Nutritionists agree that a wholesome breakfast is one of the best gifts you can give your body to begin the day with strength and clarity. Coinciding with World Health Day on 7 April, Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, Gateway Hotel and Prince Hotel have created a signature ‘eat-as-you-go’ takeaway Bircher Muesli Breakfast for those on the run. Our homemade Bircher Muesli is jam-packed with nutrition and fiber, ensuring a healthy start to the day.
Originating in Switzerland, Bircher Muesli was created in 1900 by a physician named Maximilian Bircher-Benner. He wanted to design a dietary meal for his patients containing a balanced mix of raw vegetables, dried fruits, nuts and whole grains. Native Swiss Chef Rolf Jaeggi, Group Executive Chef of Marco Polo Hotels has enhanced the traditional Bircher Muesli recipe, incorporating his own special blend of tempting ingredients, such as organic oats from Australia, green apple, raisins, orange, banana, mixed berries, pecan nuts, walnuts and hazelnuts, topped with plain yoghurt, milk, honey, orange juice, or even whipped cream for those who fancy an extra indulgence. Every irresistible bite is bursting with fresh flavours and a delicious blend of crunchy and creamy textures.
“The three Marco Polo Hotels in Hong Kong are part of Harbour City – Hong Kong’s largest shopping complex and are surrounded by many offices,” says Chef Rolf. “Hong Kong is a fast-paced city where busy executives aren’t always able to priorities healthy and balanced eating habits. I have designed this tasty Signature Bircher Muesli in a takeaway cup, providing a wholesome and convenient choice for breakfast in the morning or a healthy snack throughout the day.”
“The health benefits of muesli are well documented. It can help improve the immune system, lower cholesterol levels and stabilise high blood pressure. Fresh fruits, nuts and seeds add rich sources of Vitamin C and B, calcium and protein that will keep you feeling satisfied between meals. Bircher Muesli is also an ideal meal substitute for weight loss and encourages healthy skin and nails,” Chef Rolf continues.
Marco Polo’s Signature Bircher Muesli is available in handy takeaway cups from the Lobby Lounge at Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, priced at $68* per serve. It is also offered on the breakfast buffets at the following outlets:
