Chinese New Year 2014 Tai Thong Poon Choy Set Menus

My last visit to Spring Garden at KLCC was a couple of months back for the Tai Thong Nourishing Ginseng Series Menu Introduction . With Chinese New Year just around the corner, more and more chinese restaurants in town and are introducing their various Chinese New Year set menus. I had the opportunity to check out Tai Thong's latest Chinese New Year set menu and their delectable Poon Choy pot.

Now everytime I'm presented with the very large Poon Choy pot, it is always pleasing to the eye, and I know it's going to be a very filling rich meal. Served at Spring Garden KLCC, which is a pork free outlet, the Tai Thong Prosperity Poon Choy Pot had multiple layers of really yummy ingredients. We were told the way to enjoy a pot of Poon Choy was to have it layer by layer.

A total of 18 ingredients alltogether, I was rather pleased with the ingredients used. The Tai Thong Poon Choy Pot is layered with 18 ingredients, which I shall take the liberty to list it all down as follows. We had the fish fillets, fish maw, dried oysters, black mushrooms, celery, sea prawns, sea cucumber, wheat gluten, broccoli, lotus root, white radish, poached chicken, fatt choy (black moss), conpoy, roast duck/ beancurd stick and finally Tien Jin cabbage at the bottom.

There were two different sets, one the Prosperity Poon Choy Pot, and the other is with the addition of 10 heads of abalone, named the Prestige Poon Choy Pot. It was indeed a very filling dish, one which can be shared from 5 to 10 people. The feeling of digging into the Poon Choy Pot together with fellow friends was an experience in itself, with a sense of closeness, as the ingredients inside the pot simmered in. One thing to note, for each order of Poon Choy here at Spring Garden, the limited edition poon choy pot can be taken home for free, on a first come first basis.

No Chinese New Year meal would be complete without the obligatory traditional Yee Sang. Here at Tai Thong, they served the Eight Jewels Fruit Yee Sang, a unique twist from our traditional yee sang. They do have the others in the menu, but that night we had the very special, and surprisingly tasty sweet fruit yee sang.

I did like the Eight Jewels Fruit Yee Sang, especially the sweet fruits contained inside. We had various fruits thrown in, to be tossed for prosperity and luck in the new year. We were told the folks from Tai Thong actually experimented with various combinations before coming up with this perfected fruit yee sang.

Even the dessert that was served that night was an interesting one. The Tai Thong Rainbow Tang Yuen served came in multiple colours, each with a different filling. We have the red bean, corn, lotus paste, yam, custard, sweet potato & pumpkin paste filling. All these served in sweet ginger soup. Personally I preferred slightly smaller tang yuen's with a stronger taste for the fillings, but these were a healthy version so all is good.
