As I have visited Gordon Ramsay‘s Bread Street Kitchen in London before, I wasn’t in a particular rush to visit the Hong Kong branch when it opened. The restaurant has been very popular since its opening, and we finally manage to go for a late brunch on a Saturday at 2.30pm, and can get seated straight away without a booking.

Same as its London counterpart, Bread Street Kitchen in Hong Kong offers a modern British European menu. Located in LKF Hotel, the vibe of the restaurant is lively, and it has a warehouse style, industrial chic decor. The restaurant is open from lunch onwards for all-day dining, and also has a bar which serves a range of classic as well as innovative cocktails.

We are presented with a bread basket and some nicely chilled butter as soon as we are seated.


(1) As it is a warm, sunny afternoon, we decide to start off with a “Bronze” honey and yuzu marmalade ($78). This icy drink is blended with yuzu, kumquat and pineapple, and boasts citrus and refreshing flavours. 


(2) The Tamarind spiced chicken wings ($128) are served piping hot. The chicken wings are deliciously tangy, and the white sauce has an appetising tartness. 


We ask for wet tissue after eating the chicken wings, and are given these cutely packaged cleansing wipes.


(3) The truffle scrambled eggs on toast ($158) look a bit watery at first sight, but they turn out to be utterly mouthwatering. The scrambled eggs are exquisitely buttery, and even though you cannot see much truffle, the black truffle taste is very distinctive.


(4) The Bread Street Kitchen short rib burger ($188) is rather average. The beef patty is nicely moist but the meaty flavours are lacking, and the bun is a tad dry. The potato wedges are not crispy enough on the surface, and due to their large size, they are not soft or powdery in the centre.


(5) We end the meal with a Banana sticky toffee pudding ($88), which is a real winner – the pudding is wondrously rich and soft, and is attractively sweet but not cloying. Served with Muscovado caramel and clotted cream, the dessert is utterly addictive. Such a guilty treat but you must try it!


My thoughts on Hong Kong’s Bread Street Kitchen is quite similar to my thoughts on the London branch – some dishes can be improved but overall the food is certainly decent. Our brunch costs around $300 per head, which is not cheap but acceptable. Lastly, it is worth mentioning that the service is very swift at this restaurant, and all our food arrives within 15 minutes – we hope that they can keep up with this level of efficiency!
