The Drunken Pot Mother’s Day Hotpot Tribute to China’s ‘Last Empress’

The brand renowned for modernising Hong Kong’s hot pot tradition has created “The ChrysantheMUM Pot for The Queen”, reinventing the beloved broth of Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), arguably the most powerful empress in Chinese history. Famed for her extravagant imperial lifestyle and obsession with looking beautiful, the legendary Qing dynasty ruler insisted on freshly-picked chrysanthemum petals sprinkled on her hotpot to stay young and pretty – a beauty trick from traditional Chinese medicine, to release toxins, cool the body and nourish skin.

“The ChrysantheMUM Pot for The Queen” which is priced at HK$288, can be ordered a la carte or in a set from 1-31 May at the restaurants in TST and Causeway Bay. With smooth egg white topping, the instaworthy pot is sprinkled with edible flowers, for a richer texture and luscious, sheeny glaze resembling an imperial gown.
