Chinese New Year 2022 – Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year

Ryan from West Chester sent us this note after he attended one of Chef Poon’s CNY events:

“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!
