Now with branches in Wan Chai, Mong Kok, Sheung Wan and Tsim Sha Tsui, it’s hard to believe that 18 Grams first started out at as a tiny espresso bar in Causeway Bay. But we’re not here for the caffeine this time, friends. We’re here for severe grease injection. Don’t be put off by the fact that they try to give it a healthy edge by calling it an ‘Aussie breakfast’ ($108). What they’re offerring is solid – sausages, mushrooms, scrambled eggs, bacon, baked beans and grilled tomatoes. All the usual suspects then, handled deftly.
The fry-up is a hallowed meal for many. What better way to kick-start your day than a massive plate of (and various combinations of) sausages, eggs, bacon, toast, black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms and chips? It’s the perfect hangover cure too if anyone's going to party hard at one of Hong Kong’s best bars.
