We try to always find a few nights to stay at the Metropolitan hotel in Bangkok. It's one of our favorites! And having the amazing brother team of Daniel and Shannon Moran working downstairs in the kitchen was always a bit of a drawing card ..... The brothers have both moved onto Parrot Cay now, also a COMO property Kim and I have worked at. Good luck guys! Anyway, the first of a few posts at the Met., our first meal was breakfast at Cyan.
The buffet is an amazing spread, but we start with coffee and fresh juice which is bought to our table before heading over. First up, fresh tropical fruits, including mango, pomello, watermelon & pineapple;
Then the little iced cups of yoghurt and fruit, fruit salad or little bircher muesli cups;
There's also the house made toasted muesli and choice of milk;
The cold cuts include ham, smoked salmon, avocado, sliced tomato and a few cheeses;
Fresh baked pastries, muffins, breads & croissants;
5 varieties of fresh baked bread along with 8 home made spreads, including strawberry, watermelon and pineapple jams, marmalade, peanut butter passionfruit curd and chocolate hazelnut spread.
The buffet spread is all amazing, between the two of us we manage to sample a little of just about everything.
But then we also get to choose one item off the al a carte menu. I select the big breakfast. The scrambled eggs are so creamy, and delicately folded, with pork sausage, roast tomato, mushroom, bacon and potato cake. All delicious, all be it very filling ....
Kim selects the poached egg on a giant home-made fluffy English muffin with roast tomato, sauteed spinach and hollandaise sauce. The hollandaise has been gratinated to a perfect bubbly golden.
We both appreciate a great breakfast, and this has to be one of the finest examples !!
