There's an egg station where egg dishes and omelettes are prepared a la minute. There'a also a noodle station offering a variety of broths, noodles, meats and vegetables. To cater to the hotel's international guests, the buffet also offers Western, Japanese, Chinese and Indian hot dishes.

Just like anywhere in South East Asia, rice porridge is also a favorite breakfast meal in Thailand. Locally called Khao Tom (ข้าวต้ม), this rice porridge is a bit more soupy and less mushy. It is usually served with pork or chicken balls, sometimes also with shredded chicken meat. I topped mine with Chinese celery, fried garlic and some white pepper.

Another popular breakfast dish in Thailand is Guay Tiaw Gai Cheek (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวไก่ฉีก), or simply Chicken Noodle Soup in English. Rice noodle is traditionally used in this dish, but I prefer it with egg noodles. I noticed a hint of lemon grass in the broth which makes it fragrant while fish sauce adds saltiness and a distinct flavor to this dish. Guay Tiaw Gai Cheek is perfect with shredded chicken, unfortunately, only chicken balls were available from the noodle station.

Khao Niew Moo Ping (ข้าวเหนียวหมูปิ้ง) Buffet Breakfast at Market Café, Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit

If you are a fried rice type of person, some of the dishes that goes well with it is the Khao Niew Moo Ping (ข้าวเหนียวหมูปิ้ง) or Grilled Pork Skewers which are cooked fresh from the Grill Station. You may also want to try some of the Thai-style Dim Sum (ติ๋มซำ) which tastes a bit different from Cantonese style dim sum. This shumai for example, called Kanom Jeeb (ขนมจีบ) in Thai, taste a bit sweet.

Kai Jiew (ไข่เจียว) Buffet Breakfast at Market Café, Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit

A very simple but very popular (my personal favorite) breakfast meal in Thailand is the Kai Jiew (ไข่เจียว), or commonly called in English as Thai Omelette. The distinct flavor of this egg dish comes from the fish sauce mixed with the scrambled egg. Kai Jeiw is normally served on a bed of steamed rice. When ordering Kai Jiew from the egg station, you have to specifically ask for Kai Jiew, roughly pronounced in English as "kite chow", or you can just say Thai Omelette (stressing out on the Thai). Otherwise, they tend to serve Western style omelette to foreigners.



Walking around Bangkok, you will notice how much Thai people love fresh fruits, and these sweet tropical fruits are also popular during breakfast time. Market Cafe has an entire station dedicated to fresh fruits. Sliced fruits are ready to be eaten or can be pureed into a fruit juice. I had Rose Apples and Watermelon Juice.



The buffet breakfast is available daily from 6:00am to 10:30am. Walk-in guests can also dine for THB1,000.00 per person.
