These brunches have the cure… If the morning after the night before has you feeling less than fresh, the only thing to do is brunch. And thankfully, we’re in Hong Kong, the city that brunches like no other. Read on to find our top picks for new brunches that will help cure even the worst of hangovers. There’s a little bit of everything here, from fresh and light Japanese fare to flavourful Thai, there’s even a wellness-focused yoga brunch. Happy brunching! ThinkWine They say that ‘hair of the dog’ is the best way to cure a hangover, so why not try ThinkWine’s new free-flow brunch. The sommelier-led restaurant has created Hong Kong’s first wine-focused brunch, staring a beautifully bright Cremant de Bourgogne Marcelle Lochardet Blanc de Blanc 2017. Each dish has been chosen to pair perfectly with the wine, from the selection of meats and cheeses to the mains. You have your choice of a light Mediterranean Quiche or a hearty Dragon Dog hot dog with chunks of juicy lobster, black truffle and red wine mustard. By the time you get to dessert (choose between a chocolate or lemon tart) your hangover will be a distant memory. ThinkWine brunch menu is available for HK$290 every Sunday. Reservations are recommended.
