The Vegan Food
We were served a variety of canapés in the Executive Lounge during our stay and it was great to see that there were vegan options available (including breads, salads, mini spring rolls, stuffed tofu, nuts, banana chips and fruit). The wine in the executive lounge wasn’t vegan but they did have vegan lager (Heineken), some spirits as well as a range of soft drinks, including tea and coffee.
We enjoyed daily breakfast in the OPEN restaurant and it was one of the highlights of our stay. There was a really good selection of fresh fruit so each day was started with a healthy & fresh fruit platter.
Chef Zul and his team were extremely helpful, pointing out dishes that were vegan and adapting dishes that weren’t. We felt very grateful that they took the time to make vegan versions of some local dishes for us. It meant that every morning we had a huge range of delicious vegan food to sample such as this delicious ‘tempeh mendoan’ which had a light and crispy batter and big, slabs of tempeh inside.
We also savoured fresh vegetable soups and flavour packed noodle dishes, meaning that each morning was a vegan dining extravaganza.
We could choose from all the other vegan ingredients available to create our own vegan breakfast delights, our favourite being this fresh seedy bread, drizzled in maple syrup with raisins and walnuts sprinkled on top.
We dined at OPEN in the evening as well as at breakfast, and had an amazing vegan meal, here is a detailed review of our experiecne at OPEN.
