Poon Choi or Poon Choy is a traditional Chinese dish originated from Hong Kong with over several hundred years of history. The dish is served with lots of different ingredients that are arranged layer by layer in a big wooden or steel bowl. The ingredients on top are normally fresh seafood, such as abalones, prawns, and scallops, while other ingredients, such as meats or vegetables, are placed underneath, so that they can absorb the essence of the gravy.
