The Drunken Pot
Here at Honeycombers, we’re big fans of hot pot and not many do it better than the folks at Drunken Pot. We love the communal spirit of shoving everything into a melting pot, dropping a few sake bombs and sharing with friends.
Now you’re able to enjoy this occasion with your friends at a fraction of the price ($98 without extras), it’s a great way of getting your weekend off to a tasty start! Fill your glasses with their free flow option of sake, sangria, wine and cava for an additional $98 or try and master the power of self-control with the self-service bloody mary.

If you believe that sharing is caring then we’ve got the brunch spot for you. Picada is launching their brunch selection which offers the whole family a memorable experience, with that they’ve earned their place on our list of new brunches in Hong Kong. Although, we definitely recommend grabbing the seat closest to the Peruvian Ceviche (it’s incredible). The five-course brunch extravaganza is priced at $298 per person and $98 for the kids menu.
Diners can choose from an array of different dishes from light salads to signature mains. We’ve had the pleasure of dining here and the quality of food is up there with the best. Picada have even rolled out kids classics to keep the little monsters happy, while you can take advantage of the 3-hour free flow boozy brunch that includes our favourite mimosas, as well as: margaritas, mojitos, choice of wines, mixers and beers – all for $198 per person. Day drinking just got a whole lot more lethal.

The legendary restaurant is celebrating its 20th anniversary, so instead of gifting china, why not book yourself in for a nine, yes that’s right, NINE-course brunch full of favourites from the past twenty years. Think of it as a greatest hits album, except that you’re able to eat your favourite songs.
In such a competitive environment, Spanish cuisine has been nobly represented by Ole’s consistent brilliance and this foodie journey can be experienced for a modest price of just $380 plus drinks. From the padron peppers to the jamon ham and the wonderful desserts, we love that you can order your own main (or share paella) and highly recommend the vegetarian eggplant dish and the wonderful cod. Full review coming soon, so keep an eye out.

In recent years, new brunches in Hong Kong have tried to raise their game and this summer is no exception. JinJuu introduces an authentic Korean experience as they re-interpret a long preserved tradition called “banchan”, that features BBQ meat packed full of flavour – barbecues are for summer, so why not try it Korean style. Set in the heart of LKF at California Tower and led by talented chef Judy Joo, it’s brunch that sizzles with quality.
Ranking in the middle of the brunch scale at $338, diners looking for the full experience should book ahead and also think about the two-hour Korean free flow option for $188 per person. Complete the Korean experience with wines, chardonnay, HITE (Korean lager), spiced kimchi mary or Korean tea.

Margarita mad? We are just a tad, hence why we’re super excited to hear about Agave’s new brunch, ingeniously named “drunch”. Admittedly we were almost won over entirely with the name, however the promise of Mexican style dishes, margaritas and more has got us a bit giddy. While you’re knocking back your drinks, enjoy the likes of Huevos Rancheros Con Conchinita Pibil, fried corn tortillas, topped with roast pork, fried eggs with raja sauce and tomato salsa; and Molletes, that come with bread rolls topped with refried beans, Oaxaca cheese, tomato salsa, guacamole and your choice of meat.
For a mere $198 you can reject the heat and paddle in your own personal margarita pool with house margaritas or specialty versions – margarita pepino, margarita morada and verde mary. It’s margarita-mania over at Agave Central!
