Delightful breakfast, everyday!

During my vacation in Sydney (13 - 21 Dec 2010), I look forward to breakfast, each and every day. Breakfast at the Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour Ceezens Restaurant was consistently delightful. I love their spread of organic jams, breads and fruit juices. 

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. At the very least, I believe it is important for one to have breakfast everyday. I make it a point to ensure that I have breakfast everyday, even if it was just a very simple serving of bread. Here is a link discussing the benefits of having breakfast.

When I was staying at Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour, breakfast was so delicious, healthy and delightful, except for the 15 Nov 2010 when I had to leave the hotel at 3 a.m., I had breakfast for at least an hour every day. I wanted to savour and enjoy the time for breakfast. I figured that the staff of the Ceezens Restaurant could have easily tell that I love the breakfast. They could recognise me by the fourth day of my stay in the hotel.

One interesting item on the breakfast menu was the pancake. The Ceezens Restaurant, where breakfast is being served, has an automatic pancake-making machine that makes pancakes. I think my dear friend, Mystic, will love it and have pancakes everyday if she knows of the pancakes. At a push of a button and a short wait of two minutes, the pancake-making machine makes two pieces of pancakes. The best part is that the Ceezens Restaurant provides delightful fresh cream, organic strawberry jam, rich chocolate fudge, golden honey and organic fruit jam that complements the pancakes.

Another thing that I like about the breakfast is its spread of fresh organic breads and organic jams. I miss the Vegemite too. With Vegemite, I know I can have my healthy dose of Vitamin B everyday.

My favourite beverage for breakfast at Ceezens Restaurant was the soy milk. The fresh milk there were fresher than those we have in Singapore. I prefer soy milk because I was told that people of my blood-type will do better with a diet that has minimal dairy product. The organic fruit juices were wonderful too. I helped myself to servings of organic watermelon juices on some of the days.

The muesli were also another favourite item of mine. I like the cruncy texture of the almonds. On the side, to ensure I have my daily intake of proteins, I had eggs and baked beans every day.

My initial choice of hotel for my recent vacation in Sydney was not Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour. Being prudent budget wise, I had opted for a three-star hotel along Pitt Street. However, I must have visited Sydney during a busy period of the year. All the three-star hotel available through my tour agent were fully booked. Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour was the available choice that my tour agent recommended me. It is a four-star hotel. I think Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour distinguishes itself with its wonderful breakfast. For its wonderful spread of healthy breakfast, I am most willing to consider it as my choice hotel should I visit Sydney again, provided my financial means allow me to afford so.

Thanks Goldilocks.

Khy: According to this:
It helps to avoid dairy intake for weight loss purpose. And the doctor asked me to cut down on dairy intake for my sensitive stomach.
