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

Brunch @ The Pantry, Hong Kong

Last month, after a movie at the cinema in the mall downstairs, we noticed that there was a new restaurant opposite the cinema. The menu at The Pantry seemed suitable for brunch, so we paid a visit for a brunch date (with baby). Everything was new, and I liked the clean design and bright interior. Once we were inside the restaurant, we saw how spacious and big it actually was. The menu contained innovative dishes like Waffle Benedicts and Buttermilk Chicken Waffle, which piqued our interest. There were plenty of staff so there was no shortage of attention. We've been back three or four times since (with all our three kids in tow), and we don't have any complains about the service. The food was good, service was great, and all our visits to The Pantry have been quite pleasant. It's worth visiting just for the poached eggs on a crispy waffle.

The entry way to The Pantry from the mall:

View from our table by the window:

Cappuccino (HK$45) is decent here. Hubby ordered the Peachy Coconut Smoothie (HK$58) without reading the description too closely, and was disappointed in how green it looked and tasted. The spinach flavour overwhelmed the peach and coconut flavours that he was after:

Hubby always order The All Day (HK$140) with ricotta pancake, scrambled egg, sausage, bacon, tomato and sauteed mushrooms. The pancake is so fluffy:

I always order the Waffle Benedict (HK$138) which comes with poached eggs, spinach, avocado and smoked bacon:
