A new weekend brunch menu at Uma Nota brings the vibrant flavours of San Paulo to Central Soho.
Hong Kong really is a brunch city; from standalone restaurants doing innovative menus to hotels offers tremendous spreads, brunch is a major dining occasion in the Fragrant Harbour and now you have another excuse to kick off your weekend in style with the arrival of the new Brunch da Rua at Uma Nota.
Peel Street’s modern boteco has created a new menu that pays homage to Sao Paulo’s street style snacking culture. The casual fare of the tough streets of one of South America’s largest and most vibrant cities has been elevated and given a unique Japanese twist to its South American flavours.
Brunch da Rua – rightfully named “Street Brunch” – opens up with starters and street snacks to whet the appetite, including local Latin favourite tuna tartare, fresh fish with açai ponzu, roasted shallots, sesame seeds and an onsen tamago for a creaminess; and Coxinhas de Frango, fried chicken and okra dumplings with homemade chilli sauce.
Also look out for the Avocado Salad, with grilled octopus, green leaves, creamy avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers and a refreshing sweet green chilli dressing; and the original Crab Roll creation, an unlikely medley of flavours including banana, sour cream, crab and a dash of coriander oil. For those looking for more, Uma Nota brunch classics like the California Roll with homemade dendé mayo, and Miso Tiradito, a twist on the ever-popular hamachi ceviche of Peru, are also available.
For the main event, every two guests can select one of the four large plates to share amongst them. Choose from salmon teriyaki cooked to perfection thanks to Uma Nota’s mastery of smoking and grilling; Costelinha de Porco pork ribs that fall from the bone and come in a tangy pineapple barbecue sauce; Fraldinha flank steak marinated in soy and lime with a side of classically Brazilian farofa of banana and bacon; and 21 Day Aged Bone-in Ribeye, served with a house vinaigrette, corn farofa, yakiniku sauce, homemade garlic soy blend and shiso salt.
Of course, the meal isn’t complete without the famous Uma Nota Dessert Platter – a spread of assorted homemade sweet delicacies that come with a serving of vegan ice cream, fresh fruits and berries.
And of course, weekend brunch can be (and should be) made boozy, so opt for the Bubbles and Beer package, which includes bottomless prosecco, bottled beers and soft drinks or top up with limitless caipirinha, fresca, spritz, red and white and with the Cocktails and More for 90-minutes.
God bless the weekend.
