The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Lunch @ Brunch Club, Hong Kong

I love the idea of enjoying a leisurely brunch on a lazy weekend morning. The problem is that I'm usually awake by 6:30am (if not earlier, thanks to the little boy), and I am incapable of skipping breakfast, so technically it's no longer brunch for me by the time we go out - on the odd occasion - for brunch. Well, if we couldn't have a proper brunch, then we could still have a lovely lunch at Brunch Club, and that was what we did on Saturday after the boy's toddler gym class. It's such a cozy and comfortable setting that it was hard not to sit back, relax and enjoy the food

Both daddy and son pondering what to eat. Apparently you can also get alcohol here (according to the blackboard behind):

Brunch Club is a super-casual all-day eatery in Hong Kong's chic Soho. This is a simple restaurant with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, made quite comfortable with sofas, magazines and an outdoor terrace. It opens from 8am to 11pm everyday, running on a no-reservations first-come-first-served basis; I've read that there can be quite a wait for a table during peak meal times. We arrived at 12pm on the dot, and the few tables in the small diner were already occupied, but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. The menu features typical western breakfast items ranging from muesli, fruit bowl and yogurt to a full breakfast with eggs, bacon and the works. They have a different menu for lunch and dinner, but we were there for the brunch menu which featured plenty of eggs. I love how there are so many different ways on how to have the eggs done (sunny-side up, over easy, fully-fried, scrambled, omelette, poached or hard-boiled).

Two Eggs (over easy) & Two Toppings (spinach and Swiss gruyere) on Toast (HK$65), for the boy who loves "bread and egg", especially with the bread dipped in soft yolk:

Mix Grill (HK$92) - two eggs, walnut raisin loaf, bacon, chicken breast, gammon ham, pork sausage, fried onions, grilled tomato and baked beans. The stuff on that plate disappeared very quickly! Hubby enjoyed it very much, although it's a little heavy and greasy for me:

Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon (HK$85) and spinach (+HK$10), hollandaise on the side:

The eggs were poached just right, with yummy runny yolk:

Hubby couldn't resist ending the meal on a sweet note, and ordered French Toast with Choco Banana topping (HK$65). Yummo!

Brunch Club also does a great cappuccino with plenty of foam:

Yummy food, and a great place to just hang out and relax.

  1. This brekky looks fantastic, I love these kinda restaurants that serve all day casual food like this!

  2. Yeah, me too! HK needs more places like this. There are plenty of HK-style cafes and daipaidongs serving cheap Chinese and Asian breakfast (congee being my favourite), but western breakfasts are usually found at expensive hotels and are not served all-day.

  3. YUM! I love brunch! Especially eggs benedict with smoked salmon :)

  4. yum! eggs benedict are my favs!
