CIRQLE – Weekend BBQ Brunch

。CIRQLE – 週末出走之BBQ早午餐。

週末想來個小出走,當然首選南區。早前聽說Ovolo南岸酒店新設週末早午餐,用餐時間甚長,而且又有DJ配樂和特設的BBQ吧,新酒店新風格,便忍不住偷閒來到黃竹坑一試。幸而不但沒有失望,還有點小驚喜,原來設有西班牙Sangria 任飲,還有3款口味選擇(紅酒、白酒和玫瑰葡萄酒) ,而且更可選擇加配香檳。

Want to have a small escape from the busy life in weekends? I have also chosen to go to Southside and have a break. Heard that Ovolo Southsidr has launched weekend brunch in semi- buffet style, with DJ music, as well as outdoor BBQ bar. Trying out at a new hotel seems to be a good idea. Besides, after the visit, it brought me more surprise than I expected because of the free-flow Sangria, and additional champagne.

餐廳有分室內外位置,見天色不好,便選了坐室內的高檯,也較接受沙律吧位置。沙律吧比一般酒店更多素食選擇,例如紅菜頭西柚沙律,南瓜杏仁沙律,蕃茄配水牛芝士沙律等,顏色鮮豔,味道也很不錯。尤其喜歡紅菜頭沙律,沒有食到一點草青味,反而十分鮮甜。冷盤當然少不了港人喜愛的煙三文魚、蝦、翡翠螺等選擇,但小妹太忙著食沙律了,只試了翡翠螺,還是蠻鮮味的。

Restaurant has divided into indoor and outdoor sections. Weather was not nice, so we decided to sit indoor at the high table and close to the salad bar. There were surprisingly more vegetarian options at salad bar, such as beetroot and grapefruit salad, pumpkin salad and tomato and mozzarella salad. My favourite one was the beetroot salad as the grapefruit made the sweetness of the beetroot more outstanding. How could we miss the seafood section? There were plenty of options to choose from, such as prawns and salmon, but I was so busy on the salad bar and forgot about the seafood.

餐廳室外設有BBQ 吧,廚師即場燒烤,多款串燒任君選擇,如雞肉、大蝦等,還配備了近10款醬汁,有辣有不辣,隨自己喜好配搭。而另一邊有即炸雞塊和墨西哥脆餅,大廚準備了自家調製的辛辣香料,有孜然、辣椒、黃薑等,香辣又帶麻。而且有自家醃菜,如醃青辣椒和蕃茄,讓味蕾來點刺激。

BBQ bar is located at outdoor area, while the chef does the BBQ right in front of you. There are a variety of different ingredients for BBQ, such as chicken wings, prawns, pork and sausages, and they all can be paired with around 10 different types of sauce. I do like the Spicy salsa and Chermoula sauce. 🙂  Another side was the nacho bar, which also serves the deep-fried chicken with home-made spice (including hot pepper, ginger etc.) , as well as home-made pickles (jalapeno and tomatoes.) .

看到這麼多選擇,以為可以介紹甜品?那便會錯過熱輂了。其實每人可餐牌上選上一款主食,多是澱粉質,如焗芝士通心粉、牛肉小漢堡等,還有雜錦蔬菜天婦羅和莎莎醬焗墨魚仔。熱盤做得出色,但要看你的肚皮能否承受。

Ok, after all the aboves, I should start to introduce desserts, right? Then you may miss the hot main courses. Actually everyone can select one main course on the menu, such as mac’n’cheese, mini burgers, assorted vegetables tempura and baked cuttlefish. The tempura was one of my favorite, along with the cuttlefish. These all did pretty well  but you do have to think about your stomach.

Baked cuttlefish. Look for some bread or nachos to eat with!

甜品方面選擇是較少的,有朱古力撻、泡芙、朱古力窩等。朱古力墶有著開心果味吉士餡料,甜度剛好,一口食下,非常滿足。

It is relatively less options at the desserts bar comparing to the BBQ bar and salad bar.  Chocolate tart, puffs and chocolate fondue are quite standard in a buffet. However the chocolate tart with pistachio paste was very tasty. With the bite size, it was a very nice ending for the buffet.

Pick what you want!

整個早午餐的選擇那麼豐富,相信主廚應下了不少心思和苦功。希望下次放假能再和朋友來南區探險吧。

The variety of choice at the brunch showed the hard work and creativity of the chef. Hope to return with friends soon at our Southside escape.
