MELIÁ SHANGHAI HONGQIAO
Daily breakfast buffet 6:30 - 10:00 a.m. / Room service 6:00 - 11:00 a.m.
What makes this breakfast special?
The Shanghainese people call their favourite breakfast dishes the ‘big four warriors’. The ingredients are cheap and they’re easy to make, but they’re also nutritious and full of flavour. They’ve existed throughout Shanghai for many years, and have become the classic breakfast foods. The city’s profound love for them is due not only to their quality and convenience, but also to the fact that they represent and evoke the memory of old Shanghai. Nowadays, the
‘big four warriors’ can be bought and eaten throughout the whole day. They’re enjoyed with tea in the afternoon and as a midnight snack.
What does it include?
The buffet offers a wide variety of freshly baked bread and pastries; cold cuts and cheeses; seasonal greens; different kinds of eggs; several hot
dishes, such as grilled sausages and bacon; cereals; seasonal fruits; freshly squeezed juices; coffee and specialty teas.
You can sample local specialties like noodle and wonton soups; healthy congee with pickles; steamed vegetables and stuffed steamed buns. À la carte options are also available, as well as Meliá’s ‘Balanced Breakfast’ selection, which is based on guests’ nutritional needs.
During the week the breakfast menu changes slightly each day, and brunch is served on Sundays.
What are the highlights?
The freshly prepared noodle soup. It can be combined with a range of options to cater to each diner’s personal tastes, such as spicy oil, fresh corian
der, dried shrimp and seaweed. It’s a perfect start to the day.
