I knew we would eat well during our stay at the Viceroy Bali. The real luxury, though, started the second day. I loved our 5 course dinner, but I expected fabulous things from Chef Nic before we even arrived. The breakfast at the Viceroy Bali, though, just surprised me immensely.
Instead of the typical hotel buffet breakfast, the Viceroy Bali offers an a la carte, all inclusive breakfast menu, complete with appetizers and desserts. I tried to play it all cool, like I can afford to eat breakfast like this all the time, but I could not hide the fact that I was simply giddy about breakfast!
And, that my friends is how I had the following for breakfast: 1) fresh squeezed beetroot and apple juice; 2) a latte; 3) warm pastries including a chocolate croissant and cinnamon raisin roll; 4) fresh fruit platter; 5) citrus crepes as a breakfast appetizer; 6) a mushroom omelet; 7) side of crispy bacon; 8) another latte; 9) carrot and ginger juice; and 10) a breakfast dessert of coconut rice pudding. And, that was just day one.
They had to roll me out of the restaurant. I am not kidding, I struggled to peel myself off the cushions set neatly on the floor of the short Asian-style table.
Day two was something similar, merely swapping out a few dishes. Breakfast is my favorite meal, so I was in heaven. I did not care that I was overstuffed or that I had not been hungry in days, I just enjoyed the decadence while it lasted. I knew I would never eat breakfast like this again.

The Viceroy Bali hosted our stay for the weekend, but my opinions are my own.
