     <22nd March 2019 – Hong Kong>> – Located within ifc mall, La Rambla by Catalunya boasts a sleek and modern 5,000 sq. ft. space with a terrace that overlooks the iconic Hong Kong harbour. Pair with incredible Spanish cuisine by Executive Chef Ferran Tadeo, and this makes for the ultimate social destination in Hong Kong. Inspired by Catalonian traditions, La Rambla launches a new brunch experience that highlights premium Spanish products and authentic Spanish recipes with a modern twist. Every Sunday, brunch is followed by an epic after party, complete with a live DJ on the open-air terrace.

    Priced at a valued HK$550+10% per guest, Sunday En La Boqueria Brunch captures the vibrant flavours of Barcelona’s famous food market, La Boqueria, through a vast array of tapas, meats and seafood offerings. Starting at LA BARRA (“The Bar”), guests can indulge on a brilliant buffet spread of the finest cuts of jamón ibérico, cured meats, Spanish cheeses and various types of anchovies, along with Catalan versions of ensaladas, coques and tostadas. Make your way over to HUEVOS HUEVOS!! (“Eggs Station”), where fresh Japanese eggs are cooked a la minute. Choices include Make Your Own Tortillas with ingredients such as bacon, zucchini, cheese, paletilla and croutons, Broken Eggs with Chorizo, slow-cooked egg with potato foam (The Bazaar), or simply, Eggs Your Way.  

    TAPAS, featuring some of La Rambla’s most beloved classics, will be served straight to the table. Dishes include Bikini, a mouth-watering jamón-and-cheese grilled toastie layered with black truffle, Jamón Croquetas, croquettes of creamy béchamel and savoury Iberico ham, and Patatas Bravas, traditional fried potatoes with spicy aioli sauce. Meat lovers should not miss the JOSPER GRILLED – everything cooked over charcoal. Opt for the juicy Grilled Tiger Prawns, or ask for the weekly-changing Sunday Specials.

    PAELLAS are made to order, including the Classic Paella created with pork belly, calamari and clams, Squid Ink Paella with clams, calamari and Catalan-style arroz negro, and Vegetarian Paella with grilled green asparagus, seasonal vegetables and Catalan-style arroz a banda. Guests are advised to choose one dish to share between two from the SHARED MAIN COURSES. Mains include La Rambla’s signature Traditional Suckling Pig “Segovian Style” served with seasonal mushrooms, Josper Charcoal Grilled Turbot with a scrumptious donostiarra sauce, and Wagyu Beef Cheek cooked “Fricando Style” braised in red wine and served with crispy shoestring potatoes.

    Conclude the meal with ALGO DULCE (“Something Sweet”), and dig into a delectable selection of pastries, traditional Spanish desserts, and even whole cakes. Ice cream lovers will be delighted by the Helado Nitro Ice Cream Sundae, a sundae of French vanilla ice cream with toppings prepared tableside.
