[Hong Kong] Sunday Perrier-Jouet Champagne & Oyster Brunch at Sheraton
Rating: ❤❤❤❤1/2 (4.5/5)
The Sunday brunch at Oyster & Wine Bar in Sheraton Hotel just got hotter as the first and only restaurant in Hong Kong to serve free-flow Perrier-Jouet Blanc de Blancs champagne (newly released)! I've long heard about the popular brunch at the Sheraton due to its unlimited supply of high-quality oysters from US and France, and after trying it this past weekend I can honestly say that it was worth the hype! With 5 types to choose from, the range of oysters offered were distinctive and most importantly, freshly shucked upon order. Aside from seafood buffet, the brunch also includes hot starters such as eggs Benedict along with a choice of main plus souffle for dessert!
Prices start from:
- HK$998 per person for free-flow of Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut, white & red wine
- HK$1,298 per person for free-flow of Perrier-Jouet Blason Rose and all of the above
- HK$1,498 per person for free-flow of Perrier-Jouet Blanc de Blancs and all of the above
With such a beautiful view of the Victoria Harbour, the Sunday brunch at Sheraton is definitely not to be missed!
We got to try all three champagnes side by side to taste the difference and all went very well with the oysters. What's interesting is that the Grand Brut served in regular-sized and magnum-sized bottles actually taste different from one another with the magnum being the preferred choice as the flavor was more complex and better aging potential.
The buffet counter had an array of appetizers like salad bar, sashimi, Alaskan king crab legs, prawns and of course seasonal oysters from around the world.
Head chef Oscar Chow was on hand to explain to us the 5 different types of oysters available on that day:
- Totten Inlet Oyster from Washington, US
- Pacific Rock Oyster from US
- Fine de Bretagne Oyster from Brittany, France
- Ronce Oyster from France
- Harty Oyster from Ireland
Each had its own distinct characteristic with the US ones being more sweet and creamy while the oysters from France were more mineral and salty in flavor.
Other highlights of the buffet stations include the USDA prime ribs, lobster bisque and the impressive beetroot-cured smoked salmon.
Once we were done with the buffet, we ordered starters from the menu which are made upon order with no limit - you can order as many as you want! J tried the Scramble Egg with cheese and ham while I got the Egg Perigourdine with black truffles which were both delicious.
The high quality of the food continued with our mains - Lobster Mornay and US Beef Tenderloin with Rougie Foie Gras. Other choices include Roast Iberico Pork Fillet and Mediterranean Sea Bream.
A variety of cheese and Port wine were available as well as a massive collection of fruits and desserts. I tried most of the desserts which were all pretty good but my favorite was the tofu mousse cake which could totally be sold a la carte in a pastry shop!
Lastly we had a mini hot souffle with 4 different types of sauces and Haagen-Dazs ice cream to round off our decadent brunch.
Cheers to a indulgent afternoon spent at Oyster & Wine Bar in Sheraton!
