From the bar that brought us more Caribbean kicks than you can shake a rum tumbler at comes the new weekend Island Brunch offering that really packs a punch. Recognising Hong Kong’s love for staple brunch items like eggs Benedict, avocado toast, and a fluffy omelette, the Rummin’ Tings team have answered our hangover prayers with a delicious range of six traditional dishes on offer with a cheeky Caribbean twist. We popped over to try them out.
With its super chilled atmosphere, cool, Carribbean inspired interior, and funky beats, Rummin’ Tings is the ideal location for a casual catch up with friends in an easy to get to location. The vibe is fun, loud, and colourful, meaning there’s never a dull moment – that goes for the food too!
Here’s the deal – all brunch items are priced individually, so you can pick and choose as you please, and (if you didn’t drink too much the night before) you can add free-flow Champagne for $468 or free-flow Carribbean Pimms for $288. Both drink packages include unlimited beer and wine too, but we say go for the Pimms – it’s tropical paradise in a glass!

As for the food, we couldn’t get enough of the new goodies on the menu. The Jerk Eggs Benedict ($100), complete with Trini spices and delicious, crispy bacon (just like mamma makes it) is an absolute delight and the best way to start any brunch time feast. The generous serving of Avocado Toast ($80) is an absolute must try, and comes with oodles of fresh chunky avocado, tomato, onion and chives, all piled up on lovely sourdough toast. The Scrambled Eggs and Jerk Chicken ($110) is also a delight to the taste buds, however the Grilled Half Jerk Chicken ($170) is so freakin’ delicious that you’ll want to gobble the whole thing up and hibernate for the rest of the weekend. This chuck really packs a punch in terms of spice, so if you want to give your taste buds a kick up the butt, this is the way to go!
Whatever you do, though, make sure you leave room for the Pancakes ($110) – oh the pancakes. Served with rich (and pretty strong) Rum & Raisin or Coconut Ice Cream (we say order both), and covered in Maple Syrup, these little treasures are ideal for sharing with fellow pancake lovers and taste so good you’ll wish you lived nearer just so you could eat them every morning!
If you’re on the lookout for a quick and easy brunch to soak up the alcohol from the night before, or simply to catch up with friends in a central location, then Rummin’ is a winner. Every dish is delicious and reasonably priced and the Pimms, well, let’s just say go easy on the Pimms. It’s lovely that the team have listened to the demands of our rumbling stomachs and come up with yet another great offering in their funky little bar. This is one brunch definitely worth swinging by for.
