  • Weekend Brunch

    Table No. 1 in the Waterhouse Hotel was slow to throw its hat into the brunch ring, but good things come to those who wait. Offerings include a selection of four gourmet Benedicts stacked with goodies like Wagyu brisket, beef tongue, and house smoked salmon. Other items are more at the lunch-ier end of the spectrum, like barbecue pork ribs. Sweet options can please any appetite, from simple and sensible yogurt and granola to decadent French toast with marmalade and foie gras. For the cocktail nerds, there's drinks like the Corpse Reviver #8 and their own version of a Bloody Mary, made with kimchee and Absolut Peppar vodka. It's a hotel, and a nice one, to boot, so plan on dropping close to 400rmb for two. Bump that amount to 600rmb should you wish to hit the sauce. That includes the automatic 10% service charge.
