English Breakfast on British Royale

At the Rubens At The Palace Hotel your English Breakfast is a sight to behold and a delicacy to savor. This substantial cooked breakfast comes with your choice of bacon, sausages, eggs, black pudding and the quintessential tomatoes and mushrooms. There is some discussion within the team if baked beans should come as standard to dip the rest into but that is a blog post onto itself. Don’t forget to add a side of toast!
If you’re a vegetarian the Rubens caters for you too with a vegetarian option of the English Breakfast. Although we would recommend their avocado toast with a poached egg. Simply put, delicious!
American Breakfast on The Sumptuous Soul of America
You’ll need a good and filling breakfast before you explore Chicago with a 90-minute architectural river cruise to discover how the Great Fire of 1871 paved the way for the birth of the skyscraper. In the United States breakfast often consists or either a cereal or an egg-based dish. However, a stack of pancakes with copious amounts of butter and maple syrup are also a firm favorite. If pancakes don’t tickle your taste buds perhaps waffles with fruit? Cranberry juice is also an American staple at breakfast.
When traveling in the South you’ll see biscuits and gravy on the menu in many restaurants. The biscuits are a type of small baked roll with a crumbly interior. The white gravy is often made using pork sausage crumbles and dairy-containing ingredients, such as butter and heavy cream. This creates a rich and hearty savory breakfast that has become a classic.
Japanese Breakfast Majestic Japan
With over 100 years of hospitality experience, the five-star Imperial Hotel Osaka places you along the Okawa River in the heart of vibrant Osaka. Stay in the midst of one of Japan’s best cherry-blossom-viewing locations and enjoy a traditional Japanese Breakfast.
Unlike many other kinds of breakfast you’ll experience, a traditional Japanese breakfast consists of foods that make up a complete meal. Usually savory, the breakfast could conceivably be enjoyed at lunch or dinner. Typically made up of steamed rice, miso soup and a protein such as grilled fish with side dishes that vary. Some favorites being tsukemono (Japanese pickles), nori (dried seasoned seaweed), natto (fermented soybeans), kobachi (small side dishes which usually consist of vegetables).
Although the above might seem like a lot of food, portion sizes are small and the meal is not intended to be heavy or overly filling.
Iberian Breakfast on Spain & Portugal in Style
Both in Spain and Portugal breakfast tends to be small, though not of course for our guests in hotels as there’s a smorgasbord of choice. For locals however, a croissant or other sweet bread with cafe con leche (milk coffee Spain) or meia-de-leite (milk coffee Portugal). There could also be bread, cheese and cold-cut slices of meat. In Spain that meat would be cured ham otherwise known as jamon.
In Spain a popular ‘breakfast’ is actually elevenses or a midmorning snack. In Spain this may involve tostada con tomate: toasted bread with crushed fresh tomato and olive oil added to it. Some people even rub garlic on the bread. Simple but very tasty. And of course, with another coffee. Another favorite for this time is a big slice of tortilla, the Spanish omelet with potato and onion inside.
Another drink that’s often consumed at breakfast in both countries is fresh orange juice, as Spain and Portugal grow lots of oranges. In cafes, oranges are put through a juicing machine and the juice is served in a glass often with a sachet of sugar at the side so that it can be sweetened to taste.
