Leisure plus: spotlight on weekend brunches


Institute members recommend must-try weekend brunches in the city 

Doubleshot by Cupping Room

“Doubleshot by Cupping Room is a stylish café and bar on the first floor facing Lyndhurst Terrace and Hollywood Road in Central. Their double-smashed cheeseburger is a good start to the weekend, and the juicy Katsu-sando pork cutlet sandwich is another must-try. If you prefer a coffee or liquor-fuelled meal, you can go for their “Liquid Brunch” option – because it’s never too late for a coffee, and never too early for a drink,” says Lam.“

LG Taproom

“LG Taproom in Kennedy Town is a great place to enjoy a chill weekend and a nice brunch in the city. They have a good selection of craft beers, hand drip coffee and stone grilled steak. Customers have the option of sitting outside in its small terrace area, or inside facing some of the biggest masonry wall trees in Hong Kong,” says Ho.

“For those who love Japanese food, I suggest Kyoku. This spacious restaurant, located in Causeway Bay, serves a great selection of sushi, sashimi and teppanyaki, which I really like. Their sushi sets come with salads, steamed egg, soup and Japanese noodles such as udon or soba,” says Chun.
