Rimping Village Hotel – Chiang Mai

We stayed at Rimping Village Hotel, which was relatively close to the city centre and it had a free breakfast buffet.

They had the regular breakfast spread of breads/pastries, egg station and fruits.. but my favourite was the mango sticky rice….. the sweetest ripest mango…. so good!

FAIM? OUI OUI!!!

Yolk’s – Vancouver

I think I brunched too much this trip back.. yet I still had to try Yolk’s, a food truck that became so famous, they opened a restaurant.

Bacon Eggs Benedict with truffle lemon hash brown instead of English muffin…. This was different only because of the added truffle lemon flavour onto the potatoes.  I was a tad disappointed that it was potato wedges and not actually hash brown…

chicken and waffles…. not really into chicken but the waffles and the maple syrup sauce was pretty good….

FAIM? OUI OUI!!

Acme Cafe – Vancouver

When I was back in Van last year, Acme Cafe was pretty popular.  I tried their famous baked eggs benedict and didn’t find it to be too special.  I decided to give it another try this time……

I ordered the breakfast parfait (layers of yogurt, honey, homemade granola and fresh fruit with cinnamon toast) and this was the WORST parfait ever! The yogurt was extremely watery to the point I was worried I would get sick after…..

my friend ordered the mac n cheese which was ok but the salad was soggy…..My other friend ordered the turkey sandwich with chips.… it was average..

I don’t think I would be returning to Acme any time soon……..

FAIM? non non…

Eating in Banff – Canada

Because we had a decent lunch at Saltlik, we decided to try Saltlik in Banff.

nachos….. extremely disappointed… instead of guacamole, there were hard, unripened avocado….

Sirloin with sweet potato fries…….

striploin with salad…..

This meal was a bit disappointing when compared with the meal in Calgary.  The steaks weren’t that good and the service was subpar.

We went to Lake Louise to watch sunrise and it was so pretty!We hiked up to the viewing point and had an amazing view of the lake and the Chateau Lake Louise.

The reflection of the lake is just like a painting!

We didn’t stay at the Chateau because of the very expensive room rate, so we settled for breakfast there…… and it was also very expensive! The buffet breakfast was 33 CAD! That’s all I ate for $33…… it was not worth it…..

Lake Moraine, another breathtaking view.

FAIM? OUI OUI!!

Four Seasons Mumbai – India

In Mumbai, we stayed at the Four Seasons…..the service was good, but not as personalized as Trident.

The view from our rooms.  You could see the disparity between rich and poor in just this photo: Mumbai’s slum and the world’s most expensive private residence in the distance.

The breakfast buffet was better than Trident  though….masala chai…… watery though…

mango smoothie……………….. sooooooo goooood

mango lassi…….. I had 2 smoothies and 2 lassis… I have no self-control because I should have limited myself due to my lactose-intolerance…..

eggs benedict and floretine together!!!! I told them to put a piece of ham onto my eggs floretine….

hashbrowns and bacon…..

omelette….

dosa….. most modern plating for dosa ever….

japanese breakfast…. I love trying the Japanese breakfast at the Four Seasons because it’s also the only time I have it (apart from when in Japan)….

waffles with chocolate chips and syrup…..

FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
