TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie: Hong Kong Comfort Food with a French Flair

The friendly staff greet you at the entrance, and a server leads me to my table. Garbed with a crisp white top and a brightly colored scarf topped with a beret, the server suggests I try their signature Hong Kong style coffee while I wait for the others. And for a brief moment, the rustic charm of the brasserie-style interiors bring you to the famed streets of Paris until a quick glance at the menu reminds you that you're here not for French cuisine, but for traditional Hong Kong style comfort food. At TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie, the seemingly mixed visual cues is just one of the unique elements that make it stand out for a unique dining experience.   

TuanTuan is the first Chinese Brasserie in the country, serving classic Hong Kong style comfort food with a French flair. Traditional Hong Kong style favorites comprise the core of TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie's menu, served fresh from the kitchen amidst a sophisticated yet cozy French-inspired ambiance.
