Mooncakes Erupting with Volcanic ‘Golden Lava Custard’ Celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival at The Drunken Pot

August 14, 2019 Dining No Comments Email Email

Trendy hotpot destination The Drunken Pot is erupting into this year’s Mid-Autumn festivities with volcano-inspired mooncakes. Renowned for revolutionising Hong Kong’s hot pot tradition, The Drunken Pot is now making its debut on the mooncake scene with ‘Golden Lava Custard’ versions of the iconic traditional pastry.

Priced HK$268, ‘Golden Lava Custard Mooncake’ gift sets of six are in ornate recyclable metal with oriental artwork of a ‘Goddess of the Sea’ with a modern young Asian twist representing both tradition and Hong Kong’s vibrant cosmopolitan scene.  The vivid design is styled after a gigantic ‘street art’ mural symbolising The Drunken Pot brand at its Tsim Sha Tsui branch by Hong Kong artist Ben Pickering – illustrating fishing boats and fruits of the sea with the hot pot tradition of sharing.

With limited production of 1,000 sets only, The Drunken Pot’s exclusive ‘Golden Lava Custard Mooncake’ recipe is highlighted by top quality, healthy ingredients from fresh local farm eggs and authentic vanilla pods to pastry made from European butter, with less sugar.  The magic happens when they are warmed briefly in a microwave, and the ‘molten’ custard explodes from within like a volcano of savoury and sweet flavours.

The ‘Golden Lava Custard Mooncakes’ can be purchased through, The Drunken Pot’s hotlines (852) 2323-7098 / 2321-9038 or visit the two branches in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui in person; and now available for pick up until 12 September 2019.

Orders placed directly while dining at either of the sister restaurants also enjoy a special bonus – with a complimentary signature dish of ‘Hanging Premium Sliced Angus Beef Short Ribs – Small’ (valued HK$188) for every two tins reserved.

“It is fascinating to see how the mooncake tradition has evolved with modern versions popping-up in recent years,” said The Drunken Pot founder Vivien Shek. “We are confident that our first own distinctive version with low fat, low sugar and no preservatives will find a lot of fans and be a big hit.”

Since launching in 2015, The Drunken Pot has become a social media phenomenon for its winning concept of ‘new age’ hotpots at The Drunken Pot Tsim Sha Tsui, themed after a rustic fishing market at 2/F, No.8 Observatory Road, and The Drunken Pot Causeway Bay, with breath-taking views over Victoria Harbour from 27/F, V Point, 18 Tang Lung Street.

Both restaurants reinvent the hotpot tradition with premium ingredients and innovative recipes in venues bursting with energy and contemporary style against the backdrop of trendy ‘street art’ and chill-out music with spicy urban grooves.
