There are so many great brunch options around Hong Kong that it can often be quite the task to find something that sticks out from the crowd. One thing that this city lacks is a good selection of al fresco dining, so when I heard that Beef and Liberty were throwing together a massive weekend rooftop BBQ for a very reasonable HK$258 for as much as you can eat, I had to go (in fact, I’ve now been twice!). The Beef and Liberty BBQ Brunch is a great option: laid back rooftop vibes, selection of salads and grilled meat, DIY burger station, and free-flow drinks.
Vibes at the Beef and Liberty BBQ Brunch
If you’ve never been up to the roof of Beef and Liberty in Wan Chai, you should definitely check it out. There were quite a lot of other groups having a great time when I went, which certainly added to the already fun atmosphere. While I liked almost everything about the vibe on the rooftop, I think having live music of some sort would potentially be a great addition.
Salad bar, BBQ, and dessert
All of the BBQ-ing takes place right on the rooftop, so you know you’re getting fresh, straight from the grill meat. The salad selection is simple, with choices of a classic caesear salad, coleslaw, or (my personal favorite) heirloom tomato and goat cheese. I then moved onto the DIY burgers, where I picked up a giant, juicy burger patty that must have been at least 3 inches thick and stacked it high with almost all of the toppings available: lettuce, bacon, red onions, pickles, and cheese. Not to give myself too much credit, but this was definitely one of the best burgers I’ve had in awhile. If red meat isn’t your thing, you could also opt for the piri piri chicken or the ribs (or all three!), which were all drool-worthy.
Besides the burger, I could not get enough of the pulled pork. The crackling was addictive and the pork was so tender, it practically melted in my mouth. Be sure to save enough room in your belly for dessert because you won’t want to miss the bread pudding and giant cookie skillet with cream.
I really loved the Beef and Liberty BBQ brunch and think it’s a great choice in a city where rooftop restaurants are hard to come by. I enjoyed a tonne of fantastic food and plenty of prosecco on their laid-back roof, all for a very reasonable price. This is definitely a brunch I would 100% recommend.
