The Drunken Pot Invigorates Hong Kong’s Hot Pot Dining Scene With Edible Hot Pot Art and Stunning Artworks

March 26, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

To welcome the season of art, renowned hot pot destination The Drunken Pot invites dynamic young artists around the world to showcase their works in its two locations, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, bringing brilliant and innovative artworks to enliven the hot pot dining experience.  The first collaboration kicks off this month, with Hong Kong-based Gallery Artyze, featuring vibrant pieces that The Drunken Pot founder Vivien Shek, and French-Taiwanese gallery founder Pyt, have artfully curated.

A range of vigorous artworks will be on display in The Drunken Pot’s Causeway Bay location from March, and later in its flagship restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui, thus perfectly complementing the restaurant’s energetic atmosphere and further enhancing diners’ dining experiences.  This also ties in perfectly with The Drunken Pot’s “melting pot” communal ambience, “where different people and ideas get together, bringing both something new and cutting edge”.

Not only is there fabulous artwork to admire in the restaurant, but also Vivien Shek believes, “Diners can further express their creativity through their food, like hot pot, which is an integral part of Hong Kong culture”.

The brand new innovative “Everybody is an Artist” hot pot set (HK$468), launches on 21 March, allowing diners to flex their artistic muscles and use edible “paint brushes” made from natural food colouring, like green tea, orange, strawberry and purple yam to “paint” on top of their creamy soup base.  This new hot pot broth highlights fresh Boston lobster in a fresh and enticing tomato broth with whipped cream on top.  Guests are also welcome to decorate their edible artwork with such scrumptious sweet and savoury ingredients as cotton candy, chocolate chips, dried seaweed strips, fresh bananas, blueberries and more, creating their one of a kind hot pot broth.

In addition to decorating the surface of the soup base with an artistic flourish, diners can also indulge in some cuttlefish paste that has been creatively sculpted into three little crafty colourful bears – The Crafting Bears can be ordered as part of the set, or as an a-la-carte dish priced at HK$88.  Not only are the bears cool and funky, they also represent the unique DNA of The Drunken Pot.

To welcome the delightful seasons of Spring and Summer, The Drunken Pot debuts an array of new delicacies on the à la carte menu.  Salted egg yolk flavour is all the rage, and as an appetiser, the restaurant has created “Salted Egg Yolk Flavoured Xiao Long Bao” (Soup Dumplings) (HK$68). The treasured pork dumplings have an even more enhanced flavour thanks to the golden gems adding richness and indulgence.

There is also “Salted Egg Yolk Flavoured Handmade Fish Noodles” (HK$48), made from deboned fresh grass carp that is made into a fish paste and a sumptuous amount of salted egg yolk added; the signature Deep-Fried Homemade Beancurd and Seaweed Rolls” (HK$68) are reinvented with the crowd-pleasing salted egg yolk, together with “Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin Cracklings” (HK$68).

Guests can also add other new tantalising dishes to add to their hot pots that have a spicy flair. There are “Sichuan-Style Numbing Fish Maw” (HK$138), and “Sichuan-Style Numbing Duck Blood Cubes” (HK$88) that are sure to please spice lovers.  Moreover, The Drunken Pot also raises the bar when it comes to traditional beef balls with its new gourmet “Wagyu Beef Balls” (HK$88) that are a mouth-watering addition to any hot pot, while “Handmade Carrot-Shaped Cuttlefish Balls” (HK$88) feature freshly minced cuttlefish and carrot filling.  Another creative touch is the “Taiwanese Savoury Mochi” (HK$58) that promises to be a popular hit to add to any hot pot concoctions.

The new seasonal specialities are available from 21 March to 31 August at The Drunken Pot Causeway Bay, with breath-taking views over Victoria Harbour at 27/F, V Point, 18 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay, or The Drunken Pot Tsim Sha Tsui, themed after a rustic fishing market at 2/F, 8 Observatory Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

In celebration of the launch of the Spring and Summer 2018 promotion, The Drunken Pot is launching an interactive Facebook game from 1 April to 31 August 2018.  All participants can follow a few simple steps to take part in the competition to win prizes that include free lunch for a month!  The 20 lucky diners can win a set of 30 lunch vouchers.

Both restaurants have reinvented the hotpot tradition, bursting with energy and contemporary style against the backdrop of trendy ‘street art’ and chill-out music with urban grooves.
