The room service menu at InterContinental Hong Kong is extensive — very extensive. It covers nearly everything you can imagine and offers dishes for the health-conscious eater, too — something we absolutely loved about the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. The better-for-you offerings are listed on the ihealth menu. The breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes are lighter in calories and more health-focused with ingredients and cooking methods that aim to prevent heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and the need for antioxidants. The breakfast ihealth menu provides a selection of fresh juices and fitness drinks; low-fat yogurt with granola and dried fruits; scrambled organic eggs with veggies; and a wheat muffin. For lunch, there’s a whole-wheat pizza with salmon, cheese, leeks and yogurt and tomato sauce; seared tuna; salads; and a veggie tortilla wrap. Dinner includes salmon, organic chicken breast, whole-wheat spaghetti and more.
Then there’s the Lifestyle menu, which bundles various types of breakfasts by category — jet-lag relief, stress reduction and energy boosting. There are also options of Japanese, Chinese, continental and even a champagne and caviar breakfast. À la carte breakfast dishes include fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, omelets, eggs Benedict, pancakes, waffles and bakery items. Lunch and dinner bring burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups, pasta, hot dogs, pizza and entrées from the world kitchen, such as salmon, seabass, fish and chips, and filet mignon.
But we’re not finished. Room service also delivers items from the grill, including steak and fish dishes, and for the night owl, a late-night menu (served from midnight to 5 a.m.), which features salads, fish and chips, pad Thai, a salmon burger, sandwiches and more. Kiddies can order from the children's menu, which includes cereal and porridge for breakfast as well as sandwiches, fish and chips, chicken nuggets, hamburgers and fried rice for dinner.
Lastly, we have the desserts and beverages. Look for ice cream, a cheese platter, crème brûlée and cheesecake on the Hong Kong hotel's in-room menu. An extensive wine and beer list is also available. When we ordered room service here, we also were sent a tiny silver tray with delicious little candies for dessert — an added touch that made the whole experience that much more delicious.
