Top 5 Champagne Brunches
Champagne, fine dim sum, and world-class art come together in this award-winning restaurant. Settle down in the upstairs Salon at Duddell’s (actually our preferred space, as we find the dining room a little packed and loud at times) and enjoy all-you-can-eat dim sum and glasses of chilled Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, or Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque. We recommend getting second and third servings of the steamed scallop dumplings. During Easter, Duddell’s will be open Friday to Monday for brunch and children will receive an Easter egg treat. On Mother’s Day, all mothers will receive a special tea gift.
HK$480 per person; HK$580 with free-flow Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut; HK$1,380 with free-flow Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque
The legendary Catalunya brunches are booked up at least a month in advance, which is no huge surprise considering the line-up: the signature bikini sandwiches, all manner of eggs, and various stations brimming with fresh breads, charcuterie, cheeses, salads and seafood. The showstopping Segovian-style suckling pig is brought to your table, along with other dishes such as whole salt-crusted fish, veal shank and lamb thigh. The brunch comes with free-flow soft drinks, though you can add HK$1,588 for unlimited Krug Grande Cuvée.

If Tsim Sha Tsui on a weekend is on the cards, make sure to plan some downtime at the Hyatt Regency’s old-school European restaurant to enjoy their Sunday semi-buffet brunch. Hors d’oeuvres and salads are yours for the picking at the appetiser station, and mains include hearty dishes such as half a Boston lobster thermidor, roasted US rib of beef, and roasted French spring chicken, with a dessert table to finish. Free-flow Laurent-Perrier champagne is available for an extra HK$388 per person.

There are few better places to spend a Sunday than at The Principal, where you can enjoy a fabulous lunch lubricated with NV Delamotte Brut, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger champagne and a procession of globetrotting dishes courtesy of chef Jonay Armas. There’s Sunday Roast “Korean style”, “Flintstone” ceviche, and an array of cheeky snacks under the label of “The Picnic” – think a selection of cold cuts, hummus, marinated anchovies and liver pâté. The location is also handy for waddling off into the Star Street precinct afterwards to do a bit of retail therapy.
HK$740 per person with free-flow NV Delamotte Brut, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Strictly speaking, the brunch at this Maximal Concepts joint serves prosecco, not Champagne; still, the label of choice is Nino Franco, the same brand used by Giuseppe Cipriani when he created Harry’s Bar’s legendary Bellini. The Sunday brunch buffet offers fresh seafood and homemade pastas, plus the very agreeable Teurel porchetta, as seen in our Epicurean Express video here.
HK$390 per person; HK$220 extra for free-flow Nino Franco prosecco
