One of Ipoh’s premier hotels, Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Suites, has unveiled menus for three different celebrations to wrap up the Year of the Boar, and also to welcome the Year of the Rat.

This is a mega celebration where guests will be entertained by not only song and dance, but also Chinese acrobatic performance and Sichuan opera-style face mask changing. In addition, diners will receive a complimentary bottle of red wine per table, and the opportunity to participate in a lucky draw, where interesting prizes are to be won. That’s not all.

If you are looking for extra ‘ommph’ in your meal, add on the Chinese New Year Gourmet Poon Choi (盆菜), that is priced at RM498 or RM688 (with abalone). This traditional luscious one-pot Big Bowl Feast with at least 20 ingredients, including roasted chicken, smoked duck, Ming prawns, shark fins and fish maw, is also available for takeaway, plus the crockery pot for added convenience. Just reheat it at home and start digging in.
Kinta Riverfront Hotel’s Chinese New Year Gourmet Poon Choi (盆菜) can be ordered one week before Chinese New Year, with collection beginning on Chinese New Year Eve.
Definitely, just by looking at the above, you would have a headache deciding on which to opt for. PRO TIP: First, narrow down your celebration, followed by budget. Yeah, it’s not that difficult, isn’t it? Gong Xi Fa Cai, Xīn nián kuài lè!
