Looking to step up your boozy brunch game beyond the usual mimosas and smashed avo? Venture down the coast and you'll find yourself a winner at Hotel Sorrento, which has just kicked off a new series of bottomless brunches infused with the flavours of Hong Kong.

Running every second Saturday from 1–3pm, the feasts take place in the seaside venue's Hong Kong-inspired diner ShiHuiShi, helmed by Head Chef Junlin Yi. Book a spot and you'll sit down to a flavour-packed spread of Cantonese cuisine spanning the modern and the traditional.

Expect plates like prawn toasts paired with whipped cod roe, mushroom and tofu san choi bao, and crispy chicken ribs elevated with a Sichuan mayo. Oh, and dumplings galore, of course.

While you dine, you'll enjoy two hours of free-flowing sips, including the punchy Pink Lotus cocktail starring lychee and Thai basil, and a lemon myrtle and kakadu plum vodka-based creation they call the Ginga Ninja.

Tickets are $75, which also includes a post-brunch drink at Hotel Sorrento's Salt Bar, to enjoy overlooking the bay.
