There’s a new comfort food joint in town. Focusing on friendly service, quality portions and affordable prices, Second Street Comfort Food & Bar newly opened on Second street (of course) this summer.

WOM recommends: Bomb the bay omelette
Blacksalt serves up classic favourites with an Indian twist. The BS fry up is a unique spiced-up version of the classic English fry-up, with 2 runny yolk fried eggs, tandoori pork sausages, baked kidney beans with a variety of spices, thick cuts of bacon and okra fries. The “bomb the bay omelette” is a gigantic tortilla (Spanish omelette) stuffed with sweet potatoes and topped with mandras candied bacon (thick cuts of bacon lathered with a sweetly spiced sauce) green mango pickle and a sunny side quail egg. Another notable option is the roti roll, the Indian twist to the breakfast burrito using handmade wholemeal flatbread stuffed with eggs and other add-ons such as sausage, all flavoured with a variety of vegetables and spices before wrapped in a roti and grilled to crunchy perfection. 14 Fuk Sau Ln, Sai Ying Pun, 3702 1237; fb.com/BlackSaltHKStack
WOM recommends: Running Honey Pancake

Stack, as you might have guessed from the name, serves some excellent sweet and savoury pancakes. During the weekend their weekend brunch menu includes their signature Running Honey Pancake that comes with honey, honeycomb, cream cheese and caramel dressing. Other savoury brunch items include their All Day Breakfast (fry-up) and the Benedict’s Duck, a twist on the eggy favourite using duck eggs instead of chicken eggs resulting in a unique texture and gamier scent. G/F, 1 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun, Western District, 2549 9787; fb.com/stackhkKAUM

St Barts 
WOM recommends: Egyptian eggs
The breakfast at St. Barts is as classic as it gets. St. Barts is a great choice for those looking for a simple but quality breakfast. Non-greasy and very European, St. Barts brunch/breakfast choices focus on the very homely to the very intricate. The breakfast menu includes classic favourites of pastries & jams, pancakes and porridge (European expats: yes, we know you’ve been looking for porridge, here’s your porridge). As well as a few more exotic options such as their Egyptian eggs that comes with toasted Turkish bread topped with rocket, avocado, goat cheese, poached eggs and pistachio dukkah with beetroot hummus. G/F, Hang Sing Mansion, 76-78 High Street, 2803 2986; casteloconcepts.com
