the excellent power breakfast at the diplomat
As the name states it, the Executive Breakfast at the Diplomat is quite executive and excellent! The buffet breakfast is divided into three major sections, the Western Section, the Indian Section, and the Cereals and Fruits Section.
The Western Section is more protein focused with meat items such as Bacon, Sausage, and Cold Ham. More protein means more energy, which means a more productive day at the office; never a bad thing. The bacon itself was cooked to perfection with a crispy touch. The Sausage and the Cold Ham is the extra mile Diplomat takes to make thing better.
The items, however, are not just limited to only meat products. They have other offerings such as Croissant, Cinnamon Rolls, Danish pastry, Mini Custard Filled Donuts, Mini Boston Crème Pie, Blueberry Pan Cake, Parsley Potato, Pasta, Sautéed Vegetables, Fried Rice, Porridge, and Baked Beans. And in our opinion, the Pan Cakes are spot on, perfect with a drizzle of caramel. Absolute heaven.
Taking a walk through the galies of Delhi is the sensation of the Indian Section. Puri Bhaji, Bada Sambar, Paratha, Curry Vegetables, Chhole Bhature, it is a cluster of exotic fragrances. For us, the Paratha, and the Curry Vegetables stole the show.
The Fruits on offer depends on the seasons of course, but they do make the best of what’s available. There’s Corn Flakes & Bran Flakes as the main cereals, with Muesli as an option to the health conscious. And the best of all is that you can create your own perfect bowl with the variety of toping they have on the table.
And if that’s not enough, you can order eggs as well, all prepared to your preference. You can go with Fried Eggs, Omelet, Hard Boiled Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, and Masala Omelet, and top it off with Mushrooms, Onions, Capsicum, Tomatoes, Chopped Chilies, Cheese, Ham, or a combination of any of these. But hey, no one is going to stop you from going with all of these. You’re only limitation is your creativity and your appetite. But let’s not forget about the beverages. They offer Fresh Juices and a wide variety of Tea and Coffee, all available according to your taste and preferences.
