Not exactly the kind of guy who is into In-Room dining, I had contemplated over ordering before but never got myself to do so. Sure, I once was tempted by Holiday Inn Bangkok’s wealth of offerings available even in the wee hours of the night but late night dining doesn’t seem like a good idea.
This was not the case in my visit to Taiwan, I was famished and haven’t found any good place to dine. I haven’t discovered the beauty of 7-Eleven then (yes, they have awesome 7-Eleven!) so I’m forced to look up the restaurant’s late night menu.
*Note : That’s just half of my room.
Being a luxurious hotel, I thought the Evergreen Laurel Hotel in Taipei would make me go around in circles deciding on what to dine for the night but to my surprise I see only 4 items are available for late night dining, 2 of them are sandwiches and 2 of them are porridge – guess which one I went for?
I ordered Club Sandwich that’s about 330 NT (approx MYR 33) and I was blown away when the food came, and this isn’t a title for a click bait article.
The food was delivered in barely 15 minutes and What laid before me was the finest Club Sandwich ever crafted, each layer so delicately assembled that it was not only perfect for a non-messy feast but also perfect for a photo session. I love how they melted the cheese instead of the commonly seen lazy job of “Here’s ya cheese!” method of piecing a club sandwich. The ham and the chicken slices were sliced in absolute perfection, blending in with the pieces of vegetable that makes the entire sandwich so beautiful you just don’t feel like eating it.
I was literally suffering the torment of the aroma as I impatiently get the shots, the sandwich was calling out for me! Sandwich aside, the club sandwich came with a small set of salad.
And also a set of chips.
The experience was literally a conversion experience – In-Room Dining was once I never bothered, now it’s something that I do consider on my hotel visits. 🙂
Never try, never know.
