Poon Choi, Guinness and Axian (Jason Yeoh)
Yes with those three it was going to be a night of good food, drinks and entertainment! Headed over to Bangsar Shopping Centre on 30 January with Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers Valerie and Karen for the Guinness Chinese New Year Media Gathering at the Grand Imperial Restaurant. The restaurant was tucked away in a corner of the old wing (same wing as twentyone Tables & Terrace) and it took us a while to find it but eventually we did.
To start off the night, loads of Guinness draught of course before we were ushered to the tables for dinner. Most of the guests were eagerly anticipating the ‘star’ of the ‘Guinness Feast of Abundance’ which was to be the Golden Poon Choi which was chosen to highlight three (3) characteristics of Guinness – more taste, more look and more soul.
Exactly how do they match up?
More taste – Guinness has more bold flavours than most other beers while the Poon Choi is totally packed with flavours from its quality and bountiful ingredients.
More look – Notice how a pint of Guinness draught is served to you with a beautiful head that’s the product of a two (2) part pour? Well the Poon Choi also comes with a stunning presentation with the abalone, prawns, scallops and sea cucumbers right on top of the dish.
More soul – Guinness has been brewed for over 250 years and the brew masters take immense care to ensure that the product which you get is of the highest standards. In olden times, the Poon Choi takes up to three (3) days to prepare starting with the gathering of the ingredients to the separate cooking of the ingredients to the final assembly.
