Trendy hotpot destination The Drunken Pot is jazzing-up summer with two new interpretations of Hong Kong’s favourite chicken hotpots along with playful insta-worthy homemade deep-fried goodies, dumplings, fortune bags and new playful and Asian flavours from its sister restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay.

The Drunken Pot’s “Hot Pot on the Go” services are available online via with a 20% discount on the a la carte delivery menu, using the exclusive discount code “TDPSD”.  With self-pick-up available at Causeway Bay (excluding 15 – 28 July 2020) or Tsim Sha Tsui branches, delivery is priced HK$290 but free for net purchases over HK$2,500.

New Classic Chicken Pot (HK$388) and Korean-style Chicken Pot (HK$388) are the latest crowd-pleasing hotpots to enjoy with spectacular flaming for dine-in, or without flaming at home – the first is a decadent “Drunken Pot” version of a Hong Kong favourite, the second seasoned with spicy Korean sauce.  The Drunken Pot’s signature pork broths are included – allowing diners to order other hotpot dishes for an ultimate hot pot experience after finishing the chicken.

For a complete hotpot experience, both chicken pots are also available in sets, priced from HK$358 per person for 2 or 4, featuring pork bone broth and a range of signature dishes including Meat Platter of Pork, Beef, Lamb and ChickenFresh ScallopsDeep-fried Homemade Bean Curd with Seaweed RollsFreshly-made Tri-Colour Egg NoodlesSalted Egg Yolk Fish Cracklings and Vegetable Platter.

Something completely new, extravagant and especially insta-worthy is also on the a la carte dinner menu – Golden Lobster Broth with Crispy Rice (HK$268). The spectacular debutante is whole Boston lobster in a golden chicken broth, presented with crispy rice.

Delightful additional choices for orders also include new flavours of fortune bags – Spicy Chicken Fortune Bag (HK$88) of minced spicy chicken seasoned with homemade spicy sauce are perfect for pairing with the signature Sichuan-style Numbingly Spicy broth.

Korean-style Seafood Fortune Bag (HK$88) is inspired by the famously spicy Korean troop pot, but suggested with a milder seafood or meat broth, and Indian Curry Fortune Bag (HK$88) is an aromatic creation for pairing with milder pork bone broth.

New flavours of deep-fried bean curd rolls meanwhile launch the first new versions for three years of a sell-out favourite since The Drunken Pot opened.

With a traditionally playful twist, Deep-fried Homemade Bean Curd Roll – Your Favourite Doublecheese Burger (HK$58) is inspired by the all-time favourite burger as perfect appetiser for hotpot feasting.  Deep-fried Homemade Bean Curd Roll – Your Favourite Mala (HK$58) can be enjoyed on its own or dipped in broth to soak up more aromatic flavour.

For a perfect deep-fried match for hot pot or appetiser with a favourite beer, new flavours of crunchy fish cracklings are a marriage made in heaven.

Three new versions themed after Asian foodie capitals include Vietnamese-style Fish Cracklings (HK$68) with lime, herbs and a spicy sauce, Singaporean-style Pepper Shrimp Fish Cracklings (HK$68) flavoured with garlic and pepper crispy local favourite, and Typhoon Shelter Style Spicy Fish Cracklings and Softshell Crab (HK$68) with tingling and numbing spiciness.

All signature dumplings that are freshly handmade daily can now also be ordered in half portions, ideal for couples or smaller groups.

Among new recipes, Bow Tie Dumplings (HK$88), named after their resemblance to lime-green bow ties, are stuffed with spinach and cheese. The Drunken Dove Dumpling (HK$88) is filled with ‘drunken chicken’ with Chinese Huadiao wine, and Black Truffle, Shrimp and Crabmeat Fortune Bag 2.0 (HK$88) is a new presentation of the popular Black Truffle, Shrimp and Crabmeat Dumplings.

“Through all the trials and tribulations of dining restrictions, we are determined to carry on meeting and exceeding expectations for our fans to continue enjoying creative new twists on Hong Kong’s most exciting and flavoursome hotpots,” said The Drunken Pot founder Vivien Shek.

Delivery sets priced from HK$298 per person with something for everyone from meat to seafood-themed menus are also available on, perfect for home enjoyment with friends and family, tailored for personal preferences and groups of all sizes. A range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are also available for delivery, including The Drunken Pot’s private label premium sake from Nagahama in Shiga.

“Just like our contemporary modern re-invention of traditional hotpot, we have designed exceptional packaging for most convenient and efficient takeaway in this new era of home-office dining, for simple re-heating with great taste and elegant presentation, as if served at our restaurants.” added Ms Shek.

Since launching in 2015, The Drunken Pot has become a social media phenomenon known for authentic hot pot broth recipes in contemporary presentation.

Both restaurants reinvent the hotpot tradition, bursting with energy and contemporary style against the backdrop of trendy ‘street art’ and chill-out music with spicy urban grooves – at The Drunken Pot Tsim Sha Tsui, themed after a rustic fishing market at 2/F, No.8 Observatory Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, and The Drunken Pot Causeway Bay, with breath-taking views over Victoria Harbour at 27/F, V Point, 18 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay.
