What brunch recommendation list wouldn’t be complete without Zuma’s spread of sushi, sashimi, tempura and grilled items? If the buffet isn’t enough to satisfy, order a main of rib-eye steak or pork collar, too. Comes with dessert to share and free-flow Louis Roederer champagne, Kirin beer, Bloody Marys and other beverages at an extra charge.

Levels 5-6, Landmark, 15 Queen’s Road, Central, 3657-6388.

The meal comes at $480 per person, plus $220 more for free-flow Perrier Jouët Grand Brut NV Champagne as well as other alcoholic beverages.

Brunch at the famed Argentinian steakhouse is a lavish affair indeed. Five different buffet stations are teeming with delights. First, there’s freshly baked pastries and sweets at the Bakery, followed by bespoke egg dishes and omelettes at the Egg Station. Fresh seafood, charcuterie and cheeses are available at the Cold Bar, while the Carving Table serves up the restaurant’s signature Argentine Black Angus prime rib. Of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete with a cake or fresh fruit for dessert. Add on free-flow Ayala Brut Majeur NV Champagne and cocktails along with other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

7/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central, 2321-8681.

The upscale burger joint has eschewed your typical brunch buffet in favor of a set menu that comprises a mix of salads, starters and a dessert to share plus a burger or other main per person at $358 each. Go for dishes such as the avocado and ricotta toast, breakfast hamburger, or the English breakfast. Add on two hours of free-flow beer, wine, rosé, Prosecco, Bloody Marys, Aperol Spritzes or soft drinks. You can order a la carte, too. Oh, and the brunch is available all day.

3/F, California Tower, 30-32 D’Aguilar Street, Central, 2450-5778.
