We wanted to experience Sunday brunch in Hong Kong. Whilst many of the 5* hotels offer a Western style brunch buffet, we decided to dine at Duddell’s for their fresh and unlimited Asian cuisine with free flow Veuve Clicquot. What a fabulous gastronomy delight!
Duddell’s is situated in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district, their restaurant on level 3 has been awarded not one, but two Michelin stars. The Weekend Salon Brunch is served in the salon on level 4, we were offered a table for two out on the garden terrace.
We started with some dim sum, the portions came with two pieces, so we could each try the other’s choices. Mike ordered the Barbecued Pork Puff, Sesame and Chicken Spring Roll, Garlic. I ordered the Shrimp Dumpling, Morel Mushroom and Chicken Bun, Ginger. They were all delicious and a fabulous selection of tastes and textures.
From the snack section of the menu I was very tempted to try the Jelly Fish with Sesame but wimped out and selected the Crispy Smoked Duck Breast instead.
From the mains section of the menu, we ordered the Sweet and Sour Pork, Pineapple which was so good, we asked for a second portion, plus the Sautéed Shrimp, Chili Sauce.
From the rice and noodles section, Mike ordered the Steamed Fried Rice, Roasted Duck, Lotus Leaf and I requested the Soup Noodles, Shrimp Wonton.
We were filling up fast and we couldn’t falter the waiting staff who regularly passed to top up our champagne, it definitely is a free flow Vueve Clicquot drink experience without any skimping.
We couldn’t decide on which two of the four desserts to try, so greedily ordered three, to finish our brunch – including almond cream egg white, lotus seed paste puff salted egg yolk and osmanthus jelly in coconut cream.
The brunch menu has three price options and is served on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays:
480 HK$ per person with juices, soft drinks and water
680 HK$ per person with free-flow Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label, cocktails, red and white wine, plus soft beverages
2,380 HK$ per person with unlimited Krug Grande Cuvee
We’d highly recommend the Veuve Clicquot option, Brunch at Duddell’s is an excellent way to spend Sundays in Hong Kong in our opinion.
