Spanish-style brunch @ Alzina Spanish Asador

Tired of the same old same old? We are loving Alzina Spanish Asador’s new weekend brunch semi-buffet that include Spanish nitbits such as iberico cold cuts, spanish chorizo stews, fish soup, Pan Con Tomate, and Manchego cheese. Along with these, popular brunch staples such as Eggs Florentine and Huevos Rotos (Broken eggs with roast potatoes and chorizo). Brunch special mains are available with the buffet, we recommend the Grilled Octopus with Chimichurri Sauce and the Grilled Iberico Pork Ribs.

British-style brunch @The Pawn

First of all….kids under 12 years old eat for free here. The Pawn, helmed by award-winning British chef Tom Aikens has started a new Weekend Brunch option that includes an option for free-flow pours and a fabulous Brunch Board. The Brunch Board includes a spread of creamy ricotta, crushed avocado, spinach salad, fresh crab meat and grilled vegetables. We recommend the Sweet Corn Pancakes with Grilled Avocado for a main dish, but British favourites such as the hearty Full English Breakfast will also be available for those breakfast traditionalists.

62 Johnston Road, Wan Chai, 2866 3444; thepawn.com.hk

 

French-style brunch @Seasons by Oliver Es

Michelin star restaurant Seasons is doing an exquisite French Sunday Brunch starting this season. Served as a semi-buffet, guests are invited to try the French ‘wine-and-dine’ experience with an option for free flow. The brunch buffet focuses on seafood specials such as the Maine Lobster, fresh French oysters, prawns and Alaskan crab legs. Along with a buffet of cold cuts and cheese, the brunch offer comes with a selection of egg dishes and a main dish. The eggs can be done in a variety of different ways, and the main courses boast classic French dishes such as the duck leg confit.  And for those sweet tooths, we really recommend the pear and almond tart.

Shop 308, 3/F, Lee Gardens Two, 28 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay, 2505 6228; seasonsbyolivier.com

 

Japanese-Brazilian-style brunch @Tokyolima

Tokyolima’s Omacasa Brunch entails four courses of small plates, hot mains and desserts, with an option for free flow. The term ‘Omacasa’ roots from the Japanese word for “Omakase” which is a style of eating where the menu is chosen by the chef themselves, and dishes are given in artistic stages unbeknownst to the guest. That being said, it’s best to not disclose what exactly is in the menu, but here’s a hint: expect some unique ceviche and izakaya style skewers with Peruvian twists.

18 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, 2811 1152; tokyolima.hk

 

Thai-style brunch @Cafe SIAM

Thai restaurant Cafe SIAM will be launching an all-you-can-eat brunch offer in their restaurants. Guests are invited to a 2-hour buffet that include Thai favourites such as the Gaeng Khiaw Waan (spicy green curry with coconut milk) and their unique Pad Thai. Other meaty nibblets such as the Peek Gai Tod (deep fried single-bone chicken wing in Tom Yum flavour) and their Koh Moo Yang (char-grilled marinated pork with tamarind toasted rice and shallot dip) will also be available to try. 

21 D'Aguilar St, Central, 2851 4803; cafesiam.com.hk
