Enjoy a World-Class Breakfast at Nobu Restaurant in City of Dreams Manila

Posh. That's the first word that came to mind while I walked towards the elevator that would take me up to Nobu Restaurant. There's a very sophisticated and yet comfortable vibe to Nobu Hotel in City of Dreams Manila that I'm sure a lot of its guests have already felt. After all, one of its admirers happens to be Academy award-winning actor Robert De Niro himself!

Nobu's simple but striking logo
Nobu features a modern, Japanese-inspired aesthetic that, I heard, is found throughout the hotel making the 321-room trendsetting boutique hotel a fun-luxury experience. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to take a peek into one of its rooms yet.

Still, I had the privilege of having breakfast last Saturday at the hotel's restaurant, a contemporary fine dining venue that can accommodate 335 guests. It has two private dining rooms, a sushi bar, floating water cabanas, two Teppanyaki tables, and a Chef's Table. 

sweets early in the morning? why not!
Booked hotel guests and walk-in customers at Nobu Restaurant can enjoy Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's signature contemporary artistic fusion and mouthwatering cuisine. Did you know, his culinary empire spans through 36 restaurants in 28 cities and five continents?! The menu is composed of modern Japanese fused with influences from Chef Nobu's travels all over North and South America.  

my, hopefully, "balanced" breakfast
When you do dine there, make sure to try a little of everything because all the dishes I've tried were really delicious. Go for Nobu breakfast specialties prepared by Chef Zachary Hillberry such as the Yuzu Soba Pancakes, Eggs Matshuhisa, Bagel and Lox, Breakfast Tobanyaki, Salmon and Egg Donburi, and my favorite Green Tea Waffles that are topped with raspberries and walnuts. Really yummy!

these green tea waffles are uniquely delicious!
Oh, but don't ever, ever miss asking for the French Toast because this would probably the very first time you'll get to eat one that practically melts in your mouth! It … is … that … good!

the HIGHLY recommended french toast
We ate in one of the private rooms that has floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the swimming pool and lovely cabanas. Even if sudden rain poured outside, it didn't diminish our beautiful view. The next time I'm there, I'd love to dine in one of those cozy alcoves along the main hallway.

Dining at Nobu is a pleasant experience because the staff are very friendly. We also got to meet Mr. Marlon Hirsh, the General Manager of Nobu Hotel. 

more yummy treats
Even if you are not staying overnight, walk-in guests are welcome for breakfast and dinner. Nobu Restaurant is open from 6AM to 10AM on weekdays; until 11AM on weekends; and from 6PM to 11PM every day.
