OUR 2013 LATE NIGHT EVENT WAS A SUCCESS!

Ryan from West Chester sent us this note after he attended …

“The weather was cooperative, the festival was entertaining, and the food was spectacular. But Chef Joe’s affability and earnest engagement of the patrons stole the show.  Of course from my perspective, and the perspective  of my date, the opportunity to spend some moments with Chef Joe simply in his element out and about in Chinatown, treating us both as if we were age old friends despite the fact that we proved relative strangers, served as the most superlative facet of the event.  The experience reinforced the premise of which we were both already aware, that Chef Joseph Poon serves as not only a credit to the culinary community and Chinatown particularly, but more broadly as an irreplaceable asset and cultural ambassador to the city itself.”      

Thanks, Ryan.  We agree!

Year of the Horse -2014:

The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people’s ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as ‘Qianli Ma’, a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).

Strengths
People born in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be reconciled to failure, although their endeavor cannot last indefinitely.

Horse years: 1906 * 1918 * 1930 * 1942 * 1954 * 1966 * 1978 * 1990 * 2002 * 2014


Chef Poon will not be creating a Chinese New Year Menu for 2014 because of an extensive travel schedule for demos and appearances.
