Tavola 36 – Swissotel Nankai, Osaka

Breakfast in hotels are usually not my thing. I would prefer to visit cafes nearby or buy confectionery the night before as breakfast the next morning. This time round somehow we thought we had booked a room without breakfast but was told by the hotel during check-in that it was included.

The hotel’s breakfast is served on the 36th storey offering an unblocked view of Osaka city, hence beside enjoying breakfast, we were happy to be there to take in the views.

A spread of international and Japanese cuisines. Obviously I went for the Jap items. The pickled items were refreshing and appetizing, a staple of their breakfast – for them to wash down with plain porridge. Jap breakfast are typically rather light and seems healthier than the pancakes/waffles/fried eggs/bacon.

Most of the seats were situated along the window facade where guests could take in the stunning views. Although unfortunately on both occasions we were assigned seats on the same side of our hotel room, so the views are about the same. The skyscraper towering above all is Japan‘s tallest building at 300m – Abeno Harukas (あべのハルカス).

From the night view, another icon of Osaka is more visible – Tsūtenkaku Tower.

After our meal, we walked over to the other side of the restaurant just to take in the view which oversees the Dotonburi area. Many people would have recognised the Don Quixote Ferris Wheel.
