The Place

Let’s Brunch (which goes by 反正 in Chinese) is a new dedicated brunch spot that brings the laid-back vibes of Xiamen to Futian. With two branches already operating in Fujian’s most famous coastal city, Let’s Brunch is looking to transport diners from the hustle and bustle of Shenzhen while serving up some fine food.

The restaurant occupies the main and bottom levels of the building, while a hotel can be found on the top floor, and a bookstore on the second. The eatery specializes in brunch seven days a week, so if your social media followers have been deprived of the ‘yolk porn’ videos you used to post on a bi-weekly basis before moving to China, this is the fix. Also, the menu features other Western favorites like smoothie bowls, scrambled eggs and vegetarian eggs benny for the meat-averse. 

The Food

As we step through the doors of Let’s Brunch, one of their friendly staff members was quick to attend to our party. Upon being seated, our server recommended their signature dish – crab meat eggs benedict (RMB68) – made with Alaskan crab meat, flying fish roe, ham and, of course, Hollandaise sauce. 

When the bennies arrived, we were surprised by the absence of any accompanying hash brown or potatoes (so you’ll have to order that on the side). The eggs (although a bit cold) were perfectly poached, with shreds of crab meat and creamy hollandaise on top of small English muffins. Although the dish comes with two eggs benny, we left feeling still a bit peckish, so we’d advise ordering a side or two to share with friends.

What’s brunch without beverages? Alright, so there may not be bottomless mimosas, but they do have a good selection of coffee and fruit teas. We ordered an iced vanilla latte (RMB32) and iced lemon tea (RMB30), both of which hit the spot.  

The Vibe

With chill hip hop and R&B music playing overhead, this place exudes a minimalist, yet modern, aesthetic. The interiors consist of sleek black marble, concrete and accents of green shrubbery. If you ever happen to be in this area and want a light, healthy breakfast option, Let’s Brunch is the place to get your day off to a good start.
