After a tour on the Duk Ling junk which took us round the Harbour, G took me to Isola's, touted as one of the most happening eating places in town. It's not hard to see why. Located at the new swanky IFC Mall, Isola has a lovely terrace which overlooks Kowloon and on a nice day, probably one of the main reasons to dine there. Unfortunately, on the Sunday we were there, apart from the fact that I was suffering from a severe case of runny nose (that always happens to me on the first day in a highly polluted country!), the pollution index was pretty high which meant that Kowloon was a hazy sight. Thus, we decided to dine in!

We chose the Sunday brunch menu which gave us a choice of soup or antipasti buffet, pasta and dessert buffet. Before anything I had to down some Chinese pills to stop my nose from running anymore, downed with imported Italian still mineral water, no less, of course!

The antipasti buffet was scrumptious with a lovely selection of ham, salami, roasted veges, etc. Real pity I couldn't taste that much with the blasted runny nose! For mains, we both chose the spaghetti with prawn and crab which was yummy but such a huge serving!

The dessert buffet was fabulous but I was SO full by then so I could only manage a little bit of some.

Brunch at Isola's doesn't come cheap. With our 2 bottles of imported Italian still mineral water, brunch set us back nearly HK$800 (around RM400).
