Sunday Brunch at The PuLi
Brunch at the PuLi Hotel's Jing'an restaurant is probably how Marie Antoinette and her cohort of spoiled brats used to eat. The central room has buffet tables laid out with things like pate, crab legs, lamb chops, grilled artichokes and fresh Chantilly cream made from real vanilla beans. High class stuff. On top of having this AYCE area at your disposal, the wait staff brings you made-to-order dishes straight from the kitchen (you can choose an additional two entrees and one dessert from parts of the restaurant’s regular dining menu, stuff like cod in red curry, softshell crab sliders or grilled pork belly). Probably best to leave the kiddies at home for this one. The whole thing will run you 398rmb plus a 15 percent service charge per person, which includes free flow coffee, tea, soft drinks and juice. 588rmb and they’ll throw in beer and house wine, while 788rmb gets you all of that plus champagne.
