After the usual customary speeches etc,
there was the inevitable VIP toss of the yee sang,
It is definitely a refreshing change to the traditional, although since it was my first yee sang of the season, I would not have minded the good old traditional type with loads of raw fish that glide down your throat. But this was good too. RM68++ for half mai and RM98++ for full mai.
Golden Treasure Poon Choy is priced at RM298++ for 5 pax and RM498++ for 10 pax.
Sauteed Scallops and Prawns With Asparagus and Fresh Lily Buds. I still think no one does scallops as well as chinese restaurants, minimalist, but always brings out the full flavour of the scallops. The toasted macadamias added extra crunch to this dish, and well, who can say no to asparagus.

RM9.80++ per serving
