Brunch: Tott's and Roof Terrace at The Excelsior

Brunching in Hong Kong is a big deal. Pretty much any restaurant or hotel worth their salt in HK will undoubtedly offer some kind of weekend all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunch menu. It's the ultimate Sunday indulgence. Somehow, before now, I'd only been to one weekend brunch before, at Top Deck in Aberdeen. Which I very much enjoyed and would do again, however my brunch experience at Tott's last weekend really blew that one out of the water.

There was literally everything you could possibly desire to eat on a Sunday. Serving delicacies such as foie gras, oysters and Yorkshire pudding (one for the brits). They seemed to have a station for everything, there's a cheese station, an eggs benedict station, a roast dinner station, an oyster station, a Bloody Mary station, ALL the desserts at their dessert station, literally. I'm not the biggest dessert person as a rule, don't get me wrong, I love a cheesecake and an ice cream, but I'm usually by far a more savoury girl. The dessert station at Tott's was incredible though. (As you can see from my plate below). Basically, in terms of food, they have everything.

On top of all the excitement over food, they serve free-flow Veuve Clicquot for the duration, which they were very attentive in keeping topped up the whole time. Oh, and not to mention the expansive view of Kowloon in the background.

Apparently the Excelsior hotel is soon to be turned into a residential building, so I cannot recommend enough to go soon before it closes.

It's worth making a trip to the roof terrace to admire the view over Hong Kong Island while you're there, this view is particularly magical at night. The roof terrace has a fantastic buy-one-get-one-free happy hour from 5-8pm.

If the food was too much of a distraction and you feel you didn't get your fill of champagne, why not head to the Armani bar in Central for their post brunch party like we did. $250 for free flow prosecco, belinis, bloody mary's etc from 4-7. It was a birthday celebration after all..

*if you pay with a HSBC card you get 20% off the brunch at Tott's bringing the grand total to $620 per person.
