Breakfast Buffet … or a Box to Take Away?

Still  on the subject of food at the Rasa Sentosa Hotel, this time the Silver Shell Cafe has undergone a small transformation so that a breakfast buffet can be served.

Not surprisingly this buffet is of the same high standard that the evening one was, so even our fussy children found plenty of things to select and enjoy.

I think that the biggest surprise for our children when they looked at the selection on offer was the discovery that there are so many hot dishes with varieties of rice, noodles or dumplings, and even soup.

Naturally it was less surprise to find a good selection of tropical fruits.
Our children appeared (for once) to have adjusted to the time zone differences less well than Himself and I and have been going to bed late in the evening and struggling to get up in the morning.

Since there is a time limit on the breakfat service we initially dragged our sleepy unwilling  younger members of our family to breakfast the first day because we felt they should try and at least  to eat something,  but breakfast was full of grumbles and small hysterics over who shifted who’s fork and other  mind bogglingly trivial spats.  Luckily, we discovered an excellent service that is a brilliant solution to our problem.

It’s possible to ask for box from the staff at the bakery section of the buffet, and then you can load up your box with whatever your children fancy, which in the case of our offspring are croissants and bread rolls and a few toppings or fillings to go with them.

It’s part of the breakfast service so there is no additional charge and then et voila, we then have a “brunch” for our children that we put into the small fridge in our room and that they can have at their leisure once they are awake later in the morning. (in our case as late as 11.30 a.m.  one day!).

All it involved was that Himself and I had to take turns for our own breakfasts. One of us staying in the room with the sleeping children whilst the other one ate breakfast upstairs. The buffet options need to be seen to be believed… so let’s take a look!
