Xiamen City Hotel, Xiamen, 12 October 2018

A quantum leap from earlier breakfasts on this journey. Here we truly have quantity combined with quality. I barely know where to begin. A huge selection of Chinese dishes, of course. But, equally, a very ample spread of Western food: cold cuts, fruit – fresh and canned – many different breads, jams and honey, vegetables, and, of course, a hot bar.  Large selection of teas, including fruit and herbal, and while there are tea bags, most of it is loose leaf. The only weakness is on the cheese side, but there is some to be had. Had there been more cheese choice and perhaps some more exciting bread, this would have been close to an all-time high. As it is, there is a slight mark-down, but this is still an excellent 8.5/10!
