It Takes Two

Bennifer, Tomkat, Brangelina and now even the infamous Speidi. . . it seems the media will stop at nothing to morph two separate power players into one unstoppable sensation. But of all the super combos out there, the best one of all time is undoubtedly Brunch. There’s nothing like a good weekend Breakfast and Lunch hybrid to satiate your cravings, cure your hangovers and help you while away an afternoon in style. Dig in to the city’s latest Brunch revelations. . .

Union J
Always have trouble deciding between pancakes and eggs? Fret no longer! The dynamic duo behind Union J has just introduced their Super Sunday Brunch, which will allow you to choose any five Brunch items off their delicious menu. Standout dishes include French toast with strawberries, almonds and whipped cream, Huevos rancheros with grilled corn salsa, spicy black beans, and guacamole, and Smoked salmon with a toasted H & H bagel (jet fresh from NYC), and herb cream cheese. Gym bunnies can go for healthy and hearty 5-grain cinnamon apple oatmeal or homemade yogurt and granola, while late night partiers can retox with hangover cure pitchers of Bloody Maria, a bloody mary with sauza tequila and lime or Spiked Lemonade with vodka, cucumber slices, crushed lemons and mint. (HK$188 + HK$188 for free flow sparkling wine, 2537 2368)

The Grill at The Grand Hyatt
All glammed up and no place to go? Look no further than the poolside terrace of the Grand Hyatt. Set in the centre of a lush scenic garden, The Grill is now playing host to a decadent Weekend Barbeque Brunch featuring healthy salads, fresh seafood on ice, char-grilled meats, fish and veggies, just baked breakfast treats, signature homemade desserts, fresh juices and smoothies, and much more. Wash it all down with unlimited “Chandon Brut” sparkling wine, Mimosas, Kir Royals, Bellinis and selected wines and beers. We suggest you bring some reading material, you might end up staying until dinner! (HK$328 or HK$398 with unlimited drinks, 2584 7722)

Posto Pubblico
Lunch and Dinner at this New York-style Italian SoHo hotspot are off to a smashing start with tables booked out at least one-week ahead. Now to add another ingredient to their stellar recipe for success, Posto has just introduced Weekend Brunch featuring freshly baked breads, frittatas and the much adored and almost impossible to find New York favourite, breakfast sandwiches. Menu items will change seasonally, but this month’s highlights include a Scrambled egg, prosciutto and melted asiago cheese sandwich on home-made casatiello bread, Grass fed NY strip steak and eggs, and a special recipe Potato and egg pizza. Book now before the word gets out! (2577 7160)

Uno Mas
Aside from their fantastic food, the Spanish are also known for their serious partying stamina. In keeping with this, Uno Más has recently launched their “naughty but nice” weekend long Brunch. This 5-course Brunch tasting menu is full of traditional Spanish Breakfast and Lunch favourites that are the perfect antidote to a big night out, including specialties like White truffle oil-pan-fried eggs with chorizo and onions on grilled bread and Scrambled eggs with asparagus, spring onion and garlic chips. Chef Izquierdo has created a selection of homemade juices and jams, which complement the food perfectly, but nothing tops off this decadent meal better than his Churros con chocolate, a uniquely delicious take on the classic Spanish dessert. (HK$148 + HK$98 for free flowing Cava, 2527 9111)

The Pawn
This April, The Pawn will be commencing a Sunday outdoor Barbecue Brunch on their gorgeous roof terrace, which promises to be just like that casually intimate weekend BBQ you always wanted to have at home, only better! The all-you-can-eat menu kicks off with your choice of hair of the dog, Bloody Mary, Kir Royale or Mimosa, followed by unlimited wines and house spirits, sumptuous salads and sides, and sizzling favourites like Sage marinated pork chops with apple sauce, Lamb chops with minted pesto dressing and Lemon and thyme chicken hot off the grill. Desserts like Grilled banana with butterscotch sauce and ice cream and Almond bakewell tarts ensure a sugary sweet start to your idyllic Sunday afternoon. (HK$388, 2866 3444)
