Traveling to Hong Kong is incomplete without trying out authentic Chinese restaurant in the City. Hong Kong has made quite a name on night market and street foods at the lively and busy streets of Mongkok at night. Most of the authentic Chinese restaurants you can try are located in Kowloon or HK Central.
Tourists coming from different countries crawl to every street trying to get a taste of the street foods in Hong Kong or authentic Chinese cuisine.
Last June of this year, I went to Hong Kong and grabbed the chance to dine at one of the authentic Chinese restaurant in the City. Thanks to Ms. Zoe of JIN Communications for arranging a lovely dinner for me and Noel at The Drunken Pot, Causeway Bay branch.
How to get there
Option 1: Via MTR
Hop on to the nearest MTR station and find your way to the Island Line then drop off at Causeway Bay MTR station. Walk towards 18 Tang Lung Street, located at the 27th floor of Causeway Bay building is The Drunken Pot.
Address: 27th floor, 18 Tang Lung St, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Option 2: Via Taxi
For hassle-free transportation and if you don’t mind spending extra cash, you can always hire a taxi and advise the driver to drop you off at the Causeway Bay building in Tang Lung Street.
The Drunken Pot – An Authentic Chinese Restaurant in Hong Kong
The Drunken Pot offers a variety of food you will surely enjoy while dining at the 27th floor of a building and having the city lights for a view. I always find it quite fancy having dinner in a restaurant with a fantastic view. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people looking for a chic restaurant in Hong Kong.
Although it was my first time to eat Cantonese dish and I didn’t know how to properly eat them, I super enjoyed the set of meal that was arranged for me and Noel. It was a really sumptuous dinner and most of them are really good!
The Food – The Drunken Pot Chinese Restaurant in Hong Kong
The Dream Garden of Live Flowers Hot Pot Broth is definitely the cherry on top of everything I’ve eaten here! My eyes literally glittered in amazement after the Hot Pot Broth was served in the middle of our dinner table (watch it on my Youtube channel here). It has a smoke-like air and colorful flowers on top of a white cloud-like stuff (which turned out to be made out of egg whites after asking the server what it was, lol). It was pretty amazing and fascinating to be looking at it in disbelief that it’ll be the actual broth where we will be cooking our dumplings, meat, seafood, and vegetables. I mean it’s too beautiful to be a broth and dip something in it right?!
In addition to that, we were served Piglet Shaped Dumplings and signature items like Hanging Premium Sliced Angus Beef Short Ribs, Deep-Fried Homemade Beancurd and Seaweed Rolls, Hand-made Happy Penguin, Vegetable Platter, Salted Egg Yolk Fish Cracklings, Freshly Made Egg Noodles, and Sugar Cane Couch Grass Root Drink/Begonia Fimbristipula Tea for our beverage.
My personal favorites were the Deep-Fried Homemade Beancurd and Seaweed Rolls and the Salted Egg Yolk Fish Cracklings. Don’t forget to order these, they’re super yummy!
The Staff – An Honest Feedback
The staff at The Drunken Pot were very friendly and accommodating to us. Although I had a little difficulty communicating with the first server since he was talking to me in Chinese even though I already told him to speak in English. But still the other staff were easy to communicate with since they could understand and speak well in English and they were kind enough to answer all my questions and requests.
I remembered requesting to their head staff if I could get a table behind the glass windows so I could get a better view of the city lights from the outside and he was happy to give it to me.
There are 2 branches of The Drunken Pot in Hong Kong, one is located in Tsim Sha Tsui and the other one is in Causeway Bay. Both are accessible by train (MTR) and you can easily find them by using google maps after getting off the MTR station. I chose the branch in Causeway Bay because the restaurant is located at the 27th floor of the building and I thought it’d be great to get a view while eating, and I wasn’t wrong!
I recommend the Causeway Bay branch for those who are looking for an authentic Chinese restaurant with a fantastic view!
