Café on M Feast

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Café review -

The In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Grand Stan­ford’s all-day cafe is best known for its value-for­money buf­fet of­fer­ings, with sta­tions that in­clude a ded­i­cated oys­ter bar where chefs shuck ex­cel­lent-qual­ity (and usu­ally Aus­tralian) bi­valves to or­der. In ad­di­tion, there are the oc­ca­sional treats that you need to wait for—the roasted suck­ling pig is one, but when it’s ready, fol­low the snaking queue that ex­tends around the noo­dle and dim sum sta­tions. Roast rib of beef and lamb chops are prop­erly done, and the In­dian cur­ries ro­tate of­ten—but there will al­ways be some ex­cel­lent naan, cumin-scented pap­padams and fra­grant bas­mati rice. Desserts in­clude freshly-made crêpes, clas­sic Chi­nese pud­dings and ice cream mochi. Things can get hec­tic as din­ers jos­tle for the most pop­u­lar items, but ser­vice is friendly and ac­com­mo­dat­ing. Con­tem­po­rary and tran­quil, the sig­na­ture din­ing space in Quarry Bay’s East ho­tel is known for its floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows and boun­ti­ful se­lec­tion of global cuisines. Ideal for fam­i­lies and big groups of friends, guests can enjoy in­ter­na­tional dishes rang­ing from Ital­ian to Asian. The re­lax­ing and palate-pleas­ing semi-buf­fet brunch menu show­cases a fresh and mu­nif­i­cent ar­ray of selections. For starters, we en­joyed the pan-seared duck foie gras and maple-cured Ir­ish salmon. When mov­ing onto mains, the tan­ta­lis­ing wok­fried scal­lops and US corn-fed chicken supreme are great choices. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy the sig­na­ture chilled straw­berry souf­flé or the caramel and chocolate Con­corde.
