Chinese New Year is a time for families to reunite, along with receiving ‘ang pows’, launching fireworks and wearing new outfits. But one cannot deny that FEASTING together is an important part of the celebration!  😉

Well, did you know that the festive season would be incomplete without the traditional dish like ‘pen cai’, also known as ‘poon choy’ in Cantonese OR ‘Big Bowl Feast’??? And why so???

Originally from Hong Kong, ‘pen cai’, which literally means ‘vegetables in a basin’ is an indulgent affair where layers of ingredients are braised in a fragrant gravy. Customarily eaten during Chinese New Year, this festive casserole hotpot dish symbolizes prosperity and abundance.

To all you foodies out there, indulge your taste buds in this scrumptious Chinese treat from CANTON-i!


This dish consists of Braised Premium Chilean Abalone, Sea cucumber, Japanese Dried Oysters, Premium mushrooms, ‘Pantai Remis’ fresh sea prawns and many more!!!! Are you drooling already??? haha! Even better news for Hong Leong Bank Credit Cardmembers, as you get to enjoy RM50 off! OR if you’re cracking your head on what to buy for your loved ones this festive season, fret not, coz CANTON-i has Treasure Pot Cash Voucher for you! 😉

Apart from this festive dish, do also check out CANTON-i’ s wanton mee. Who could resist this? A bowl of well made wanton noodles that glides smoothly into your mouth, and so springy that they bounce up and down on the tip of your tongue. OHhhhhh.. speaking of the sunny smell of eggs too *drools*. Not forgetting the succulent prawn wontons and pork belly, which we may say a match made in gastronomic heaven?  Now thissssss.. you gotta try it yourself!

Any Char-roast Goose lovers out there? Here in CANTON-i is where you can try the exquisite Hong Kong-style roast goose. Using charcoal fire, the high, consistent heat of the glowing embers browns and crisps the skin on the outside and lightly chars the edges of the goose meat, while sealing in the juices. HHmmmmmmmm yummeh!
