¡Hola! Here's Why Spanish Food Makes the Perfect Weekend Brunch

Join us for some tapas and paella at our next “HYPEBAE Brunch.”

Forget about eggs Benedicts and banana pancakes — we’ve found a better brunch option. After hitting up NYC’s all-pink restaurant, Pietro Nolita, we now present another installment of “HYPEBAE Brunch,” taking you to Hong Kong’s reputed tapas bar, La Paloma.

While Spanish cuisine may not include your typical brunch foods, it certainly does the job of satiating your weekend morning craving. We’re talking about tapas, paella and churros after all — who can possibly resist?

For the adventurous ones who’re down to try something new, read our review below to learn why you should kickstart your weekend with a delicioso Spanish brunch.

THIS PLACE IS PERFECT FOR: Spanish food enthusiasts, obviously. When you love your chorizo and olives too much, naturally you’d want to have them as your first meal of the day — so why not?

WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER: The Sexy Brunch Menu, $250 HKD (approximately $32 USD). As enticing as its name sounds, this all-you-can-eat brunch set offers not only unlimited servings of seafood paella, but also Segovian-style, super-crispy suckling pig. If that’s not enough to satisfy your stomach and your Instagram feed, walk over to the open kitchen area where there’s an impressive, live paella station. You can now rest assured that your friends will be jealous.

On the tapas side, the Spanish cold cuts, tuna tartar, fried squid and beef sandwich with foie gras are equally bueno. Definitely order a mix of these dishes if you have your whole squad brunchin’ together.

OUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL: The signature La Paloma! is hands down one of the most interesting drinks on the menu. Priced at $88 HKD (approximately $11 USD), the Spanish-inspired cocktail sees tequila mixed with grapefruit juice and soda. And to top it all off, chilli and salt are added to the citrusy beverage for some kicks of flavor. There you have it, a perfect drink to wrap up your mouthwatering Sunday brunch.
