Mercato Hong Kong: The Ultimate Weekend Brunch


Recently, I've had quite a few friends and colleagues coming to me for recs on where to eat out in Hong Kong - namely for brunch. And I tell them Mercato by Jean-Georges every time.

My all-time favourite restaurant for simple and consistently delicious Italian fare made with market-fresh produce, Mercato by Jean-Georges is a great choice not just for brunch but for the a la carte specials at dinner. But I'll focus on the brunch for this post. I went back one weekend to check out the new menu by chef Tony Burd, this time out on the terrace. We picked out a few new dishes to try like the Sausage Pizza & Crispy Chicken Sandwich, but also had to go for the Omelette with Fontina Cheese, chives, spinach and fresh cherry tomato salad. With a side of crispy Applewood smoked bacon, of course.

Also, it's not pictured below, but do not forget to order the Cinnamon Sticky Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting and Buttermilk Pancakes - which are exclusive to the brunch menu and available only on weekends! Happy brunching xx
