This super trendy hangout is known for its cool cocktails and stellar dishes, so when we caught wind of its newly launched brunch, we couldn’t resist booking in with the girls and making the most of much-loved Indonesian flavours. A crisp glass of Veuve Clicquot in one hand (and a Bloody Mary in the other) we wasted no time in ordering one of every starter on the menu. If you’re with a larger group, I would definitely recommend sampling everything on offer – don’t be fooled, these dishes are both big in size and punch. Spoilt for choice, the Gado Gado is a must-try, an assortment of garden veg tossed in white cashew and peanut dressing (served with free-range egg, tempeh, garlic crackers and Batagor). And even those who aren’t keen on fish won’t be able to resist the Javanese Fried Prawns and Mackerel Dumplings.

Brunch at Kaum, Potato Head Hong Kong

No stranger to Indo-cuisine, I was quick to order mains, bowls full of Nasi Goreng Udang – fried rice with fresh prawns, Bangka shrimp paste, basil and red chili paste, – to share, and was immediately transported back to my Malaysian roots. The perfect antidote to one-too-many champers!

Come hungry and ready to eat throughout the entire three-hour brunch, because the menu gets better and better, with the Babi Guling – roasted, boneless baby pig marinated in Balinese spice – one to make room for.

And of course, we can’t forget dessert! Loosen a notch on your belt, because the decadent Lapis Surabaya melts in your mouth. The layered butter cake with pineapple preserve, lemon curd and burned pineapple and mango ice cream is a sweet note to a savoury binge.

 

Three hours here is not enough – trust me! Generous with the drinks, and food you can’t help but continue to nibble. Stay on (if you can hack the pace!) and enjoy its post-brunch package! At an additional $195 to your brunch bill, keep the party going with house wine, beers, Bloody Marys and sangria or $280 for the addition of Veuve Clicquot. After all, we live in a city that never sleeps, right girls?
