Hong Kong’s hippest hot pot specialist The Drunken Pot will be chilling the long hot summer with a stunning new tropical reinvention of the beloved social dining tradition, health-enhancing pots garnished with refreshing coriander and pineapple inspired hot pots and drinks.

The exciting Ultimate Summer Fiesta promotions continue underlining the brand’s ultra-modern twist on hot pot diningthrough July and August against the backdrop of dazzling ‘street art’ and chill-out urban grooves at its trendy sister restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay.

The new “The Pineapple Mania” (HK$288) is a breath of tropical sea-breeze.  Dry ice create a cool, misty cloud over a whole pineapple in a hot pot of Seafood and Pork Bone broth with a dash of pineapple vinegar.  Using pineapple vinegar from Taiwan, a popular ingredient in modern cooking, the skin of the pineapple was used rather than the actual fruit to bring out the fruity flavour.

The Drunken Pot also shakes-off hot pot’s old fashioned image with a promotion extolling the multiple health benefits of coriander.  “The Jumbo Coriander Hot Pot” (HK$288) serves four broths in one pot featuring Hearty Beef BrisketSpicy Laksa SeafoodNumbingly Hot Sichuan and flavoursome Tomato, Potato And Pork Bone, complete with generous slices of melon topped with one catty of garnishing coriander which are packed with essential oils, vitamins and minerals good for the skin, cholesterol, digestion and blood sugar levels.

To elevate the dining experience for coriander lovers, The Drunken Pot introduces a juggernaut-sized Ultimate Coriander Set including the Jumbo Coriander Hot Pot, hand-made, soft-centred Coriander and Chinese Preserved Egg Beef Balls (6 pieces) and Coriander and Chinese Preserved Egg Seafood Dumplings (6 pieces) at HK$388. 

The “Home-made Beef Ball with Coriander and Preserved Egg” uses fresh topside beef, and “Seafood Dumpling with Preserved Egg & Coriander”, highlighting a mix of seafood including shrimps, scallops and coral mussels which can be ordered separately with other broth options at the price of HK$88 (6 pieces).

Adding to the cheer is The Drunken Pot’s “Summer Pineapple Fiesta” promotion, with cool, colourful “Pineapple Sake Smoothies” blending Sake ice cubes with refreshing home-made pineapple juice and The Drunken Pot’s signature house Sake – priced HK$168 for four 100 ml glasses.  While teetotallers may opt for the brand new Pineapple Smoothies at HK$48 (330 ml) or a sharing portion at HK$78 (750 ml) celebrating the joyous summer season.

As summer gets into full swing, The Drunken Pot introduces a Sake Tasting Challenge this season, priced HK$98 for four 45ml glasses of The Drunken Pot’s private label house sakes, highlighting The Drunken Pot’s JunmaiYoikigen Junmai GinjoNanbu no Shizku Junmai Daiginjo and Haku Raku Sei Junmai Daiginjo.  Any guests correctly identifying the four individual Sakes wins the Sake set for free.

With breath-taking views over Victoria Harbour, The Drunken Pot Causeway Bay is at 27/F, V Point, 18 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay, seating up to 138 guests with three private rooms for up to 24. Themed after a rustic fishing market, The Drunken Pot Tsim Sha Tsui is at 2/F, No.8 Observatory Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, seating up to 150 for lunch or dinner, and 250 for cocktails, with six playful private rooms for up to 24.

Bursting with energy and contemporary style against the backdrop of trendy ‘street art’ and chill-out music with spicy urban grooves, The Drunken Pot has become a hotpot phenomenon for its ‘new age’ hotpots artistically presented with innovative recipes and flavours and ‘Sake bombs’ enlivening the social experience – to the extent that reservations are highly recommended.

The winning culinary concept also embraces jet-fresh sashimi and top quality seafood from premium suppliers, from Black speckled grouper and Alaskan king crab to lobster and tiger prawns – bringing Japanese flavour to the traditional Hong Kong hotpot experience.

The name of The Drunken Pot underlines the philosophy of evoking a ‘melting pot’ communal ambience “where different people and ideas get together, often producing something new”. The ‘drunken’ reference also alludes to the inevitable influence of ‘Sake bombs’ in hot pots, and signature house Sake as the beverage of choice.
