops and dried oysters for long hours has rich meaty and umami flavors. Cut chilies in soy sauce are served with the dish.

A Chinese New Year meal wouldn’t be complete without the Yee Sang. In the menu, the owner had included the traditional dish in combination with salmon to usher in the Year of The Rooster.

Priced at RM38nett (2-3 pax) and RM66nett (6-8 pax), the Yee Sang platter comes with fresh vegetables, pickled ingredients along with roasted nuts, sesame seeds, jelly fish, fruity sweet sauce and condiments.
