Bonus: ¿ONTAS? Night Brunch at Brickhouse

¿ONTAS? Night Brunch at Brickhouse Hong Kong

It’s gone a bit quiet at Brickhouse of late, but we think that’s about to change with the launch of the restaurant’s ¿ONTAS? Night Brunch, which sounds pretty darn perfect for the night owls amongst us. Guests can opt for The Full Package (food and drink) or Liquid Courage (2.5 hours free-flow drinks). Expect taco platters, guac and chips and micheladas aplenty.
