In most hotels, breakfast remains the most popular meal, with guests outnumbering the lunch and dinner crowds.
To accommodate its growing morning clientele, Conrad Manila is serving breakfast at the C Lounge on weekends. Specifically designed for walk-in guests, the breakfast offers a premium range of dishes. The best part is that guests can have their breakfast while savoring the view of Manila Bay.
The spreads cater to the tastes of local and foreign guests. For starters, a choice of fresh fruit juices, or a detoxifier of pineapple, cucumber and lemon.
The food stations are designed for guests to customize their plates. Filipinos will be happy with the rice station, which is complemented with beef tapa, pork adobo flakes, fried maki and brown rice for health buffs. They can be spiced up with fried garlic or sinamaki.
Chefs can whip up a fluffy omelet with a selection of fillings for the “keto dieter.” If you’re craving for Filipino comfort food, there’s a mix of corned beef, cheese, adobo flakes in their omelet, topped with pork cracklings for crunch.
For a balanced meal in the omelet, there’s nutritious zucchini, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and cherry tomato confit with ham and bacon.
The international station presents the richer cheeses such as gruyere and emmental for onion soup. Tomme de savoie, the French Alps’ semifirm cheese from cow’s milk, and valençay cheese made with goat’s milk, complement the lavash or fine flatbread.
Homemade yogurts in shot glasses are flavored with classic choice of granola or chia seeds, or blueberry or strawberry compote.
The charcuterie offers both healthy and diet-busting cold cuts such as Iberico de Velota, lean salami, home-cured salmon that go with paté de fruit, pickled artichokes, olives, gherkins and salad greens.
The C Lounge is quiet and intimate in the mornings. You can sip your soy cappuccino while watching the clouds roll by across the sea. –CONTRIBUTED
