Brunch on North­ern Flavours, Hong Kong

Wine & Dine - - TRAVELLER -

How about a change from the usual brunch sus­pects of eggs bene­dict and wagyu burg­ers? When in Hong Kong, head to stylish Chi­nese restau­rant Hu­tong, for its new Fēng Wèi week­end brunch (HK$428). An al­co­holic op­tion (HK$200) of­fers free-flow Veuve Clic­quot Cham­pagne, wines, spir­its and a se­lec­tion of Asian-in­spired cock­tails.

Lo­cated on the 28th floor of One Pek­ing in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hu­tong is decked out to re­sem­ble a tra­di­tional Chi­nese court­yard house. In its evoca­tive set­ting, soak in the panoramic view of Victoria Har­bour, while feast­ing on a spread of ap­pe­tis­ers, dim sum, hot dishes and sweet desserts, in­clud­ing

18 north Chi­nese dishes given a cre­ative spin. Tuck into an aro­matic seared foie gras with os­man­thus smoked cod­dled egg, with a rich smoky ac­cent; the im­pres­sive red lan­tern crispy soft-shell crab served in a tra­di­tional Chi­nese gift bas­ket; and the 12-hour braised beef rib with herbs in lo­tus leaf, and shrimp, kim­chi and mozzarella spring roll. End on a sweet note with matcha tea gluti­nous rice balls with sweet potato, and in­dul­gent steamed bao brushed with gold and filled with egg yolk cus­tard. Mean­while, be en­ter­tained with tra­di­tional Chi­nese arts like rainbow cal­lig­ra­phy, Sichuan face chang­ing per­for­mances and kung fu tea-pour­ing demos.

28/F One Pek­ing, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
