Pun Choy

Pun choy is a traditional food of villages in old rural districts of Hong Kong. Different types of dishes are cooked separately and then arranged in layers in a large wooden basin to serve. Village folks ate pun choy at banquets celebrating festival, birthday and wedding. There are now only a few villages left in the New Territories of Hong Kong. Nevertheless, the traditional pun choy is now becoming a popular cuisine in the City during Chinese New Year.

Modern pun choy is now served in wooden, aluminium, clay or stainless steel pots and featured much more variety and expensive ingredients rather than the traditional simple meat and vegetables used in the past. There is also pun choy for vegetarians.

Below are some of the pun choy offered by restaurants in Hong Kong.
