I have to admit, I dig any place where you can have dim sum and pan fried noodles for breakfast any day of the week and pork and shrimp dumplings in noodle soup is available 24 hours a day from room service. The Sofitel has an impressive breakfast buffet that runs the gamut from French pastries to satay. There is only the one restaurant and itâ€™ll run you about twenty bucks. But no one will stop you from sitting for hours and drinking tea or coffee (self-serve) and nibbling on baked goods and made-to-order omelets and homemade yogurt with granola.Â
