Poon Choi at Restoran LYJ (李雄记酒家), Kg Baru Sungai Buloh.

It's the Chinese New Year season! While everyone enjoys their standard 9-course meals, we decided to go get the poon choi =) What is poon choi? Poon Choi (pronounced: Phùn-tshoi), also known as pun choi or Big Bowl Feast, is a traditional type of dish originating from Hong Kong village cuisine. It is served in wooden, porcelain or metal basins.

The RM 398 combo comes with shark fin's soup, yee sang, lap mei fun, vege as well as the poon choi!!!!!!!

It was said that Poon Choi was invented during the late Song Dynasty. When Mongol troops invaded Song China, the young Emperor fled to the area around Guangdong Province and Hong Kong. To serve the Emperor as well as his army, the locals collected all their best food available, cooked it, and because there were not enough containers, put the resulting dishes in wooden washbasins. In this way, Poon Choi was invented.

Okay - enough with the wiki info. Lets check out the foooddddd....
