Momojein: Modern Korean dishes by Chef Lim Hee Won

Since I haven’t tried too many Korean dishes (I usually stick to gimbap or bibimbap), I figured I would finally try Momojein. Helmed by Korean Chef Lim Hee Won (who is incredibly sweet and down to earth, and is well known in Korea for being on a reality TV cooking show), Momojein offers diners a modern take on a range of traditional Korean dishes. Chef Lim Hee Won has recently introduced a handful of new dishes to Momojein’s menu that I had the chance to try.

Beef and Liberty BBQ Brunch: An all-you-can-eat and drink rooftop affair

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.

The Pawn Brunch: Delicious dishes on the balcony of a Hong Kong heritage building

I’m always on the hunt for a good brunch spot in Hong Kong and had recently heard good things about The Pawn. Having only been there previously for drinks, I jumped on the opportunity to head into Wan Chai for a long, lazy Saturday of eating and drinking. If you’re like me and aren’t a fan of buffets where you’re constantly interrupting conversation to fill your plate up with mediocre food, then The Pawn brunch is a great option. The starters and dessert are brought to the table as sharing plates and each guest chooses their own main course. Throw in some fab balcony seating vibes and bottomless Moet & Chandon, and you’ve got yourself one fantastic brunch.

Pici Hong Kong: An authentic, homemade pasta bar in Wan Chai

Pirata Group is taking Hong Kong by storm this month with two new restaurant openings: TokyoLima and Pici Pasta Bar. After the sustained success of their other Italian restaurant, Pirata, their decision to open a pasta bar in an up-and-coming neighbourhood in Wan Chai was a smart move. Pici Hong Kong’s focus is on creating authentic, homemade pasta dishes in a cozy, modern dining space. What’s more, the price of each dish is around the HK$100 mark, making for exceptional value in a city where diners often pay a pretty penny for less-than-stellar food.

Ham and Sherry: A Tapas-style Brunch Affair

The newest brunch offering in Hong Kong is at Ham and Sherry; the quaint Spanish tapas restaurant in Wan Chai with a whole lot of personality. The a la carte menu is reasonably priced, with most dishes around HK$98, and the staff ensured my glass of bubbly was never empty. Trying to separate themselves from the plethora of other brunch spots in the city, Ham and Sherry offers diners a selection of Spanish tapas to share, alongside free-flow cava and Estrella, every Saturday and Sunday.

Coyotes: All-You-Can-Eat & Drink Mexican Brunch

If you’ve ever gone to Coyotes (one of my favourite Mexican restaurants in Hong Kong) during the week for their buffet lunch, and thought to yourself, ‘I really wish they offered this on the weekend too’, then you’re in luck. Coyotes has just launched a Sunday all you can eat and drink brunch that is great value and perfect for those looking to switch up their regular weekend eggs benedict routine.

Samsen: Authentic Thai Street Food In Hong Kong

Thai food is amazing; simple as that. I relish in the thought of planning a trip to Thailand, if solely for the fact that I’ll be gorging myself on incredible food for less than a couple bucks. Now, thanks to Adam Cliff, formerly of Chachawan, Hong Kongers can head to Samsen for their favourite Thai street food. Very authentic dishes set in a cozy, vibrant restaurant make Samsen the perfect choice if you’re itching for a Thai feast without having to fly to Thailand.

le Relais de l’Entrecôte Hong Kong: Simple Steak Frites

Originating in France, le Relais de l’Entrecôte has since brought its simple steak frites concept (and that unique sauce) to Hong Kong. The dinner or weekend set menu is HK$288 and includes a salad, two portions of steak, and unlimited fries; a bargain in this city. The dessert selection at le Relais is also ridiculously good, making this an easy choice in a city with far too many options to choose from.
