On the Hunt – Easter 2015

Our city is looking pretty good right now…  The sun is finally shining, spring is in the air and we’re on the cusp of a very rare extra-long holiday weekend. So, what will you do with five full days of freedom lying ahead of you? We have a few ideas to ensure your Easter holiday in Hong Kong is filled with sun, fun, feasting, bubbly and lots of chocolate eggs. What are you waiting for? It’s time to get hopping!

Boozy Easter Brunch
What’s better than having a Friday off from work? Kick-starting the long weekend with a boozy brunch on the town. Whether you want to hunt for the latest egg dishes in between potent Bloody Mary’s at Fatty Crab, feast on seafood, tapas and copious amounts of paella while guzzling free-flowing sangria at Boqueria, dig in to more delicate dishes like Caviar Omelets and Truffle Eggs Florentine while sipping champagne at Cocotte, or feast on unlimited dim sum along with veggie infused cocktails like the Jack Jazz Rabbit and Green B-Easter at Duddell’s, these four spots have you covered with Easter brunches all throughout the holiday weekend, starting Friday 3 through Tuesday 7 April.

Foodie Egg-stravaganza
If making the most of your holiday involves indulging in some serious eats, we recommend the Italian Easter Sunday brunch at 121BC, which includes artichoke fritti, kingfish, spring vegetables, lasagne verde, roast lamb and more. Need to take this up another notch? Go for the ‘Big Fat Greek Easter’ at Souvla, available on both Easter Sunday, 5 April, and Greek Easter Sunday, 12 April, featuring salads and hot appetizers, a buffet of meats and traditional Greek Easter breads and desserts. If living large means dining at the top, look no further than Hutong’s famous Feng Wei Brunch where you can feast on dishes like Steamed cod fillet with peppercorn and soy sauce, Sauteed chicken fillet with shallot, onion and soy sauce, and Crispy boneless duck served with Chinese pancakes, while watching live tea pouring and Chinese noodle pulling theatrics, during all five days of the holiday.

Eggs Alfresco  
Spring has arrived and it’s time to get out in the sunshine. First stop, The Pawn, where they are officially launching the 2015 season of their bi-weekly Sunday Rooftop Cookouts with a fantastic Easter BBQ including fresh salads, meat and fish grilled to order, cocktails, beer, wine and more.  Next up, Fish & Meat where you can start with a cold appetizer and salad buffet, followed by a choice of mains including Brioche and Poached Egg, Artichoke Barigoule Risotto, and Bacon and Leek Quiche, and finish with a stop at the decadent Buttermilk Pancake Station. Or stroll down Hollywood Road to Aberdeen Street Social, where they are serving Easter brunch Friday through Tuesday, including hot cross buns, Easter chocolates, candy egg giveaways, and a chance for the kiddos to run around on one of HK’s only grassy lawns. Prefer to head to the beach? Look no further than Limewood, which will be hosting a bountiful Easter Sunday brunch starting with a glass of prosecco or mimosa, followed by a buffet featuring Daily Fresh Oysters, Spicy Yellow Fin Tuna Ceviche, Caribbean BBQ Free-Range Chicken Salad and much more, plus a choice of mains and Easter treats.

Fun For All the Bunnies
When you’ve got your bunnies in tow, it’s time to hit a hotel for Easter feasting, egg hunts and chocolate treats galore!  At The Mira Easter fun will be taking centre stage in the grand ballroom with games for the kids including a talent show, balloon twisting, egg painting, and Easter egg hunts, and an unlimited brunch buffet for the whole family.  At The Peninsula you can enjoy a lavish brunch buffet at The Verandah from Friday through Tuesday, with Sunday offering a special session of artisanal egg painting. Gradini at The Pottinger Hotel will be serving an Easter version of their much-adored Italiano Brunch including hot cross buns, a luxurious antipasto platter, and a selection of pasta dishes and mains including a traditional Easter roast lamb. A desserts corner and freshly made HK-style egg waffles dipped in chocolate fondue and vanilla gelato complete the Easter decadence.  If you simply must stay the night, both the Grand Hyatt and Mandarin Oriental have launched stay-cation packages with special benefits, privileges and prices, which are exclusively available during the Easter weekend. Start the day with some of the most incredible dining experiences and children’s Easter programs in town and finish in your very own luxurious guest room, feeling miles away from home.

No matter where you celebrate, we wish you and your family a very happy Easter!
