Sunday Brunch at Whisk, The Mira Hong Kong

In October 2015, to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary, Edwin and I headed over to Whisk @ The Mira to try out their luxurious Sunday brunch.

W1

There’s the option of al fresco dining at the open-air lounge, but we preferred to stay indoors, where there’s air-conditioning. Plus I didn’t want to sit on a lounge chair, have the food at the same height as my knee, and then reach for it awkwardly. I take dining very seriously – good food is meant to be enjoyed at an optimum angle!

Alright, enough yakking from me – you came here to check out the buffet spread, didn’t you?

W2

Literally more than a dozen different types of salads and starters.

W3

Charcuterie (cold cuts) on the left, Caesar salad on the right. All-you-can-eat croutons and crispy pancetta? Don’t mind if I do.

Pfft, who gets excited about salad at a buffet, you say? Here are the big guns:

W4

Boston lobsters and freshly-shucked Fanny Bay oysters. Now we’re talkin’!

W5

Crab legs, mussels, and prawns. Bet you can’t tear your eyes away from the mountain of lobsterrrrrrsssss…

W6

Sashimi, gazpacho (in the foreground), and a caviar bar.

W7

W8

Outside, there’s a BBQ station, featuring various types of grilled meat and vegetables.

W22

Suckling pig! And a very long sausage.

W9

There’s even grilled bread!

So far, so good. But the pièce de résistance?

W10

Oh baby, you had me at hello.

W11

International cheeses. Wine sold separately.

W12

It’s carbohydrate heaven (or hell, depending on which camp you’re in).

W13

Would you just look at these perfect little baby croissants?

W14

Only incurable dessert addicts need apply.

W15

As you can see in the reflection, there’s also a mini-freezer with Haagen-Dazs ice-cream!

W16

Fruits are healthy. Strawberries are delicious.

W17

Mine, all mine! *diabolical laughter*

(I’ve clearly lost it.)

W18

It’s a fact: all desserts are more enticing when presented in a shot glass.

W19

And finally, a chocolate fountain! It’s rose chocolate, in case you’re wondering why it looks unusually pale.

“Bite-sized” main courses (one per guest) were also included. These were made to order.

W23

Crispy beef cheek with foie gras and rosemary gravy.

W24

Spinach fettuccine pasta with crab and white wine cream.

W25

Of course, we left room for dessert!

W26

This one came with a tiny shot of rum for a boozy kick!

W27

The staff arranged an additional dessert platter, although it didn’t comprise of anything we couldn’t get for ourselves from the buffet line. Still, it was a sweet gesture (pun fully intended).

Looking forward to many more years of celebrating with good food! ❤
