(Hong Kong, 31 May 2018) FRANCIS, one of Hong Kong’s hottest new neighbourhood hangouts, has just enhanced its popular Middle Eastern-inspired offering with a brand new Weekend Brunch.
The lively new eatery on St. Francis Street in Wanchai has become one of the most popular wining and dining spots in town since opening in January, thanks to a winning combination of delicious Tel Aviv street food, quality affordable wines, and a friendly casual-chic vibe.
The new brunch menu is available on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays from 12 to 3pm for just $280 per person and includes a selection of meze for the table and your choice of mains.
The meze to share include hummus, spinach and feta cigars, signature halloumi with pomegranate and wild oregano, and light fresh salad of avocado, tomato, labneh and za’atar spice mix.
Next, guests choose from a handful of signature mains, including spicy shakshuka with eggs, tomato and harissa, crispy chicken schnitzel, classic kafta with spring lamb, beef, tahini and onion, and a juicy hanger steak with lentils, smoked eggplant and coriander for meat lovers.
The meal ends on a sweet note with a refreshing vanilla poached peach, buttermilk cream and sumac.
Ideal to kick start the day are the accompanying aperitif options such as Pick Me Up ($90) with harissa infused vodka and tomato juice, or Spritz Me Up ($90) with cocchi vermouth, prosecco and orange. The Cleanser ($50) is ideal for those in need of a thirst quenching cleansing ale.
FRANCIS also proudly boasts a selection of unique “orange wines”, which are hard to find elsewhere in town. Orange wines are white wines made using the same techniques as red wines – the grape skins are left on, which produces tannins and makes the wines drier and spicier than most.
Known for their complexity and texture, the orange wines perfectly complement the bold flavours, spices and extensive use of vibrant herbs in Middle Eastern cuisine.
Needless to say, the rest of the excellent and well curated wine list at FRANCIS is also still available as usual.
