Hongkongers have always taken their brunches seriously, and a lot of our favourite brunch spots have risen to the challenge and upped the ante with bigger, better, and boozier deals. From economical set menus to no-holds-barred buffets, here are some of our favourite brunches in Hong Kong that come with free-flow drinks packages.
LPM’s free-flow rosé champagne brunch, La Vie en Rosé, celebrates spring with two hours of free-flowing cocktails—the refreshing Saison Spritz is a perfect start to a lazy morning—mocktails, rosé, and champagne by the glass, with premium options available by the bottle.
We think the star of this brunch has to be the appetisers. With as many as 14 options available for unlimited orders, you can load up on as many dishes as you want. We particularly enjoyed the burrata tartine, warm heirloom tomato tart, and scrambled eggs. Diners also get a choice of a main with a side—whilst the popular option is the squid ink risotto, we found the petit farcis with veal stuffed vegetables a light and delicious choice, and the potato gratin a must-have with your mains. For dessert, the French toast with spice ice cream is a perfectly balanced treat, whilst the vanilla créme brûlée is best for sharing.

Freshen up on the weekends with Veda’s latest Cha Cha Cha brunch, available every weekend and public holiday from 12 pm to 6 pm with an option to add two hours of free-flow champagne to your experience at an additional price.
Relax and unwind with a selection of Indian street snacks—including the signature Silk Route momos and popular samosa chaat loaded with sweet potatoes and yogurt—before moving onto mains such as the veggie-friendly version of the famed Chicken 65—spiced gobi 65, made with crispy cauliflower coated in masala spices, and the onion bhaji okonomiyaki, a perfect blend between the street food of India and Japan. Finally, finish off on a sweet note with the G’Jam cake, a reference to the traditional gulab jamun, and Basque cheesecake.

The contemporary Cantonese restaurant is bringing back the famed Good Fortune Club—a Sunday brunch experience that allows diners to enjoy unlimited dim sum from the restaurant’s delicious selection. Complete with a bottle of champagne per guest, dig into new additions to the menu such as crab, prawn, and beetroot dumplings, pork siu mai with scallop and mushrooms, and prawn toast okonomiyaki.
Got room for more? Try out Ho Lee Fook’s classic dishes such as mushroom and cordyceps fried rice wrapped in lotus leaf, prawn roe stirred fried noodles with crispy scallop, and the signature Kurobuta char siu. The Good Fortune Club menu is only available on the first Sunday of each month, so don’t forget to book your table in advance.

Finding it difficult to pick between tapas, pasta, and charcuterie? You don’t have to at Quiero Más—as part of its weekend brunch, the Mediterranean restaurant is offering a wide-ranging menu that covers dishes from the French Riviera to the Sicilian coast and the Iberian Peninsula.
Diners get a selection of tapas to share—including a platter of Spanish cold cuts and Manchego cheeses, truffle cheese bikini sandwiches, and eggs with chorizo and crispy potato—as well as two main courses and a dessert. For mains, diners can pick from delectable dishes like lobster Thermidor in mushroom Parmesan cream, roasted suckling pig with green vegetables, seafood paella, and crab linguini. Don’t miss the finale—a traditional Basque burnt cheesecake, a choice of gelato, and churros with chocolate sauce.
For free-flow drinks, diners have the choice between a non-alcoholic free-flow package of soft drinks, mocktails, and juices; free-flow sangria, cava, house wines, and beer; or free-flow sangria, cava, house wines, beer, and house spirits. Two signature cocktails are also available, but they are not included in the free-flow packages and come at an additional cost.
Quiero Más, 20/F, M88, 2–8 Wellington Street, Central | (+852) 2383 0268
Somewhat unusually, mains aren’t included at this Sai Ying Pun trattoria—though it starts to make sense when you realise you can load up on the recently launched pizzeta and as much salad, cheese, cold cuts, and wine as you like before tucking into a dessert of your choice. If you do want to supplement your buffet spread with a main, however, larger dishes are available at additional prices—we like the black truffle chitarrino with walnut “breadcrumbs” and the lamb chop with roasted potatoes. This signature brunch includes free-flowing spritzes at no extra cost, so you can drink to your heart’s content.
LucAle, 100 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun | (+852) 3611 1842
Try out a selection of fusion items at popular sando bar Katsumoto’s weekend Mexican NInja brunch. You’ll get three starters to share with the table—shishito peppers, chicken or cauliflower karaage, and jalapeño mixed leaf salad paired with miso soup—while each diner will get a yakitori, sushi roll, and sando of their choosing. We recommend the avocado tempura roll for its perfect balance between creaminess and crunch, whilst the Wagyu sando is a delight for sando aficionados but does come at an additional cost.
All of Katsumoto’s brunch items are best enjoyed with some free-flowing drinks and the two-hour package includes sake, prosecco, highballs, reds and whites.

For those who don’t suffer from the meat sweats—or simply embrace them—there is no brunch so well-suited to carnivorous appetites as the one at Braza Churrascaria. Based on the Brazilian churrascarias—where waiters continuously come to the table and carve barbecued meat from skewers directly onto your plate—it is a meat lover’s dream.
Diners can enjoy a Brazilian-style buffet loaded with organic salads, cold cuts, cheeses, and hot signature dishes, before enjoying barbecued beef, lamb, pork, and chicken. To accommodate various tastes, there are three different two-hour free-flow packages available: a virgin free-flow with soft drinks and signature mocktails, and two alcoholic packages that offer various flavours of caipirinhas alongside beer and wine.
Braza Churrascaria, 3/F, Grand Progress Building, 15–16 Lan Kwai Fong, Central | (+852) 2890 9268
Occupying the stunning space that formerly housed John Anthony, Duckee is as much of a feast for the eyes as it is for the stomach—especially during their all-you-can-eat weekend brunches. For two glorious hours, you will get unlimited servings of dim sum, appetisers, and signatures; an additional cost will secure free-flowing wine, Prosecco, house spirits, and cocktails. All the usual dim sum suspects are included in the deal, including xiaolongbao, barbecued char siu bao, har gow, and turnip cake, while diners can also order more substantial dishes like soups, mains, and even Peking duck.

Transport yourself to India with Chaiwala’s weekend brunch, where you can whet your appetite with street food snacks and tandoor towers for sharing before selecting one dish each from the biryani and curry categories. We’re fans of the comforting Old Delhi butter chicken and fragrant mutton biryani. If you’ve got space for more, try out their potato- and cheese-stuffed vegetarian dosa at an additional cost. Why stop there? Opt in for additional free-flow lassis, unlimited champagne, wine, Prosecco, beer, and gin and tonics.
During weekdays, you can also take advantage of Chaiwala’s ongoing “dunch” promotion, where you can get 90 minutes of complimentary free-flow drinks with any lunch set by writing “drinks on us” in the remarks section while making your reservation.

Brunch the Burmese way with Club Rangoon’s Lite Pwel brunch offering. Nibble on street food bites like the signature potato samusa and take your pick from the authentic mains such as braised aubergine curry and Burmese-style biryani. Club Rangoon’s selection of desserts—thar gu, Burmese tea ice cream, and fresh fruits—are perfect paired with a drink, and there are three free-flow packages to choose from: non-alcoholic drinks like iced tea, salted lemonade, soft drinks, and a mocktail; Prosecco, house wines, and beer; and Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV, house wines, beers, mojitos, and cocktails.
Club Rangoon, 33 Aberdeen Street, Central | (+852) 2503 3077
Looking for something different for your weekend lazy mornings? Bookmark Tokyolima’s Matsuri brunch, and start your morning with a selection of Peruvian-Japanese plates like chicken karaage and zingy sea bass and tempura calamari ceviche are brought to your table for family-style sharing. Dig into a main of your choice—trust us, the chicken katsu with its spicy, umami kimchi gravy is well worth trying—and cap things off with a treat from the dessert basket to end things on a sweet note.
The standard free-flow package includes house reds and whites, beer, sake, and a selection of soft drinks whilst the champagne package adds G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Champagne to the base selection. A similar menu is available for “dunch” from 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm.
