6 Timeless Hotel Brunches In Hong Kong
August 10, 2018 | BY Emma Heyn
Brunch may be all over Hong Kong today, but it was the city's iconic five-star hotels that brought this beloved tradition to our shores, and they continue to reign supreme. From the finest champagne to the freshest oysters, we've rounded up five of the most exquisite hotel brunches in Hong Kong:
Nicholini's at Conrad Hong Kong
Set just beside the hustle and bustle of pacific place, Nicholini's provides a much needed respite from retail mania, and instead whisks you into the heart of Northern Italy.
With a wide range of Italian classics, including hand-made pasta, there's something here to suit everyone's tastes—though we do especially recommend the Grand Seafood platter, or the extensive brunch buffet, both of which showcase the best that Nicolini's has to offer.
Nicholini's weekend brunch is available on Sundays and is priced at HK$838 per adult and HK$358 for children aged 3 to 12.

Lobster Bar & Grill at Island Shangri-La
The secret of Lobster Bar & Grill's success is in the name. With a focus on fresh and flavourful seafood, it provides a reminder that the key to truly great food is very often simplicity.
We recommend trying their signature lobster eggs benedict with salmon brioche, perfectly paired with a glass of crisp champagne, both of which will ensure your brunch is as relaxing as it is luxurious.
The Weekend Lobster Brunch is available every Saturday and Sunday and is priced at HK$798 per person and includes free-flow Veuve Clicquot Champagne, red or white wine, beer and juice. Upgrade to Dom Perignon Vintage 2006 Champagne for HK$1,568 per person.

Clipper Lounge at Mandarin Oriental
Clipper Lounge is a Hong Kong institution, and their Sunday Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brunch is no less legendary, offering everything from a sumptuous raw bar, carving station, Peking duck to arguably the city's most impressive dessert selection. Make sure to act fast and book your table as this highly sought-after brunch often has a month-long waiting list.
Brunch at Clipper Lounge is available every Sunday and is priced at HK$688, with the option of free-flow Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut or Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Rosé Champagne for an additional HK$300. Children can enjoy the brunch for HK$418.

The Lobby at The Peninsula
As one of the most iconic dining establishments in Hong Kong, The Lobby at The Peninsula makes even the rainiest day in Hong Kong a delight.
Brunch is served here on weekends, offering classics such as eggs florentine and a seriously indulgent chargrilled breakfast wagyu burger. The three-course Weekend Champagne Brunch also includes a glass of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Champagne, a glass of juice and coffee or Peninsula tea.
The Lobby's Weekend Champagne Brunch is available every Saturday and Sunday and is priced at HK$528, and can be upgraded to include free-flow Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne for HK$848.

Tosca at The Ritz Carlton
Hong Kong isn't short of sweeping views, but even for city veterans, the views at Tosca are something to behold. Overlooking Victoria Harbour, Tosca provides a serene environment in the middle the Hong Kong heat, but of course, it's not just about the view.
Tosca's Sunday brunch menu boasts a wide variety of classic Italian dishes, which are sure to have your mouth watering in minutes. We recommend you try the polpo (grilled octopus served with sweetcorn and celery). Just make sure you leave room for desert—especially their oh-so-rich and velvety tiramisu.
Brunch at Tosca is available every Sunday and is priced at HK$938 with free-flowing Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut, HK$1,388 with free-flowing Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut or Rosé, HK$2,688 with free-flowing Louis Roederer Cristal 2009 and HK$398 for children aged 3 to 12.

Tiffin at The Grand Hyatt
Following five months of refurbishment, Tiffin is back in business, and proves itself to be one of the best spots for an indulgent Sunday brunch.
Fresh shucked oysters, lobster thermidor, and pan-seared foie gras are just some of the essential dishes to try on your next visit—all while enjoying the unique ambience and calm provided by Tiffin's chic interior design.
Brunch at TIffin is available every Sunday and is priced at HK$698 for adults and HK$349 for children.
