The Drunken Pot Celebrating Festive Season with Fun Seasonal Specialties and Exclusive Promotions

September 12, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

Trendy hot pot specialist The Drunken Pot is welcoming the festive season – from Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day through to Halloween – with new fun specialties and promotions to match the celebratory mood at its fashionable sister restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay.

The fashionable sister restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay have become Instagram sensations since reinventing Hong Kong’s hotpot tradition with innovative recipes, flavours and ‘new age’ artistic presentation – in ‘hotspots’ bursting with energy and contemporary style against the backdrop of vibrant ‘street art’ and chill-out music.

Stepping into the celebratory spirit of both Chinese and Western festivities, three stunning new hotpots are styled especially for festive groups to share.

Buddha Jumps Over the Wall (HK$688) revives an ancient Chinese tradition with a luxurious slow-cooked chicken broth with Jinhua ham, vegetarian shark’s fin, abalone, lean pork meat, dried mushrooms, scallops, sea cucumber and fish maw – perfect for celebrating in style with friends and family.

It is well-known that the Buddha Jumps Over the Wall is originated in the Qing Dynasty. It is said that the emperor at that time was tired of the taste of premium delicacies, so he ordered the chef to invent some new dishes. The chef racked his brain, rummaged through various cooking recipes, and consulted many folk food experts, but there was still no solution. Finally the chef prepared the dishes for the emperor, he simply put all ingredients into the pot and tried his best to deliver the delicacies to the emperor. Unexpectedly, it attracted the old monk next door to climb and jump the wall, requested to taste the dish, and the dish is named after this story.

Taiwanese-Styled Buddha Jumps Over the Wall (HK$288) is an alternative spicier version, with a magical elixir of Taiwanese herbs and spices infused in a flavourful hot pot of stewed chicken soup with pork ribs, dried scallops, quail eggs, bamboo sprouts, deep-fried taro and chestnut.

Hong Kong’s growing number of vegetarians are also catered for with a fabulous Vegetarian Hot Pot Feast Set, styled for parties of either four (HK$1,888) or six (HK$2,588). A magical 5-in-1 broth sets a new benchmark for hotpot gastronomy with Pear and Gum Tragacanth with wolfberry; Tomato and Potato Soup with corn, black fungus and cherry tomato; Black Truffle with Assorted Mushrooms Soup; Thai-style Vegan Tom Yam Kung Soup, with carrots and okra; and spicy Chinese Vegan Hot and Sour Soup, with traditional ingredients of bamboo sprouts, shiitake, egg, black fungus and tofu.

A dozen vegetarian dishes go with the extravaganza, highlighting Okra, White Cabbage, Black Fungus and Vegetarian Mapo Tofu Dumplings; Vegetarian Fish Balls platter; platter of Vegetables, Corn and Mushrooms; Bamboo Fungus, Bean Curd Cubes, Inaniwa Udon, Deep-fried Homemade Bean Curd and Seaweed Rolls.

Snacks on the side are spotlighting the Cucumber Sushi Rolls, Marinate ‘Stinky’ Tofu and Deep-fried Marmoreal Mushrooms.

Especially spooky for Halloween, served during the day until 7 November, The Drunken Pot’s Halloween Pumpkin Truffle Pot (HK$288) highlights a scary rich and hearty pumpkin, black truffle and assorted mushroom broth with fried noodles and pumpkin-like squid balls, complete with ghostly carving. Also celebrating Halloween is Halloween Glutinous Rice Dumpling Balls (HK$88 / 3pcs) – a savoury dish stuffed with different hearty fillings, such as melted cheese and pumpkin puree.

Additionally, new a la carte dishes spice the menu, highly anticipated by Drunken Pot fans, including sweet and juicy Hokkaido White Sashimi Corn (HK$108 per set), Okra Dumplings (HK$88 / 3pcs) and White Cabbage Dumplings (HK$88 / 3pcs), Spicy Duck Maroon Jelly (duck blood) (HK$88), Taiwanese-style Spicy Guang Fish Maws (HK$138), Taiwanese Fried Stinky Tofu (spicy / marinate) (HK$88), and a trio Taiwan-Style Spicy Trio with Spicy Duck Maroon Jelly, Fish Maw and Stinky Tofu (HK$138).

The Drunken Pot has also launched ‘The Drunken Pot Secret Sauce’ featuring 12 ingredients with a hint of lime for a great taste of sweet and sour – perfect to pair with all kinds of hot pot ingredients, offered on complimentary basis.

Sensational new dessert sets on promotion in the evening at HK$228 are also destined to become sure-fire Instagram hits – Couverture Chocolate Matcha Cup with Cotton Candy & Cake; and Couverture Chocolate Taiwan Milk Tea Cup with Smarties & Oreo (perfect for sharing between 2 to 4 pax).
