Brunching is one of my favorite activities on late Sunday morning. Last time we tried a Spanish brunch at Indalo, now we went to more of a Fusion brunch at Maneo’s on Tongren Lu.
Instead of a buffet Maneo offers a big menu and you can choose as much and as many times you like.
If you’re more into salads they have an excellent Caesar Salad and my now favorite Prawn Zucchini salad with almonds, Parmesan and truffle dressing.
Various styles of eggs can be had accompanied by a continental bread basket with warm croissants (the white bread is a bit too sweet).
To finish it off you can go for pancakes, warm chocolate brownies or Creme Brulee.
There’s more on the menu but this is what we chose. The price is 158 Rmb per person
There are no drinks include in the Brunch set but ice water is provide for free. A cup of coffee sets you back 25 Rmb.
Very friendly and fast service.
The chef makes it a habit to chat with the guests and asks them how they like it.
A nice touch.
Clean and earth-colored toilets.
They have sprinkled some fragrant leaves which keeps the odor at the right level.
On top of that their pissoirs are cooled with ice cubes.
What more do you want.
I don’t know whether it used to be a villa or something else but the building seems to be beginning 1930’s. The restaurant itself is modern hip, clean and spacious.
Great food, very friendly service although the last time we went it was bit spotty. If you’re lucky you may have a chance to enjoy the last rays of autumn sunshine on their quiet terrace.
