X-rated Valentine's Day clay pot rice at CHOP CHOP

At modern siu mei restaurant Chop Chop, traditional clay pot rice takes on an X-rated spin this Valentine's Day with toppings of abalone and Chinese sausage for its exclusive V day special, Abalone Preserved Sausage Clay Pot Rice (HK$198). You can sub out Chinese sausage with Western sausage, if that's more your type. The other V day special is Show Me Your Love Clay Pot Rice (HK$128) - a play on the Canto pronunciation of sweetcorn and pork, which are the main ingredients of this dish. All the fun and jokes aside, Chop Chop does a serious clay pot rice. I tried it before via home delivery, and the flavors and textures were all on point, including the crunchy burnt rice on the sides. The V day clay pot rice dishes will be available between 1st February - 15th February 2021.


Price: From HK$128 including soup
