Brunch on Northern Flavours, Hong Kong
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.
