The next thing to consider, once you’ve got some liquid in your system, is what to chow down on. Are you in the mood for something light? Something rich and filling? Or just some damn good eggs? The Thai Shrimp Salad (P295) is a light, refreshing starter with mangoes for that sweet-savory balance. If you just gotta have rice, give the Tapa Donburi (P430) a try if you like your tapa on the sweeter side; if not, the Duck Krapow (P460) is the perfect savory bowl with just the right kick of spice, served with probably the fluffiest eggs your lips will touch.
Midday risers and leisure- seekers rejoice: Hong Kong’s famous coffee and brunch spot Elephant Grounds has hit BGC.
Which leads me to the last (but certainly not the least) highlight, eggs. If you’re of the belief that a proper serving size of eggs is at least two, then you’re in good hands. The Yuzu Salmon Eggs Benny (P470) comes with two poached beauties being cuddled by generous slices of lip-smacking salmon.
The Scrambled Eggs and Bottarga Toast (P345), on the other hand, is probably the most luxurious toast-and-eggs breakfast you’ll have, with the creamiest, most luscious scrambled eggs almost overflowing on the piece of bread. It’s so velvety you might fall asleep; that’s how good it is.
After you’ve had your fill, it’s worth checking out the ice cream bar, which is pretty special on its own. They’ve got a slew of interesting and standard flavors, including EG Latte, Acai Mixed Berry, Earl Grey, Toasted Rice and more. You can get ’em by the scoop for P150, but if you’re in need of some extra comfort, get an ice cream sandwich (P165) in Red Velvet Oreo Smash, High Societea, or A$ap Rocky Road. I mean, my mouth’s already watering just listing these down for you.
