7 Boozy Brunches that Won’t Break the Bank

13 January, 2016

Brunch, sleep, brunch, repeat.

We’re nearly two weeks in to those resolutions and if like us, all resolve disappeared roughly around the same time our hangover hit on 2 January, then this is the post for you. And if those December bank statements have hit you like a ton of bricks, don’t fret, we have just the thing that’ll numb (literally) the pain whilst keeping your social life afloat. It’s time to post this on the Facebook walls of those weaker-willed friends and join the revolt – here are seven boozy feasts that’ll blow your mind, not your budget this year.



We don’t know about you, but since living in Asia, sushi has become a diet staple, so imagine our joy when we found out about Taku’s unlimited Japanese affair, accompanied by lashings of unlimited draft beer and sake sangria! Their menu boasts traditional favourites including sashimi, sushi, tempura, udon and their seriously hard-to-resist yuzu sorbet! This brunch is not only light on the wallet, but light on the stomach too.

When: Every Saturday & Sunday, 12-3pm
Where: 35 Elgin Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $308 per person (excluding service charge).



This new little bistro in Kennedy Town by French Creations is the perfect place to catch up with friends on the weekend. The brunch consists of four well-sized courses, including a delicious homemade soup, a beautifully presented Prawn & Asparagus Salad, a surprisingly tasty Corned Beef Hash with Guacamole & Poached Egg and a dessert (menu changes monthly). Wash all of these delightful bites down with free-flow white, red or sparkling wine – all for just $380! The relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and high quality of the wine at this quaint French resto make for the ideal chilled out brunch spot. We’ll see you there!

When: Every Saturday – Sunday
Where: G/F, 42 Forbes Street, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong
How much: $380 for two hours of free-flow white, red and sparkling wine or $200 for just the brunch menu (excluding service charge).


Bombay Dreams

Those who’re used to a Sunday curry (and copious amounts of Cobra) in your local Mile End jaunt will appreciate this one. Bombay Dreams is a serious brunch contender, weighing in with an awesome buffet-bonanza and tipping the scales with endless samosas, fragrant curries, naan bread and the humble onion bhaji. Soak it all up with free-flowing wine, beer and soft drinks to boot. Curry club is back on, girls!

When: Every Sunday, 12pm-3pm
4/F, 77 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $198 per person, or add $128 for free- flowing sparkling, red or white wine, beer and soft drinks (excluding service charge).


Rummin’ Tings

Rummin’ Tings are spicing up the weekend brunch game with two hours of unlimited jerk platters (chicken, pork, lamb, veggies and prawns) alongside free-flowing Caribbean Pimms, beer and wine. Send that text now, you’re not moving a muscle all day – not with chilled, live music and the chance of a cheeky champagne upgrade.

When: Every Saturday and Sunday, 12pm-4pm
Where: 28 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $388 including free-flow Caribbean Pimms, beer and wine or $548 for champagne (excluding service charge).



Those looking for something a little heartier this weekend, Pirata will have you leaving with a grin on your face and food baby in tow. Indulge in free-flowing Italian aperitivos, bellinis and Prosecco whilst choosing your fill from a three-course, semi-buffet feast that’ll put those cheese dreams to rest and keep the pasta cravings at bay (for the mean time). My Mamma’s Meatball, cheese fondue and fried mozzarella sandwiches are sure to cure that Saturday-induced hangover.

When: Every Sunday, 12pm-3pm
Where: 29/30F, 239 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How much: $298 with the option of going free flow for $180 more (with no service charge!) .


Stone Nullah Tavern

Stone Nullah’s brunch is what dreams are made of. If you haven’t already taken full advantage of their incredible happy-power-hour deals, then we’re not quite sure what you’re doing with your life! But now Stone Nullah’s all-American feast is about to sweeten the deal. Beginning with a gigantic seafood platter piled high with fresh oysters, shrimp and crab and sailing smoothly into the likes of southern fried chicken, bacon cheese burgers, BBQ glazed ribs, hot dogs, mac ‘n’ cheese AND fish tacos, this is one epic brunch you’ve got to try at least once! Pace yourself though, girls, you’ll most definitely want to leave room for the kicker – their all-you-can-eat, build-your-own nacho bar. Yes please! Nachos for days. Oh, did we mention that there are free-flow margaritas?

When: Every Saturday and Sunday, 12pm-4pm
Where: 69 Stone Nullah Lane, Wanchai, Hong Kong
How much: $298 per person (with no service charge!) add free-flow Margaritas and PBRs for just $98 extra.



This brunch is a touch pricier than some of the other listings, but it’s perfect for those who aren’t looking to throw in the towel all together, but are willing to compromise on just how ‘dry’ January may be. Armani/Aqua’s New Year, New You brunch is laden with a selection of low-calorie dishes and cocktails that’ll let you have your cake and eat it, too! Plus, you won’t feel so bad about the all-day drinking sesh that’s sure to ensue, you’re practically in the negative.

When: Every Saturday, 12pm-3pm
Where: 2/F, Landmark Chater (Chater House), 8 Connaught Road, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $598 including free flow champagne and cocktails, or $448 without (excluding service charge).
