Next time when you’re in Sungei Buluh, head to Jeff Lee Kitchen for “poon choy” (aka “Big Bowl Feast”), a mish-mash of several goodies. But you need to call ahead a day earlier. The restaurant is air-conditioned and serves other dishes that are pretty tasty. Parking is a breeze as it is located opposite the wet market.
"Poon Choy" was invented during the Soong Dynasty (960-1279) in China. When the Mongols invaded China, the Emperor fled to Kwangtung Province. To serve the Emperor and his army, the populace collected their best food available, cooked it, and because there were not enough containers, put the resulting dishes in wooden washbasins. Thus, “poon choy” was invented.
