The Pond Chill Out or Chilli?

[12/06/17] 

We’ve all been there – one gent starts talking conquests and the others can’t help but up the ante.

Sometimes our ego can get us into trouble. Some men think they can read women’s minds, but end up in the dog house (or worse). Some over-estimate their tequila tolerance and pay the price the next morning. And some gents think they can handle spice but the fact is they’ve only tried kimchi, burritos, and wasabi.

Sichuan is among the world’s spiciest cuisines. If you want to tantalise your spicy palate, go to The Pond on the roof of Elements mall in Tsim Sha Tsui. Boasting authentic modern Sichuan and Beijing cuisine, served in the dining room, the bar, or on the terrace, the restaurant’s innovative menu includes a palate-pleasing appetizer, ma po tofu French fries, topped with minced pork in firey, lip-numbing chilli, the perfect spicy kick for palate explorers. For a sea-to-table experience, you can even pick your own seafood at the restaurant’s open-style seafood counter and have it cooked your way. Other taste bud-teasers include the famous Sichuan tan tan noodles and the dumplings in chili sauce, both of which offer the genuine flavours of central Chinese cuisine. Revitalise your tongue with one of the bar’s signature cocktails; Honour Cheers is an infusion of smooth bourbon whiskey with Chinese xao mei tea, Rosso Italian vermouth, nutmeg syrup, and orange peel bitters. The bar’s happy hour starts at 3pm, so you can cool your palate before things heat up.

Nothing separates the men and the boys quite like a chilli.

Think of it as a steamy summer precursor.
