Brunch is the most important meal of the day – says everyone. I often get asked for brunch recommendations, so here are some of my favorite brunch options, from casual spots to special occasion gatherings.
1). NOC – if you’re looking for a quiet brunch spot with great coffee and avocado toast, this is your spot. I really love the nutty flavor of their Iced Black Coffee and their large selection of all day breakfast. You must also try their shakshuka if you’re craving some Mediterranean flavors. There are several locations around HK island, but my favorite is the SYP location because of it's industrial looking interior and high ceilings.
2). Blue Supreme – Tucked into an alley in Sheung Wan, Blue Supreme is one of my favorite chilled brunch spots. I’ve tried almost all of their items on their brunch menu and I have zero complaints. The stand out dishes to me were the Shakshuka, lamb burger, duck confit burger, and the elvis presely toast. Known for their selection of draft beers, their food is also equally as good. They are also a dog friendly establishment so bring your pups! My favorite draft is their cherry beer (forgot the name of it). It kind of tastes like kombucha to me.
3). Big Bay Cafe – If you feel like venturing to the “Dark side,” I would highly suggest heading to the gorgeous Kerry Hotel restaurant called Big Bay Cafe. If it’s a nice day out, definitely sit outside and enjoy the view of the harbor. It cost around 428HKD for the semi-buffet and 240$ more for free-flow drinks. It’s great for big groups because the restaurant is HUMONGOUS! There a station for japanese sushi, korean bimbimbop, DIY noodles, indian and much more! The dessert bar was very overwhelming with everything from macarons to gelato. I highly recommend this for a special occasion or casual brunch. Make sure to order the lobster from the grill section – get your bang for your buck!
4). Duddells - If you're a dim sum lover, this is a great option for a special occasion. i love their beautiful outdoor terrace (only if it’s not too hot) and their free flow dim sum bunch. There are quite a large number of selections for dim sum, including a peking duck station. The restaurant is quite huge and it’s great for group gatherings. Prices are not exactly wallet friendly at around 850HKD for free-flow.
5). Catch – Who can say no to an Australian brekkie?? This place is very busy on the weekend, so they open seats up next door at their sister restaurant. Prices are reasonable, perfect for a casual brunch. Make sure to try their big ben and dirty eggs – I normally rotate between these two dishes whenever I visit.
