What Makes Nobu's Breakfast Service Unique

For guests staying in Nobu's Palo Alto Hotel, you're transformed into the world of chic-Japanese aesthetics mixed with California vibes from check-in to check-out, according to Cultured Mag. From the lychee mocktail greeting in the reception area, the Ryokan-inspired room designed by the Los Angeles-based Montalba Architects, or even their breakfast service for hotel guests in the morning.

While Nobu hotels and restaurants are world-renowned, Nobu's claim to fame began as a partnership between Chef Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa and his partner Robert De Niro. They opened their first fine-dining restaurant location in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood in 1994. Since then, Nobu has opened 58 restaurants worldwide, including in Los Cabos, Sydney, and even Kuala Lumpur. So when it comes to food — Nobu surely knows what it's doing.

So how does Nobu's expertise in fine-dining Japanese cuisine, paired with cooking knowledge of Peruvian and Argentinian flare (according to Forbes), translate into breakfast cuisine? It does so with a twist!

How does caviar for breakfast sound?

Step aside traditional eggs Benedict or hotel-style waffle bar — Nobu is upping their game when serving a fine-dining breakfast experience. For Nobu Palo Alto, guests are welcome to flavor combinations you won't find on any other breakfast menu.

Some unique dishes featured on Nobu Palo Alto's breakfast menu include 48-hour braised short rib "steak and eggs," a caviar hot pot served alongside crispy mushrooms and scallions, Jidori Chicken, and Waffles. For something sweet, Nobu does not disappoint with menu items like blueberry yuzu pancakes or kaya toast. According to the New York Times, kaya toast features kaya jam that mixes pandan, coconut milk, sugar, and eggs. Then, the most expensive dish on the menu is the Japanese breakfast bento with umami sea bass. This dish pairs together multiple small dishes alongside sea bass, including rice and fruit, to round out a healthy breakfast.

Along with Nobu Palo Alto, many other Nobu hotels offer breakfast perks for guests. According to CNTraveler, in Nobu Chicago, hotel guests can enjoy dishes like salmon egg donburi from the comforts of their room.
