Breakfast @ Dining Room, Cameron Highlands Resort

Lush surroundings. Cool climate. Overlooking the golf course, Dining Room at Cameron Highlands Resort is the perfect venue for breakfast. We were greeted warmly by the waiting staff, followed swiftly by the arrival of the juices, coffee/tea, fresh fruits and a bread basket at our table. Ahhh... the smell of freshly baked bread filled the air. The bread selection was good; both the warm croissants and banana muffins went down well.

There's nothing like freshly squeezed orange juice to perk me up. We were also offered a banana smoothie to try.

Instead of the usual breakfast buffets, Cameron Highlands Resort offer a cascade breakfast service whereby you order hot items off a menu. One of our dining companions had the Scrambled Eggs served with beef bacon, breakfast sausage, sauteed mushrooms, stewed tomato, fried farmhouse bread and hash browns.

The eggs were nice and fluffy; it's a pity they don't serve pork bacon/ sausages here or it would have been the perfect breakfast.

Whenever we stayed in their sister hotel Ritz-Carlton KL, I would always order the eggs benedict. When I saw eggs benedict on the menu here in Cameron Highlands Resort, I knew that was what I wanted for breakfast. A beautifully poached egg, with a runny yolk. Perfection. It was served on macaire-style potato croquettes with wild mushrooms and Hollandaise sauce.

Golden delight

And for desserts.. yes on holiday, we do desserts for breakfast too... we shared both the strawberry waffles and buttermilk pancakes. The waffles was filled with warm banana butterscotch, topped with strawberry compote, king island cream and cinnamon crusted mango tempura.

The buttermilk pancakes was wonderfully fluffy and was layered with rich apple compote. Personally, I preferred this to the waffles. It was served with crisp pineapple fritters, laced with honeycomb nougat and thick double cream. A sweet ending to our breakfast.

On the following day, we ordered eggs benedict again since we enjoyed it so much the day before. Two of my companions had eggs benedict on its own, but I opted for a huge breakfast and had eggs benedict with beef bacon, breakfast sausage, sauteed mushrooms, stewed tomato, fried farmhouse bread and hash browns. Very satisfying indeed.
