Daniel Posted June 1, 2016 Author Share Posted June 1, 2016 So I landed in Nanjing around 8 o clock at night, I drove a couple of hours to Zhangjiaghang and was in the Jinling Hotel by, 10 or 10:30.. After a long day of travel, i was not very hungry.. I sat on the hard bed, ate a couple of melatonin and had my last good sleep for about 10 days. The following morning, brings us to the breakfast buffet. It's a pretty beautiful thing this morning buffet.. The one thing I love about CHinese breakfast is, soup and noodles are a major foundation block.. And it's even better when one can get noodles in their soup. Front in center you have an "American" style salad bar.. Lots of creamy dressings and things that look like Russian Dressing. Here is a station for cold plates: Top left Celery, cold beef, string beans, smoked tofu, some greens with sesame oil and jelly fish Another Station: BBQ Pork in a pastry and fried dough: Love these vegetables.. I put some chinese vinegar on the greens and I am in love. One is like a water spinach, the other is like a soy protein.. Love the description of the soy protein: "thing" Almost every place has a soup station.. It is often hidden. For example in the first class lounges, you can get Ramen or some type of soup.. You just have to ask. Every breakfast buffet in China has a soup guy.. You just have to no where to look.. You can get vegetables thrown in, to the right is a fried fish in sauce and pork in some sour vegetable.. Both are nice editions. More condiments for soup: Here are the congee, millet and soft warm tofu holders: Here are the condiments: There is seaweed, soy, vinegar,dried baby shrimp, hot sauce, cilantro, some type of pickled turnip., scallion and a couple of other things: I love, love the soft tufu.. I add dried shrimp, black vinegar, turnips and hot sauce.. I often add seaweed too.. Greens and a fried triangle, i think there was spinach in it. a slice of a porkchop and vegetables. This must have been a gym day Rice, pickled green and pork Another day: Greens, kimchee, dumplings, smoked tofu, some soy beans.. and a soup: Noodles, dried shrimp, vinegar, hot sauce, pickled turnips and dried seaweed.. Not too exciting but, it's pretty great for a free buffet in your hotel. . Quote Link to post Share on other sites
