The dinner ban and other social distancing restrictions are currently in force until February 3, which means the F&B scene is pivoting fully to daytime dining and drinking. It's hardly surprising, therefore, that brunch is the word on everyone's lips, with many restaurants spoiling their guests with bottomless dishes and booze—if you're lucky enough to spend a weekday indulging yourself, that is. Read on for where to find the best brunches during these strange times, among other news.
Newly-opened French Japanese steakhouse Bifteck is adding four more dry-aged dishes to its menu ahead of Valentine's Day. First up is the grilled 60-day dry-aged WBI US grain-fed Angus OP rib with bone marrow sauce (HK$598), which uses the standing rib roast technique that many believe makes for the finest, juiciest form of roast beef out there. Next, the 35-day dry-aged Belgium beef tartare with capsucum mayo and seaweed chips (HK$268) utilises the lean, tender and dense structure of Belgian beef to great effect. The 15-day dry-aged Australian wagyu beef tongue steak with roasted roots, capers and shallot salsa sauce (HK$288) is another unmissable option, while the 10-day dry-aged French Mieral pigeon demonstrates chef Ken Kwok's skill by pairing the roasted body of the pigeon with its legs prepared tempura-style.
