Following the unparalleled launch of avant garde Cantonese nighttime concept, KONG, legendary sandwich eatery, Bread & Beast, is now channeling their innovative takes on Hong Kong flavors into Beast Brunch, a new weekend menu comprised of Savory Sandwiches, Jammy Toasts, and low-carb/healthy Cauliflower Rice Bowls. In addition to indulgent offerings, the homegrown restaurant best known for re-interpreting traditional Cantonese flavors, collaborated with an accredited Exercise Scientist, and local Kefir studio kitchen to offer nutritious options that perfectly celebrate New Year diet resolutions. The brunch, available Saturdays (10am-3pm) and Sundays (10am-4.30pm) is also pet-friendly, making it an easy way to spend a weekend amongst friends and loved ones.
In recognition of New Year’s diets and resolutions, Bread & Beast teamed up with Calibrate by Stephanie, an accredited Exercise Physiologist and Scientist with a degree from the University of New South Wales (Sydney), to offer three dishes served without a side of guilt. Dishes designed by Calibrateinclude: Good Morning Sunshine!(HK$138) features sweet potato, poached eggs, smashed avocado and is served with coconut yoghurt and kumquat watercress; Buddha Bowl(HK$138) slices of grilled tofu, roasted cauliflower rice, poached egg, smashed avocado, pickled ginger and carrots, ginger preserved lemon, chipotle yoghurt, and baby basil; and YDWK (You Don’t Wanna Know) (HK$68) a vegan brownie with mint milk. Additionally, the restaurant worked with Al’s Kefir, a locally made brand of kefir to design a series of health-benefiting beverages: Lychee Kefir Soda, Ginger Kefir Soda, and Kefir Tea Soda(all priced at HK$48). Relatively new to Hong Kong, and similar to the more familiar kombucha, kefir offers a wide set of health benefits including 5 times more probiotics than yogurt, vitamins, minerals, in addition to a sugar burning effect which contributes to healthy gut flora and improved immune functioning.
For those looking to indulge a bit more, but still counting carbs, the brunch also features two additional Cauliflower Rice bowls: Char Siu Cauliflower Rice Bowl (HK$148) Char Siu pork neck, cauliflower rice, poached egg, smashed avocado, pickled ginger and gailan, chipotle yoghurt, and zest; and Beetroot Bowl (HK$138) Pat Chun Aged Vinegar Beetroot Pickled, cauliflower rice, baby spinach, chickpeas, pickled carrots, shaved radish, alfalfa sprouts, chipotle yoghurt, and baby basil.
For full indulgence, the menu also boasts decadent favorites such as: Chuhao Brisket Croissant(HK$158) pulled chuhao brisket, scrambled egg, tomato coriander jam, lotus crisps and kumquat cabbage served on a buttery croissant with a side of tomato salt fries; Kentucky San Burger (HK$148) crispy fried chicken, sunny side up egg, curried Kewpie mayo, pickled ginger, nori served on a Brioche bun with a side of kumquat cabbage and tomato salt fries; and Bourbon Caramel Banana Ricotta French Toast (HK$118) ripe banana, bourbon caramel, ricotta.
Complimenting the guilt-free options at Bread & Beast’s new brunch, the weekend revelry is also completely pet-friendly, eliminating the need to choose between brunch with friends and quality time with Man’s Best Friend.
