Cure Your Weekend Hangover with Lily & Bloom's Scrumptious All American Brunch
Our first-ever “HYPEBAE Brunch” is served.
Judge all you want to, but weekends are made for brunches. Why? They’re Instagram-worthy, they cure that dreaded hangover from Friday late nights, and most of all, they’re incredibly delicious. As a group of self-proclaimed brunch connoisseurs, we’ve cooked up our inaugural edition of “HYPEBAE Brunch,” a brand new series where we take you to some of our favorite brunch spots around the world. Our first stop is one of Hong Kong‘s finest, Lily & Bloom.
Located at the city’s famous bar and nightlife district Lan Kwai Fong, the double-story Lily & Bloom is known not only for its outstanding cocktail bar, but also for its old Manhattan-inspired restaurant on the lower level. Led by Executive Chef Chris Grare, who hails from New Jersey, the kitchen serves up mouth-watering American diner classics that you won’t be able to find anywhere else in town. Treat your taste buds by reading our full review below.
THIS PLACE IS PERFECT FOR: Spending a lazy Sunday afternoon with a big group of friends, especially if you all love diner-style breakfasts.
WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER: The All American Brunch, $495 HKD (approximately $63 USD). With a huge buffet area featuring everything from a salad bar and a made-to-order omelette station, to a selection of seafood as well as meats and cheeses, you’ll know that this is definitely not your average brunch menu. Pace yourself because the brunch experience doesn’t end here — it continues with five courses of Blackboard Specials including avocado toast, corned beef hash and eggs, blueberry pancakes, french toast and finally, crispy fried chicken. The best part? All dishes come in unlimited portions. Yes, you read that right. The price is also inclusive of a free flow of bellini, bloody mary or other drinks of your choice.
OUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL: Summer Cup, $90 HKD (approximately $12 USD), because nothing screams refreshing more than some Pimm’s with fresh lemon and mint.
