Olé 16-Course Brunch

at Olé Spanish Restau­rant & Wine Bar Hong Kong

Exquisite Taste - - Best Branches -

Lo­cated on Ice House Street, Cen­tral, it's quite ex­traor­di­nary just how de­light­fully gen­uine this lit­tle bit of Spain man­ages to be. From the mo­ment you step in­side, gone are the tower blocks and bus­tle of the city, in­stead a vista of yel­low and white rough plas­tered walls awaits, full of nooks and cran­nies ac­cented with old cart wheels, Spanish pot­tery and paint­ings. It's a world within a world and one that has been of­fer­ing its ex­cep­tional menus for over 18 years. The menu is crammed with sub­lime re­gional dishes aug­mented by a se­lec­tion of clas­sic Spanish wines.

A re­cent in­tro­duc­tion has been Olé's 16-course brunch, avail­able ev­ery

Satur­day and pub­lic hol­i­days. The brunch is a cel­e­bra­tion of the most mem­o­rable dishes served through­out Olé's dis­tin­guished his­tory and comes with the op­tion of three free flow drinks pack­ages and the chance to add an ex­trav­a­gant serv­ing of aro­matic air-dried cured

Joselito Gran Reserva Jamón ham.

The brunch opens with a dozen Olé sig­na­ture ta­pas in­clud­ing gam­bas al ajillo, An­dalu­sian style clams, Iberico ham and chicken cro­quettes, deep-fried Spanish padron pep­pers and sautéed chorizo with gar­lic and chives. This is fol­lowed up by un­lim­ited serv­ings from the three main dishes: Se­govia style suck­ling pig, tra­di­tional Spanish seafood paella served in over­sized paella pans and paella of the day, all freshly cooked and served in ro­ta­tion. Af­ter a suit­able break, it's onto the dessert. Choose from ei­ther the fried milk with tof­fee re­duc­tion, caramel pud­ding, Spanish chur­ros with hot choco­late or the de­li­cious pears con­fit in red and port wine.

To com­ple­ment the free flow san­gria, cava, and wine pack­ages, a se­lec­tion of Olé cock­tails are avail­able, in­clud­ing re­fresh­ing Ap­ple and Gin­ger Punch and the Vir­gin Straw­berry and Cu­cum­ber Mo­jito. To com­plete the clas­sic brunch ex­pe­ri­ence, two gui­tar-vo­cal­ists ser­e­nade guests through­out with the del­i­cate rhythms of Spain.
