Hyatt City of Dreams, Manila, Insane Breakfast!
After our debacle the night before, we were offered a free breakfast as a compensation and an apology. Since we didn’t know when or where we’d be eating during the day, we figured that we’d try and fill up as much as we could just in case. Luckily, the breakfast buffet at the hotel is HUGE. Like, Bigly huge.
As we were seated our coffee orders were taken, and told that they would be waiting for us by the time that we got back to our seats. With this, the scavenger hunt/food safari began.
There was an egg station with a local favorite “Egg Sardou” or you could have your omelette made to order.
A carved meat station was next door in case you wanted some ham.
Grilled tomatoes, hashbrowns, and buttered mixed vegetables were on offer.
Next to even MORE meat.
If that wasn’t enough, you could have some Iranian beef stew or buffalo wings. Perhaps some oatmeal would tempt you? If not, maybe Champorado? I did try that, as I figured why not! It’s kind of a like an oatmeal, mixed with sugar, milk, and chocolate. Taaaaasty!
Onwards to the cheese station!
The bagel station!
The fresh fruit station with yes, you guessed it, that’s yellow watermelon on the left hand side!
A congee station! Don’t know what congee is? Me neither!
Rice station with Chop Suey and a Guisado!
Wait you thought that was it? Nope! There’s more!
Fresh juice station…
“Slow” juice station. I’m guessing cold pressed maybe?
French toast, pancakes, and waffles!
Age Bitashi, whatever the hell that is!
More things I can’t pronounce! Naruto, Takuan, Hijiki, Tazukuri, and Inari!
Hiyayako, Tamago, Shake Zuke, and Natto! WOW!
And then, to top it all off Siomai and CHICKEN FEET! MMM TASTY BREAKFAST!
I couldn’t possibly even think about eating any more after gorging on all of this, so we called the Uber Black (because it was $0.75 extra) and were on our way to the Manila domestic airport for our lovely flight down to El Nido!
Breakfast was a bit pricey for Manila standards, but considering the other options (see, street food) it might be a good idea to fill up before heading out. Breakfast is free for some elite members and there are also breakfast rates that you can book directly with the hotel.
