Brunch is one of the singularly most popular weekend past times in Hong Kong for a good reason: the workweek is over and you can finally sit back and relax around a table with good friends, food, and drinks. Most restaurants in the city offer a range of brunch options for diners on the weekend, but we have fallen head-over-heels with one in particular: Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen. Ladies and gentleman, trust us when we say that heading to Bread Street Kitchen’s is going to be the best decision you’ll make all weekend.
Zuma is a well-known restaurant chain found in various large cities throughout the world, so it’s no surprise that Zuma hosts one of the most popular Sunday brunches in Hong Kong. Thankfully, starting November 14, Zuma is launching their Saturday Sessions; a different take on their Sunday brunch with an emphasis on cocktails and sharing platters. Only $450 HKD for 2.5 hours, where you can sip on an array of drinks and eat a satisfying amount of Japanese food while listening to Zuma’s in-house DJ spin some awesome beats.
Having already dined at the Mr Fox section (the second floor of the restaurant) of Mr & Mrs Fox for dinner a little while back, I was tempted to try Mrs Fox on the main floor. Mrs Fox is the more casual section, offering a different menu and atmosphere for diners. Though the menu is rather small, where Mrs Fox lacks on quantity, it makes up for in quality. Mr & Mrs Fox is a great option if you’re in the Quarry Bay area and are looking for a restaurant that offers classy comfort food in a modern setting.
Finding a good spot for lunch in Hong Kong, especially in Central, can be overwhelming (what’s up with these $200 + for a three course executive set lunch.. C’mon now people, this is lunch during the work week we’re talking about!). Since I’m basically a fat kid at heart, I’m a sucker for a good buffet and have thankfully stumbled upon another (check out my review of 208 Duecento Otto and Lily & Bloom‘s weekday semi-buffet lunch) great find in Central for a weekday lunch pick-me-up: Libertine.
If you’ve ever tried to find a restaurant in Hong Kong for a good value weekday lunch, you’ll know that it can be overwhelming thanks to the sheer number of venues offering their “weekday set lunch” promotions. So, which one do you choose? What’s the best bang for your buck? Though I may not be able to give a straightforward answer to this, I am on a mission to find some of the cities best weekday lunch spots and 208 Duecento Otto in Sheung Wan is first on my list.
A few weeks ago Foodie Club teamed up with Maximal Concepts for the first section of their MaxFoodLab challenge: The Ultimate Fast Food Burger. As part of this partnership, Foodie had 90 burgers to give away from Blue Butcher for lunch over three days. I was lucky and quick enough to get a hold of one of these freebies!
