With the looming possibility of neo-colonialism from China, the Envoy has decided to take a step back to a time when the British ruled Hong Kong.
The Envoy, which is a cocktail bar and dining room on the 3rd floor of the Pottinger Hotel, is paying tribute to the person the hotel is named after, Sir Henry Pottinger, with a colonial-inspired brunch.
Sir Henry Pottinger was the first governor of Hong Kong from 1843-1844 and he helped transform the city into a major trading port.
The imaginatively titled Sunday Colonial Brunch features delectable dishes such as fish and chips made with a marsala batter, chili salsa in the scallop and cereal prawns and butter chicken waffles. Diners can also enjoy classics like a traditional roast, eggs benedict and steak and egg.
Venue: 3/F, The Pottinger, 74 Queen’s Road, Central
