Hotel restaurants can be hit or miss, most of the time a miss, thus I tend to skip them unless I am in the mood for room service. However, one of the best places that I ate at while visiting Hong Kong was Feast, which is the signature restaurant of East Hong Kong.
The ambiance and food was so superb that I had to try it twice: once for breakfast and once for lunch. When I return to Hong Kong in the future, I will most certainly try out their dinner menu!
Breakfast time at Feast is exactly what its name suggests: a sumptuous and abundant meal. A “full breakfast” includes the continental buffet and a choice of several made-to-order dishes. I began with a delicious cafe latté and some scrambled eggs with a side of hashbrowns and mushrooms.
Then, with very little room left in my stomach, I headed for the continental buffet, which contained everything you could possibly desire from both Western and Eastern gastronomies. I opted for a chocolate croissant with pistachio shavings. Yes, it was as good as it sounds (I might have even found the space for two)!
Lunch time is similar to breakfast time in the sense that there is a buffet, as well as a six main dishes, however you must chose one or the other.
My husband and I were tempted by two of the main dishes; he with the roasted duck and I with the homemade butternut squash tortilini. We both began with an egg soup and ended with a chocolate cake.
This stylish restaurant’s philosophy of “simple things, done well” is certainly accomplished and you will agree with me upon your first bite. On a side note: do not worry about overindulging at Feast, because after your meal you can simply cross the skybridge (just follow the butterflies) over to the City Plaza Shopping Centre where you can walk off every calorie you lovingly consumed.
