Le Dome de Cristal as already mentioned, is owned by the Ambrosia Group (Previous review: Le Dome de Cristal I ). Le Dome de Cristal is named after the famous drinks by Louis Roederer and their famed Cristal champagnes. On this Saturday, we got invited over to try out their new weekend Brunch Menu. I don’t usually do much buffet brunch events but upon hearing that they will be serving Unlimited 36 Months Jamon Iberico ham and with a Main Course for $480, it piqued my curiosity enough. Unlimited free-flow Louis Roederer Champagne can be had for an additional $280.
6 Seasonal Oysters included in $488 price - Tasmanian today
Later on, they will try to serve 2-3 different regional oysters when they are in season. Super fresh and oceanic, I will rather have these high quality Oysters than the unlimited ones served in buffets.
Main Course #3 - USDA Rib Eye Steak with Potato Wedges and Grilled Vegetables
This was sliced thin but came as a big slab, like a French Entrecote steak. It has a good grilling aroma. I prefer it to be even more tender but the flavour was good. ~ 7/10
Main Course #4 - Grilled Prawns and Jamon Linguine Pasta
This surprisingly had a lot of garlic and less sauce than imagined. It was good for a lunch pasta, and the portion was huge. I can’t help but be reminded of their Lobster and Red Prawn Pasta during night time too… ~ 7/10
Main Course #5 - Lamb Shank with Mushrooms, Mashed Potato
Cooked until fork tender, this had a lot of red wine taste in it. This is something unexpected in a Hong Kong restaurant, but so appreciated. Yummy and gelatinous. ~ 9/10
Green Tea and Red Bean Cakes -
Actually this was surprising to me as the Matcha taste was quite strong.
If not for the unlimited Jamon Iberico ham and the Main Course, I would have eaten a lot of this ~ 8/10
Raspberry Mille-Feuille -
Probably a bit unfair to ask my opinion, as I have utmost stubbornness when it comes to Mille-Feuille pastries and only Paris Standard exists in my books. This one was at least cute, that’s all I have to say…
French Cheeses -
All good quality, artisanal grade stuff. You won’t find these in buffet settings in HK.
Really appreciate Le Dome de Cristal providing these at all. As mentioned above – it’s Quality over Quantity.
Unlimited French Cheeses, and plenty of Desserts.
Had about 3 of the Champagne Jellies in Verrine style too… -
Thinking back, I wondered how I ate so much Jamon ham, Mains and everything else. It was a nice Saturday Brunch indeed.
Great Value for Money -
$480 with 6 Shucked Oysters, one Main Course, unlimited Jamon Iberico and French Cheeses, plus many more. An additional $280 for free-flow Louis Roederer Champagne. I have to re-iterate that I ate about 10 plates of those 36 months Jamons, so may be I am a little biased and overly excited.
