Their signature 5 in 1 soup base: papaya with baby shrimps soup, seafood soup, squid ink seafood soup, spicy sichuan soup, satay soup.
Premium sliced Angus Beef Chuck. Very good quality beef.
Seven Flavor Cuttlefish Balls. Looks good and taste good, real chewy texture.
The Drunken Pot opened to raving reviews as a hip hot pot spot in Tsim Sha Tsui. Great chill ambiance which is rare to find as hot pot places are usually quite traditionally designed and decorated. Their signature dishes are worth trying, especially the 5 in 1 soup base. We tried a lot of their other dishes which tasted great and we were not disappointed with any dishes. Though the price is a little steep, this place uses quality ingredients and you won’t find another hot pot place like it in Hong Kong.
The beef hanging on a rack with ice beneath it is to be honest, gimmicky. But the fact that the cut of beef is well selected, they redeemed themselves. Service was attentive, only negative we found was their inhouse drinks are on the sweet side. We highly recommend this place as a hot pot date night place and also for all those that love hot pot, this one is definitely worth a try.

We love the minimalism.
Canele, Canele, Canele, Canele.
The coffee lab.
Green Tea Latte with the Canele.
Omotesando Koffee has been opened for a little while on the new Lee Tung Avenue in Wanchai. With its minimalistic design, you may have walked past this shop a few times before noticing it. We went for a coffee break during the weekend and it was quite full. We opted for the Iced Mochacchino, which is on the sweeter side as advised by the cashier. I do like sweets, so this was a hit for me, though if you don’t like your coffee milky, this coffee shop is not for you. The green tea latte was very milky and full of tea flavor, not as sweet as other green tea lattes you normally find at other coffee shops.
The canele and matcha brownie were quite delicious, we loved the chewy texture of the matcha brownie. The seating space is quite brightly lit and this place would be a great place to get some work done while enjoying a nice coffee. I would definitely come back, but at $63 a mochacchino, it’s definitely on the expensive side. We still think it’s worth it though.

What a gem hidden in Wanchai. Great decor in and out.
Cute decorations like this throughout the restaurant.
We opted for a Burger and Buffalo Wing Lollipops. Yum.
Buffalo Wing Lollipops. We don’t know where you will find better Buffalo Wings than here. And the blue cheese sauce is on point.
Stack Your Own Burger: What a burger! Complete DIY, you can even choose bunless.
Ted’s Lookout is definitely a gem in Wanchai, this place has been opened for awhile but this was our first visit. It definitely did not disappoint. We had a light lunch and only chose two items, it was a good amount of food for two person. I would highly recommend this place for a relaxing weekend lunch place, good vibes only indeed.
The Buffalo Wing Lollipops were absolutely divine. We have had our fair share of buffalo wings in Hong Kong and they normally do not resemble buffalo wings from North America. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased with these ones, especially the blue cheese sauce on the side. Wow. As for the burger, everything was DIY and we opted for a beef with the usual lettuce and tomato and a truffle sauce. The burger was good, but not the best in Hong Kong with the huge competition. The price was also quite high too as you had to pay per topping and even sauce was extra money. All in all, the wings are highly recommended and we would recommend this place to friends looking to chill. A great place for tourists too as it is definitely a photogenic place.
