Day 2: We woke up to another amazing, sunny day (despite the forecast of clouds and rainshowers..Yay!) and headed off to breakfast at Sala Restaurant. We weren’t expecting much because it was not buffet, but were we in for a surprise! Breakfast, Sala-style, was a yummy feast! Check out the drool-worthy food pics after the jump!
See that scroll behind the treats? I love that they have this on our tables every morning. It has new Thai words for the day, the different fabulous activities for the day and some interesting info on Thailand or it’s culture. That day there was cocktail making classes among other things. Check out the contents of the scroll (right).
Excellent cold cuts, proper streaky bacon and yummy sausages (that aren’t very expensive) are not very common in Jakarta. What a treat for us!
Did you know?
French press coffee should only steep for 2-4 mins (depending on the size of the press) then should be poured immediately. Coffee that stays in the press for 20 minutes is considered spoiled.
We realized belatedly that we forgot to check out the cereals (no store-bought cereals here, mind you) and the fruit buffet.
BREAKFAST DAY 3
We decided to order smaller portioned dishes (relative to yesterdays breakfast bonanza!) so we could try the cereals and fruits.
I got my Hollandaise sauce on the side because I wasn’t sure I would like it.
BRAVE LITTLE BIRD
During breakfast we heard this little bird chirping and twittering all over the place. How lovely! Then it finally approached our table and started begging for food! My, this was one brave..AND loud little bird! it would ruffle up its feathers and puff up until you threw a piece of bread! Then it would come back for more and do the same thing. Once the bird got it’s fill, it would get one last piece of bread and bring it to her nest. The bird would go very near the different tables every morning. How cute is that? It reminded us of our Diplo-dog. LOL.
I’ve a video of the brave lil’ bird in action, but I’m still figuring out how to upload it in a smaller file format on YouTube. It’s in HD you see.
Check back in tomorrow for my post on Sala’s world-class spa! (It was recently nominated for the World Luxury Hotel Awards – Spa Awards 2011.)
