It Takes Two To Spoon

HK Magazine - - DINING -

De­spite an in­flux of new-wave, “funky mod­ern” brunches in the city, some­times the clas­sics still prove to be the best. For un­beat­able panoramic har­bor views and home­made ar­ti­sanal brunch dishes ex­e­cuted with fi­nesse, spend a re­lax­ing Sun­day at Spoon by Alain Du­casse (In­terCon­ti­nen­tal Hong Kong, 18 Sal­is­bury Rd., 23132256), now of­fer­ing a $888 brunch in­clu­sive of a glass of cham­pagne, and a se­lec­tion of wines to pair with the pa­rade of clas­sic brunch dishes. As you take in the city sky­line, you’ll be pre­sented with a warm bas­ket of vi­en­nois­eries, plus home­made or­ganic muesli. Munch on a se­lec­tion of ar­ti­sanal home­made breads slathered with pre­mium Bordier but­ter as you peruse the mains, in­clud­ing meat or seafood and an oven-baked “cookpot” of ce­real and sea­sonal veg­gies. There are more good­ies to pack in be­fore the main event ar­rives, from Iberico ham and pick­les to home­made salmon gravlax and eggs pre­pared any way you want—scram­bled, sunny side-up, fried, poached with truf­fle and herbs… Of course, brunch at this In­terCon in­sti­tu­tion wouldn’t be com­plete without a se­lec­tion of fine French cheeses (the smellier the bet­ter) and a tempt­ing ar­ray of desserts by pas­try chef Oliver Lannes: in­clud­ing sugar-free op­tions, if you still hap­pen to be count­ing calo­ries at the end of the day.
