Wild Grass, Sunday brunch, Central Hong Kong
I have heard wonderful things about Wild Grass which is tucked away on Arbuthnot Road. Wild Grass is ‘all about natural, sustainable ingredients, lovingly prepared by traditional slow cooking methods’. I wanted to try somewhere different for brunch, I love the open space – not a lot of restaurant in Hong Kong has this much space and the menu sounded wonderful.
For Sunday brunch, Wild Grass offers diners different types of starters and a buffet featuring their famous roasts including organic roast chicken, organic beef rump, New Zealand lamb leg, crispy pork rib and some vegetables. Each of the dish were perfectly prepared and it was hard not to try every single one.
We started with some bread.
For starters, diners have 6 options – most of us opt for the organic poached egg benedict with cured bacon. Perfectly poached egg, on a top of brioche with bacon. It was a good way to start brunch!
H had the chilled tomato gazpacho with soft boiled quail egg and cherry tomatoes. This was surprisingly nice – I am not usually a fan of cold soup but on a hot day I can probably have this.
I couldn’t help but ask for a little bit of everything of their roast. The organic roast chicken was incredibly tender and Dragon’s favourite. The organic beef rump was my favourite – yes I preferred it to the pork. The beef was succulent and cooked to perfection. The pork was also very good. I think we all had more than one serving!
Dessert was a choice of sweets or savoury. Savoury being cheese – blue, bree and one hard cheese which I can’t for the life of me remember! which was served with biscuits and bread and served with fruit.
The sweets being tiramisu, apple crumble and pavolva. I really liked the apple crumble – but I am a sucker for anything crumble. ‘The Mother’ really enjoyed the tiramisu.
Sunday brunch cost HKD298 per person, service was polite and friendly. They had music also, so Dragon got to dance a little bit. I really enjoyed the Sunday brunch here – good for long family brunches and the food is pretty decent.
