I would never deliberately pay for breakfast buffet since I always eat a simple and boring breakfast and all the choices would simply overwhelm me and tempt me beyond reason. But since buffet breakfast at Shangri-La Boracay’s Vintana restaurant was included with the room I might as well enjoy myself.
The small shots of mango lychee juice on ice welcomed diners at the entrance of Vintana restaurant.
If I thought Discovery Shores had lots of breakfast offerings well I was simply blown away by the volume and assortment at Vintana. There was probably 2-3x more food.
Yes, yes I had the muesli again. It was good but not as good as my all time favorite muesli at Hong Kong Disneyland hotel. I wish they had more dried fruit choices instead of just granola and nuts. I should have cut up some fresh fruit to add to my muesli.
The cheese croissant was yummy but even better was their coconut croissant which had a sweet, sticky coconut filling that reminded me of pan de coco. Genius! The danggit (dried fish) was very disappointing. It was hard and chewy and not crispy as I liked it. It probably because of it’s huge size.
The crab cake was made with 80% mashed potato and 20% fresh crab meat. Our crab meat is so fine it won’t support the shape with just a little binder like breadcrumbs the way American crab cakes are made.

Unbelievable but the second day the food was all different. I couldn’t handle more choices so I stuck with my usual muesli and sausage with a bit of beef tapa. Told you my breakfast choices were boring.

If you can eat a lot and love breakfast then the breakfast buffet at Shangri-La Boracay is for you. Some may say just the breakfast buffet will sway them to choose this hotel over the others.
The price of our room at Shangri-La and Discovery Shores was about the same. You’ve seen the pictures of the hotel, rooms and breakfast buffet for both hotels. Where would you choose to stay in Boracay? Let me know in the comment box below. I’d love to hear your opinions.
