The Tai Pan Sunday Brunch
Every Sunday, The Tai Pan at The Murray, Hong Kong creates a feast for the eyes, senses and taste buds, and we are huge fans. We recommend getting there early to kick things off with some free-flow Ruinart or a cocktail from the drinks trolley before starting off your food journey on the buffet tables that include loads of vegetarian options alongside charcuterie, cheese and sashimi. Or perhaps you’d like to indulge in Peking Duck or other delights from the carvery?
Next up are the oysters that are delivered to your table, followed by a signature egg dish to tick off those egg cravings. Choose your main from the likes of beef rib, seasonal fish or risotto, but be sure to leave room for the epic dessert selection. The handmade delights look (almost) too good to eat, and we still can’t decide if we liked the strawberry and dark chocolate treats or the lemon and coconut delights the best.
This is also a great brunch for the littlies with an assortment of small sized food treats to keep them happy and different activities to keep them occupied each week, so you can enjoy an extra glass of bubbles. The Tai Pan Sunday Brunch is $598 or $298 for kids aged 5-11.
