Trendy hotpot specialist The Drunken Pot is celebrating its 3rd anniversary and the festive season at itsfashionable sister restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay. The brand renowned for reinventing Hong Kong’s hot pot tradition with premium ingredients and innovative recipes is crafting festive hotpot sets and cute Christmas specialties from 10 to 31 December with an ‘early bird’ offer on delivery orders – along with warming new lunch sets and drinks styled especially for winter.
A lunchtime anniversary promotion also offers a 50% discount on the a la carte menu – except for hand-made meatballs and beef – before 3pm from 10 December, 2018 to 15 February, 2019.
Black and White Truffle with Assorted Mushroom Broth (HK$288) headlines the festive season hotpot specialties. Truffle broth has always been one of brand’s most popular dishes and this new specialty combines the best of both, with black truffle sauce and premium Italian white truffle oil as key ingredients.
The intense, musky aroma perfectly complements the pork bone broth for meat dishes, with exclusive blaze and antler mushroom added for a rounded flavour of the forest. The final festive twist is an enchanting ‘Christmas Tree’ decoration styled from gourd vegetables.
When it comes to leading the pack with creative Instagrammable presentation, The Drunken Pot also excels itself with its cute Drunken Snow Man (HK$88 / 3 pcs), shaped from cuttlefish paste stuffed with truffle sauce, and delightful Assorted Mushroom Fortune Bags (HK$88 / 3 pcs), combining minced shrimp with blazed and antler mushroom.
A delectable festive dessert finish to a sumptuous feast is Matcha Souffle (HK$68), a fluffy and airy green tea soufflé using Uji Matcha, oruber-trendy, jet black Charcoal Souffle (HK$68), popularised as much for its purported health benefits as for its Instagram-worthy appearance, both made upon order.
