The sets are priced at MOP6,800* and MOP6,380* for six persons respectively.
Poon Choi, or the Big Bowl Feast, a delicious mix and layering of goodness inside a fortune pot, is a Chinese New Year essential in Cantonese culture, as it symbolizes affluence and togetherness that makes a perfect communal feast for festive gathering. Both Chún and Imperial Court offer two kinds of Big Bowl Feast set, priced from MOP 1,680*, which are filled with abalone, fish maw, Japanese dried scallop, sea cucumber and over 10 other luscious ingredients.
Sichuanese restaurant Five Foot Road delivers a taste of the most authentic Sichuan festive delicacies to Macau, the Nine Dishes Banquet.
