At most modern Ryokan’s, you’re often asked whether you’d like a Japanese traditional breakfast (which has been reviewed multiple times) or the Western Breakfast option, and because we were staying at Seikei so many times, I’m not sure why it’s taken so long for us to go for the Western option, but given that we were at Seikei for so long this time, we decide to go for the Western option for one of the days just to see what’s on offer.
So when we arrived for breakfast in the morning, we were looking forward to what the menu would show.
Surprisingly, the breakfast also came in several courses, and for the first course, we had a salad and a spinach porridge (congee) – both were very nice although the salad had a little too much salad dressing.
Next came the main plate, which had a combination of different “western” items, although the fish was a little odd in my opinion, but the bacon was very delicious (not too salty). The eggs however was a little overcooked for scrambled standards; it is funny how although the Japanese does so many cuisines right, their perception of a “western” breakfast seems to have stayed at a standard of 1980s.
Along with the main plate was a large basket of bread, all the bread were baked on premise and was fresh and delicious, I do tend to feel that general preference for bread in Japan is to make them as soft as possible – so you won’t find your typical sourdoughs here.
To cap off breakfast, we had a fruit plate that was the same as previous breakfasts, which were very sweet and fresh!
