Brunches are usually served between 10:30 and 13:30. Hangzhou has seen many brunch restaurants in recent years. While some of them are in shopping malls, others in cultural tourism streets, some others even choose to settle in business and office buildings. Here are some representative yet different styles of brunch for you to try.
The menu at "Hello 27" is managed to cater for brunch eaters and the nearby office workers，some of whom are foreigners who like ordering a salad or pasta with juice. The Chicken & Avocado Laffa Wrap Salad dressed with yoghurt has been proved perfect. Wrapping salad greens and chicken with a soft bottom layer of laffa is quite similar to the way of eating Peking ducks. To eat in, the chef special snack Kaya toast is highly recommended.
