In case you found yesterday's watermelon pizza post a little too virtuous, this one may be more up your street: watermelon soju.
This is a fun cocktail idea for summer parties that I tried last night at U·Hang 유행, a Korean restaurant in Sai Ying Pun. Not sure of their recipe but from trawling online it seems you just need a watermelon, bottle of soju, some ice and a straw! Here is one recipe for watermelon soju: Not obvious in the picture is that this straw inserts in the bottom of the watermelon and is held in place by a bit of wire on top, meaning it works like a tap. Let me know how you get on!
U-Hang is another of the restaurants participating in the Food for Thought Sai Ying Pun event organised by Foodie and The Economist, Asia this Saturday. We also tried their fried chicken, 'slaw and pulled pork burgers, the latter of which the chef informed us is his favourite food when drunk. Couldn't agree more.
