Planning for #porkgang CNY took place way before CNY during one of our usual meal outing. We did come to a point almost wanted to book the whole Sanbanto exclusively for our dinner but some suggested that we should do something more Chinese since it is CNY. See, how indigenous we are.

Steamboat is something meaningful during such occasion but I believe most of us had this ‘BALLness’ meal with our families already. Hence, when the idea of PoonChoi came up, I think it was superbly brilliant. This Song Dynasty invented dish, PoonChoi serves the same purpose yet something new to most of us.

Even though #porkgang has been doing all sorts of activities and food session quite frequently, none of them involved full participation by everyone. So by hook or by crook we make sure this CNY dinner going to be 100% attendance and yes it was.

Every CNY dinner starts with LouShang isn’t it?

Surprisingly everyone reached on time and amazingly Haze found her way without getting lost. Navigating and locating of this isolated restaurant wasn’t too easy without the help of GPS. The massive PoonChoi served once we finished with the yee shang. To our surprise, the portion was amazingly huge. It was actually cater for 10 pax and shamefully, 15 of us not able to clean up the pot.

Didn’t realize the top view of PoonChoi I took is not in focus.

Traditionally, PoonChoi is composed layer by layer with all sorts of ingredients in huge and deep wooden or metal bowl. The tasting should go the same way layer by layer because normally it is arranged in such a way that item with lighter taste goes on top and gets stronger as it goes deeper beneath. What you see above is only the top layer and there’s another layer below with marinated stuff.

The bottom layer which almost cleared by the porkers

Basically, I like almost everything except the ‘PaiKuat’ (pork ribs) which was flat dry and the chicken was not fresh enough. The marinated chicken claws was awesome and the vege ‘KaiLan’ was so crunchy and sweet on the other hand. Other than the main dish PoonChoi, the lard rice was another highlight of the night. The brown sauce on the rice was actually lard. The porkers seems to like it a lot but to me, I found the smell of lard was too strong.

Lard Rice. Only last 10 left when we ordered. I shared with Fireangel

It was truly one remarkable dinner full of enjoyment with plenty of satisfaction and great companionship.  With only RM42/pax to pay for a scrumptious fulfilling dinner with beers included, I think it was absofuckinglutely worth it.
