Check this little bit of information out – this breakfast is available all day, at any hour at the very reasonable price of AED 45 only. Do I have your attention?
Plantation at the Sofitel JBR is a bright and airy space that has a lot of unique art, comfortable seating and a simple menu. The breakfast concept has three options for you to pick from: the Fry-up, the Oriental, and the Wellness.
All options are served with tea/coffee and fresh orange/pineapple juice.
You also get a bread basket. Oh bread..
I chose the Fry-Up. Mainly because I saw these two words – pork bacon.
The “starter” plate (as I named it) included smoked salmon with cream cheese, fresh fruit, slices of cheese and two mini pancakes with maple.
I know what you’re thinking…how is that enough? It really is, trust me. By the time you’re done with this, you nearly forget you have hot food coming.
The hot plate included baked beans, eggs – you can choose between an omelette, fried or benedict. I picked the benedict and a side of mushrooms, pork bacon and pork sausage (they have chicken sausage and veal bacon for non-pork eaters) and hash browns (these were so crispy, worth every calorie!).
My friend had the Oriental breakfast.
The starter plate had fresh fruit, fresh labneh and a falafel with hummus.
The hot plate included shakshouka, foul medames and grilled halloumi cheese.
The Wellness option includes multi grain breads, low-fat plain yogurt, soya and quinoa panna cota, dried fruits and nuts, and an egg white omelette and freshly sliced fruit.
We didn’t finish our hot food because we were so full and then couldn’t have lunch till 2 pm that afternoon. Given this breakfast is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, it would be quite the post-drinking treat, wouldn’t it? I’ve always thought the possibilities are endless with all-day breakfasts!
