Lunch at Grissini, Grand Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong

Grissini at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Wanchai has the BEST Sunday lunch buffet in my opinion.  If you are in Hong Kong for just a few days and want to splurge on one good meal then I suggest you book early for a precious seat at their popular Sunday lunch buffet.

Unfortunately we were there for a weekday pre-Christmas lunch with good friends who flew in from Manila and Houston.

The normally beautiful view of the Hong Kong harbour now looked like this.

Grissini means breadstick in Italian and these are the best I’ve ever eaten. My no carb diet was quickly forgotten as I scarf down at least 2 (that I’m admitting to) warm, light and super crunchy breadsticks.

They are even better with a soak in top quality extra virgin olive oil and super thick, super expensive and super sweet balsamic vinegar. This is the only place in Hong Kong that I’ve found that serves this.

I found a small bottle of this balsamic vinegar in the supermarket sold for HK$900!! This is the good stuff so be sure to ask for lots of it. I even dip fresh strawberries in this vinegar and it heightened the sweetness and flavor of the strawberry.

All of us chose either the two course set lunch for HK$358 or three courses for HK$420. I will list the individual price of each course so you will see it’s much cheaper to order the set course.

I actually had the two course set starting with the veal and of course dessert. The veal was tender but the taste was just ok. Nothing that deserved the price. But then we were paying for the ambiance too :D.

The dessert fared better but still wasn’t to die for.

Others chose the limencello tart which was good too but I felt it lacked more lemony zing for my taste.

I wish the chocolate truffles were made with dark chocolate instead. Imagine there was about 8 pieces left on the table since no one wanted to eat milk chocolate. What a shame to leave those behind. I really loved the white chewy, nutty cookies though.

At least the coffee was strong and good.

I’d rather pay more to eat at Grissini on Sunday. Their weekday fare isn’t really that great in my opinion. Well it was a nice lunch among friends with endless stories and laughter. That was the most important thing.
