At recent I attended a tasting event at Dragon-i, the guests included myself were showered with delicious gourmet. We were well seated and we kept busy with fresh fruit juices and Chinese tea while a huge colourful platter of ‘Yee Sang’ appeared right infront of us ready to be indulged. Got to confess, my main hard to resist mission was to smack lip myself into their famous treasure pot. This time I was informed that we were going to try out their Signature Prosperity Abalone Treasure Pot which cost RM688++ that came with a mixture of the most exquisite quality Chinese foods available, including 6-heads braised premium Australian Abalones, premium Japanese Sea Cucumber, authentic shark’s fin, premium Japanese dried scallops, specially selected fish belly, premium fish maw and twelve more quality ingredients, filled with Dragon-i’s signature broth. It was totally a gastronomical indulgence, heaven to me.
We started of with the Yu sheng that came with prawns and salmon raw fish, it was presented with beautiful colours that filled with excitement. “Adoreable as it looks, deliciously as it tastes.” Other selection is available too that comes with just salmon raw fish for RM48(half portion) and RM68(one portion) or fresh prawn with jelly fish at RM68(half portion) and RM78(half portion) or Australian abalone and salmon raw fish at RM98(half portion) and RM138(one portion). Truly a Chinese New Year delicacies.
We were lucky on that day as Dragon-i specially presented and treated us a whole roast piglet. It was truly fabulous as I was craving for it. It was roasted to perfection, the way I would like my piglet to be.
Dragon-i also created the heavenly goodness Prosperity Abalone Treasure Pot priced at RM388, and serves 6 to 8 people. Under the skilled hands of their chefs, the pot is prepared with ten-heads braised premium Chilean abalones, Australian sea cucumbers, Japanese dried scallops, Japanese dried Oysters, Premium Mushrooms, fresh sea prawns from Pantai Remis, fish maw, roast chicken, roast pork belly, Golden Money Bags, pork balls, abalone mushrooms, yam, black moss, Chinese cabbage, broccoli, deep-fried beancurd skin and radish in premium pork bone soup. The soup enhances the taste of the fresh ingredients, promising one juicy bite after another that will leave any food lover wanting more.
According to history, in the Chinese language, the Treasure Pot is known as Pen Cai, which literally means ‘a basin filled with food’. Filled with meats and vegetables, its irresistable taste is the result of all its ingredients soaking up the glorious juices and flavours from the soup and broth that have been braising in the pot. A tradition that came from the walled village communities in China where getting together to eat this massive meal was an important affair, it has now evolved into a festive event in many Asian countries. In Hong Kong, some places will set up outdoor seating with massive communal tables, each with its own Treasure Pot in the middle for everyone to dig in. Uniting everyone for a hearty and wholesome meal, it is no wonder the Treasure Pots have been one of the most significant dishes throughout Chinese celebrations.
