New & Notable: The Optimist's Spanish Style Brunch

10 March 2016

New and notable and just in time for the weekend is The Optimist's Spanish-style brunch - a perfect way to hangout, feasting and brunching on a market buffet, sharing tapas, asador-style mains and desserts on a Sunday. Add some free-flow options of prosecco, sangria punch, Spanish wines & beer, and we have the makings of a great way to unbuckle a tough work week.

The buffet starts off with market pintxos, embutidos, cheeses, fresh salads and cold soups. You don't have to go all the way to Spain to enjoy an Iberico ham spread of cured aged jamon anymore, because this spread offers it all. For those who don’t want to leave comfort of their seats, hot sharing tapas of Huevos Rotos ‘Broken Eggs’, Grilled Octopus and Ham & Mushroom Croquettes are also available. 

The feast continues with a choice of main courses ordered hot to the table which can be eaten alone or shared with friends. Starting from HKD348 guests a selection of favourites including asador-style grilled items such as Whole Charcoal Grilled Chicken, Grilled Seasonal Vegetable Skewers, Eggplant ‘Berenjena al Horno' or the Flat Iron Steak with Chimichurri sauce (+HKD28).  Generous dishes for sharing include the Seafood rice “Arroz Caldoso” complete with mussels, clams, blue prawn and squid in a seafood stew, the Chateaubriand served with a creamy potato gratin (+HKD65 per person for two people) and the Whole Seabass ‘Espalda’ with garlic dressing (+HKD65 per person for two people).

Don't miss out on dessert, Executive Chef Alfredo Rodriquez shakes things up with a selection of his favourites every week. Guests can enjoy the likes of Warm Apple Pie served with vanilla sauce, Flan with lemon cream and an almond crunch, Strawberry Cheesecake made with strawberry coulis and cookies, Chocolate Brownie topped with hot chocolate fudge, walnuts and vanilla ice cream and Vanilla Custard ‘Natillas’, a crunchy cereal with strawberry coulis -- yum!
