Decided to switch it up this morning and get something on the “healthy” side. Not much to say about this simple breakfast though, hehe. 30,000 VND

Fried egg breakfast – Pink Tulip Hotel

Fried egg breakfast - Pink Tulip Hotel
Served with bread and Vietnamese coffee with milk. 35,000 VND
Pink Tulip Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM

The sweet hotel server asked if I wanted one side or two sides which I figured was regarding how I wanted my eggs fried. I said two sides. What I didn’t know was that the cook literally just flips the egg before plating so it was WAY over easy (too over easy for my taste). I quickly learned for the next time, hehe!

Fresh fruit and Vietnamese coffee – Pink Tulip Hotel

Dragonfruit, papaya, and watermelon.

I’m always wary of eating fresh fruit in foreign countries unless it has a peel and I’m the one who peels it myself. But our morning fruit plates were great and we never got sick from them. Phew!

Vietnamese coffee - Pink Tulip Hotel
Vietnamese coffee with milk. They also provide hot water in case the coffee is too strong for your taste.

Almost done! I love Vietnamese coffee. I always asked for regular milk instead of the condensed milk.

Omelet with cheese – Pink Tulip Hotel

So this is what Vietnam considers an omelet. OK, I can live with it. The omelet tasted pretty good, but I’m not quite sure what kind of cheese this was. It looked and tasted like Kraft American cheese singles.

Crusty bread - Pink Tulip Hotel
Amazing crusty bread. Ugh, the bread here was SO good. The exterior was flaky and crunchy, and the interior was light and airy. I didn’t want to eat SO many carbs during the trip, but I HAD to eat an entire loaf every morning. 🙂
