If you’re looking for a top quality, reasonably-priced brunch set (around HK$270 for 4 courses) in a naturally-lit and spacious setting, then this is it.
Last Sunday my friends and I found ourselves running out of options for brunch places in Tsim Sha Tsui. Almost every place we called was fully booked and we were near-starving. We decided to take a chance on an internet search result that seemed promising: Green at the lobby of Hotel Icon.
Not many people know about Green, so we were able to book a table for six last minute, and were rewarded with a delectable meal!
Unfortunately, I was ravenous at this point and neglected to take photos of the menu or of the main dishes, but I promise next time I won’t be so careless.
I think the winning dish was the lobster appetizer (you can choose to have it grilled or cooked in other ways), followed by my main course of pan-seared salmon. My friends had the rib-eye steak, but after trying theirs, I was happy with my own plate (and that says a lot if you consider my notorious food envy. I nearly cried with regret when everyone was served lobster and I got a chicken Caesar’s salad for the first course…)
A compelling reason to pay Green a visit as well – the best cake I’ve tasted in Hong Kong. And I take my cakes seriously. The only other cake I like in Hong Kong is Ms. B’s ‘Better Than Sex.’
Brunch Served until 3pm. Green, Lobby, Hotel Icon, 17 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon, Hong Kong, +852 3400 1300, http://www.hotel-icon.com
