Trendy hot pot destination The Drunken Pot is wooing party crowds gathering late to beat the sweltering heat with a ‘Midsummer Night Madness’ special after 9.30pm. Prices for late-evening groups are marked down by 30% on all signature specialties except seafood from now until 31 August 2019.
The brand renowned for reinventing Hong Kong’s hot pot tradition also continues defying convention with one of the most unlikely concepts ever imagined in the history of hot pots – new recipes for durian, the ‘King of Fruits’.
The innovation is introduced with Durian Squid Balls (HK$98 / 3 pcs) that are even playfully shaped after the beloved tropical fruit, bringing a rich, sweet creaminess to bland squid – and destined to be an Instagram sensation! Using the D24 breed of durian, they are slightly less overwhelming than the most powerful variety, but nonetheless a unique ingredient for the hot pot recipe book.
Deep-fried Durian Pop (HK$88)
The Fiery Boston Lobster and Seafood in Mala Spicy Tomato Broth on Fire (HK$428). Seafood is stir-fried in wine and spicy mala sauce ‘a la table’, completed with a broth of Boston lobster, clams, mussels, shrimps, squid and tomato.
The Drunken Zoo (HK$298) – a combo of all The Drunken Pot’s uniquely-crafted signature cartoon-style meatballs – from “Crafting Bear” and “The Drunken Chicken” to “Happy Penguin”, “The Drunken Pumpkin Balls” and “The Drunken Piglet Dumplings”.
