Two of the giants of Beijing's Brewing world, Great Leap and Slow Boat, have both revamped their brunch menus, featuring expanded menus of dishes made in partnership with local producers. The Kempinski's all-day dining restaurant Kranzler's has also upgraded their Sunday brunch buffet, adding a Champagne option. More on that on the blog this week. So much for a healthy start to January.
At Great Leap, they've come up with a simple menu of sandwiches, melts, omelettes and breakfast plates, most featuring a combination of eggs, hashbrowns, house-made sausage and bacon from Kitchen Collective. They've also got freshly pressed coffee from Rickshaw Roasters for RMB 20 (and of course all their tasty beers).
Over at Slow Boat, they've teamed up with Andy's Craft Sausages for dishes like "The Pancake Tower" and "The Burrito Brunch", as well as a muesli bowl courtesy of Miss Muesli. If you're looking to get your drink on, there's all-you-can-drink beer between 11.30am and 2pm for RMB 120. Scan the menu below:
A couple of upcoming events to watch out for:
- Three Michelin-Starred Chef Umberto Bombana is in town for one night only for a five course black truffle tasting menu at Opera Bombana on January 24. Book early to avoid missing out on his fabulous food.
- Also on January 24, mindfulness coach Joanna Cheung will host a workshop at MOKA Bros in Solana on encouraging your children to develop healthy eating habits. The ticket price (RMB 60) includes breakfast.
- All you romantic types, don't forget to book early for Valentine's Day. The date is more and more popular in China and the big name restaurants will fill up FAST. See all the deals in our events section.
More events and promotions this week:
- Pick up a bargain at EMW's Chinese New Year Wine Fair at First Floor, with up to 50 percent off a wide selection of wines.
- Gung Ho!'s incredible value lunch buffet (it's just RMB 59) is proving pretty popular. Get it at their Gongti location.
