Halal Poon Choy? Pork free Poon Choy? I see sceptics rolling their eyes. Honestly, I wasn't too confident that it would turn out tasty after being so accustomed to these treasure pots that are filled with a few porky items.

Golden Valley sprung a surprise with their halal Poon Choy - Treasure Pot Poon Choy RM398 and Treasure Pot Poon Choy with Abalone RM698. 

We were treated to the Treasure Pot Poon Choy with Abalone. The first thing that caught my eye was the fish. A whole fish complete with head and tail. One will certainly be worried with fish bones but fret not. The fish has been deboned and the flesh has been carefully made into fish cakes. Delicious and firm fish cake made of only pure fish paste! 

In the absence of pork, this pot of Poon Choy has a lovely clean and clear taste to it. Its tasty yet light (the Chinese call it "cheng"). A delightful sauce pieced together with abalone, sea cucumber, black sea moss, prawns, mushrooms, chicken, oysters, scallops and fish made this a delightful pot. It calls for extra rice so that one can savour every bit of the ingredients.

One pot of treasure. One pot of wonders. I think I managed to assemble all the ingredients into this plate. Note the fish cake on the left! Amazing stuff that I hope will make its way to their ala carte menu.

Yee sang is available in the CNY ala carte menu too. Salmon yee at RM68 (Small) and RM98 (Large) or jelly fish yee sang RM58 (Small) and RM88 (large). Alternatively if you want both the ingredients or you want more, you can top up with additional salmon (RM30) and jelly fish RM20. 

Our yee sang was the Salmon Yee Sang. Delightful and fresh with just the right amount of appetizing plum sauce and oil. Let's toss to a brand new year of happiness and blessings!
