My apologies for being MIA the past half a year, but “adulting” aka working + overloading classes my last year has kept me quite busy. No worries, I made sure to bring my camera back to Boston this spring, so the adventures continue…

No better way to start the first day of 2017 than with my best friend (Papa Zhou of course) on the 30th floor of Hyatt on the Bund with a panoramic view of the most beautiful city. Our waiter chuckled at how long I gawked at the view before even looking at the food. 

So here’s how the deal works: you get free flow champagne and wine. Yes you heard right, you may drink to your heart’s content. If you circle around the room, you can pick up the appetizers you want or ask the chef at the station to cook what they specialize on the menu. 

Their Eggs Benedict with Caviar 

 Creamy and dreamy hollandaise sauce over a perfectly poached egg atop a thick (just enough chew) English muffin, topped with caviar. A must order dish and a favourite order of mine.

Vue Aux Sarments, Wagyu Rib Eye

 It was one of my dad’s favourites, but I personally thought there was too much fatty on the beef.

  Forget their lobsters (which they are not stingy with, btw), these babies are shucked only a few at a time in front of you to ensure maximum freshness. I don’t like to brag, but I might have slurped 10 or so down…

  You know it’s meant to be when you take a bite of the quiche and remark that you love it at the same time the chef brings 5 more to the table for you. Cheers to the VUE staff, I don’t know how you manage to read my mind.

Selection from their already-made dessert platter. 

But do yourself a favour and order the made-upon-request dessert. Their waffle with cinnamon apple and vanilla cream. 

Fluffy waffle and vanilla ice cream paired with a warm gooey poached apple cinnamon pastry entrapped in a buttery crisp layer. Look at that beauty. 

Finished it off with a cup of coffee (I lied, 2 cups). 

My favourite Bund brunch place of all time. Here they focus on quality over quantity so everything you eat is well thought out and freshly prepared. Make sure you order their make-by-request hot dishes and I recommend calling in to request window seating so you can slurp your oysters whilst admiring the most beautiful city in China.
