The Vegan Food
Breakfast at Cordis Hotel is served in ‘The Place’, located at the lobby level of this modern city hotel. It was good to find the breakfast buffet had some particularly clear labelling throughout, showing which things were vegetarian and also whether they included egg or dairy (as well as other dietary requirements such as nuts and gluten). This made locating the vegan options nice and easy which we really liked (and especially at breakfast time when our brains haven’t quite woken up properly).
Small dishes of Korean Style Mushrooms and Soft Tofu were in the ‘Healthy Section’ at breakfast and they were both suitable for vegans. In addition, the chef happily prepared Rice Paper Rolls for us which were not on the regular breakfast buffet. There were also vegetable dumplings and plain rice congee so with our early morning creativity flowing we foraged a selection of toppings from various different stations around the buffet to make a probably never before tried combination of sesame seeds, seaweed, Thai chilli flakes, lime juice, Japanese picked radish, soy sauce and deep fried shallots.
