Poon Choi is traditionally eaten layer by layer and is usually filled to the brim with premium ingredients.

Poon choi for abundance

This one-pot dish feast for P28,888 nett is good for five persons.

          Lo Hei is known to bring prosperity.

Lo hei for prosperity

Celebrate togetherness and toss up good fortune: carrots for good luck, white radish for good job opportunities, salmon for abundance, golden crackers for wealth, and more. It is said that the higher the ingredients are mixed and lifted, the more prosperity it is purported to bring. Lo Hei for five persons is a P6,388 nett and P9,888 nett for eight.

           Tikoy or nian gao represents harmony and is usually eaten on the first day of the year to bring happiness, good health and wealth. 

Tikoy for harmony

Lunar New Year celebrations are never complete without nian gao or locally known as tikoy as it is considered good luck to give and receive. This delicacy has been a staple in every household during the Lunar New Year as it represents harmony and joy. Man Ho’s tikoy gift set for P1,088 nett comes with one ingot or gold bar tikoy and six canele tikoy encased in a gold can.
