Poon Choy literally means ‘vegetable basin’, it’s a
Contrary to its history, Poon Choy now is served in a pretty pot for a large group of diners to share, somewhat a trademark of this dish. Some restaurants even arranged for takeaways, so it’s not unusual for customers to take the pots home as the price of Poon Choy sometimes includes the price of the pot it’s served in.
This the scrumptious royal dish comes in layers fresh seafood and meats in fascinating orders – ingredients like homemade fish cake, dry oyster, chestnut, pig knuckle, stewed pork belly, fish maw, pacific clams, chicken claws and mushroom are arranged at the bottom before more lavish components like Australian abalone, scallops, fried dry shark fin in egg, poached farm chicken, fried pork ribs and homemade pork meatballs are densely assembled over the top. Shredded lettuce peek out the top for colour, while clusters of fresh succulent prawns are arranged in a row filled to the brim.
A hearty pot brimming with layer upon layer of ingredients takes long and tedious hours of preparation. The ingredients are cook individually for optimum taste; some poached, some fried, some stewed and some are being roasted before the layering begins. To maintain the temperature, a portable fire burner is kept underneath the pot.
