Poon Choi is one of the traditional dishes of the Chinese New Year in the Canton area.  It implies the goodwill of family reunion and wealth in the new year.  Its preparation is not as simple as it looks.  This year, the hotel presents two signature Poon Choi selections for guests.

Rice Cake is another symbolic Chinese New Year festive goodie in the Canton area.  It symbolises progress in the Chinese New Year.  The Spring Festival Rice Cake includes Coconut Rice Cake and Osmanthus Rice Cake moulded into a fish shape.  It has a yummy taste and represents lots of luck and lots of mammon every year. 

Moreover, the Home-Made White Turnip Cake and Taro Cake are made without any preservative, making them the healthiest food choice for all guests.  The two gift boxes, Prosperity and Premium Rice Cake Gift Boxes, include different kinds of rice cakes and other New Year goodies, and make good gift choices for friends and relatives.  The Rice Cake is priced from RMB138 per box and the two kinds of Festive Rice Cake Gift Boxes are priced at RMB588 and RMB268 per box.
