With spectacular views on the 27th floor of V point in Causeway Bay, The Drunken Pot provides the quintessential Hong Kong experience with an added twist. Originally known for their delectable hot pot, you can now enjoy a lovely lunch of some unique takes on traditional dim sum.

We started our lunch with Deep-fried Taro Swans ($48), crisp on the outside and soft on the inside their flavour is subtle and a good start to a meal. Next, we had Sakura Shrimp Pork Dumplings with Black Truffle ($62). Reminiscent of a Hong Kong favourite (siu mai) these dumplings are tender, delicately flavoured with truffle and beautifully presented. This was followed by a signature dish called the Drunken Mon ($42), bright pink monster shaped dumplings filled with cheese, pork and kimchi. The cheese was not very apparent and I expected the kimchi to be spicier but instead found a subtle flavoured bite perfect to have over lunch.

The Drunken Pot should really be commended on their ability to make dim sum so cute you almost don’t want to eat them. The Squid Dumplings in Supreme Soup was presented as lovely translucent squid swimming in a green pool of nutty, watercress like soup. Their Penguin-shaped Lotus Seed Paste Buns ($48) were not only lovely to look at but the steamed bread was soft and airy and the lotus seed paste was sweet and smooth.

Seafood lovers be sure to try the Steamed Seafood Rice ($78), filled to the brim with delicious scallops, mussels, prawns, abalone mushrooms and many more goodies all served on top of a lotus leaf, this dish is hearty and filling.

toffee egg twists

To end off we had Toffee Spun egg twists ($38). Crispy bow-tie shaped pastries drizzled with syrup and topped with a tower of cotton candy this dish is the perfect way to end a meal. Sticky fingers and happy hearts will have you feeling like a kid again, mama!

Sassy Mama Tip: This restaurant is ideal for a lunch with guests who are visiting Hong Kong also, the kids will love the fun cartoon-like dim sum!
