Pen Cai, Poon Choi, or Treasure Pot (basin dish), is a traditional Cantonese dish which originally symbolises unity. Today, it is a popular CNY dish that commonly consists of all the necessary delicacies which carry auspicious meanings to make your Lunar New Year as fulfilling as possible. 

So, where is the best place to have this dish as authentic as possible? Traditional Cantonese Yan Restaurant offers its treasure pot in a simple yet luxurious presentation that carries 18 different kinds of ingredients to feed up to 10 people. The dish contains must-eat ingredients for CNY, such as fishes, fish maw, abalone, sea cucumber, roast pork and even sea moss. And every ingredient is carefully prepared by being simmered with braised duck gravy.

While you're at the restaurant, why not try their signature roast suckling pig or their house special caramelised pork?
