Le Chef: Superb Breakfast Buffet at The Manor Hotel

I've been to Baguio on almost every summer of my life but could you believe that I've never stepped upon The Manor Hotel.  If wasn't for Baguio Food Tour 2014 (#BFT2014), I wouldn't have discovered the elegance of The Manor Hotel and the gastronomic wonders of Le Chef's breakfast buffet.

I couldn't help but fall in love with the beauty of the place.

It's very in line with nature and it is kid-friendly too.

Le Chef adopts a strict dress code.  It requires a  smart casual attire.  And, sleeveless shirts, tank tops and slipper sandals are not allowed so be sure to take note of that. 

le chef delicatessen
Le Chef is connected with Le Chef Delicatessen so you can expect a wide range of freshly baked pastries among the buffet selections.


They have the basic pastries like bread rolls, tasty bread, whole-wheat bread (for health-conscious ones like me) and croissants.

I noticed that the pastries vary on every refill.  The pastries are offered with warm butter and jams: strawberry, mango and orange marmalade.

Who could resist this luscious fruit-topped Danish Puffs?

Cereal with Milk
Cereals has always been a popular choice with kids.  Well, two of my three (third being rice crispies) are available: corn flakes and coco puffs.

I don't think I've ever appreciated the comfort of a hot bowl of healthy fiber-rich Monggo Soup with Roasted Garlic, Chili Flakes and Onion Leeks as I've had on that cool morning.

The Spicy Seafood Salad has tomatoes, bell peppers and cuttle fish.  It reminded me of kimchi but this is an extravagant rendition.

You can see from the way Kuya tosses the omellete that you're in good hands.

Mushroom Omelet, Orange Marmalade and Blueberry Jam Smeared Raisin Bread and Banana Bread

I just couldn't resist the fragrant smell of the Egg Omelette kuya was making so I requested an extra mushroom-filled one for me.  I also had their delicious Raisin Bread with Mango and Orange Marmalade Jam and Banana Loaf.

If only I wasn't stuffed already I would have indulged myself with their yogurt offerings. But since I was, I only got to try the Plain Yogurt which was really good

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I highly recommend Le Chef's breakfast buffet spread.  The price you pay is well-equated with the food quality and service that it offers.
