There’s one thing that makes me irrationally happy about holidays – buffet
Banyan Tree resort has a really big selection for breakfast.. so much so that, as much as I tried to stuff into my belly, I didn’t end up eating everything 🙁 Still, I did end up eating almost all of it, so that’s not too bad! I thought their freshly cooked omelettes were by far the best. Fluffy canary yellow eggs, still gooey on the inside, encasing bits of capsicum, bacon, onion, etc, etc. DELISH!!
It’s also worth calling out their service. They’re so attentive they won’t even let you carry your plate from the buffet area to your table. Instead, they quickly run up, ask to take the plate off you, and put it down on your table (a few metres away). If you order anything, they ask “Is this OK?” to check that you’re satisfied when the dish/drink arrives. And everything with a smile. I think 95% of the service industry need to take a few tips from these guys at the Banyan Tree…
Relaxing at breakfast
My breakfast of (clockwise from bottom): omelette, spring onion pancake,
croissant, peach tart, hash brown, tomato, sausage. That mango + yoghurt
dessert (top left) was AMAZING too. Also, our lattes (top right) were gorgeous!
A bowl of noodles with pork and shrimps. Looks plain but it was tasty
Grilled beef tenderloins and grilled cod fish. Random, but hey, I ate it anyway!
Breakfast ‘dessert’ of Brie and cheddar cheeses with French baguette, and fruit.
Irresistibly cute 🙂
