Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila is one of the very few hotels where I eat pastries for breakfast. That is because of the top quality viennoiseries created by Chef Anthony Collar and his team. A variety of freshly baked whole bread and loaves are also available in the buffet. Egg dishes are also available upon request and are prepared a la minute.

Here are some of the French Pastries we tried. Both the Quiche and the Bacon Danish are savory pastries while the Pineapple Danish and the Peach Danish are sweetened pastries. All the pastries we tried were flaky, fluffy, and lightly buttered.

The Beef Benedict is served with beef brisket instead of the traditional ham or smoked salmon. The beef brisket gave it a sweet and savory taste. I still prefer the classic eggs benedict with smoked salmon which I am sure they can happily make upon request.

Egg and Rice Bowl | Horizon Club Lounge, Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila

The Egg and Rice Bowl is one of my favorites. The fragrant rice is rich in flavor and is enhanced with a fresh squeeze of lime. The pork belly was very crispy and tender, not too oily nor fatty, and went very well with the atchara (pickled vegetable).

The Horizon Kedgeree is their version of the Indian dish which is also very popular in Great Britain. The curry rice was made healthy by adding Adlai seeds. The smoked salmon went very well with the curry rice. The squeezed lime will brighten up the flavor of the curry rice, making it flavorful yet very refreshing.

As always, I ended my breakfast with assorted Fresh Fruits. I had watermelon (red and yellow), melon and honeydew, which were all very juicy and sweet.
