Ask and receive Savory Bites 😀

I asked on our last cruise and they brought a plate of them every night!  I had to tell them I couldn’t eat that many!

That happened to me. I started wanting to put them in my purse to toss later. 

I love the regular rolls, too, and  couldn’t do both.

I love savory bites.   Didn't see any on my last cruise--should have asked.......

Same here.  Don't know why they are not standard as part of the bread basket.  I loved when the asst. waiter brought the many varieties of breads to choose.

Never understood what placing a key on your big toe has to do with eating bread? :classic_unsure:

Ohh that's one of my favorite things about cruising! Thank you for letting me know they need to be requested. I'll ask before our first dinner so I have then ready😁

Mmmmm

Have been eating them for years, don't know why but I really like them. That being said I requested them on Brillance transatlantic last month and they were a different animal. What they brought were not the old savory bites, but some cheap knock off. They had sesame seeds on them and not poppy seeds, also made out of a different dough. Not the same after a couple nite told waiter never mind, he tried though.

My wife loves them!  She'd be in hog heaven with a plate that full. Me?  Give me a sourdough roll any day and let me soak up the garlic butter from the Escargot!  

Marinara sauce..... yummmmmmmm.

Ok. I’ll bite.   What are savory bites ?        RC virgin.   

Mass of poppy seeds with a little bread in the middle.  Nothing special but wildly popular in the cruise critic world.

Well I take that back.  I cheated last Sunday and ate three pieces of thin crust pizza.      First "bread" I have had in 9 months

That's the way I feel about the roast beef sandwiches everyone goes nuts over.  What"s the big deal?  Not that great.

I get double meat and horseradish sauce and sit on the balcony and am in heaven.

They used to be standard. That way you could eat a couple and then a sunflower seed roll.

Try the savory bites with the escargot butter.  Great.

Your opinion.  I'd much rather have a couple of savory bites than one of the big, bready rolls in the bread basket.

A bread basket will usually be full of "bready rolls".

 for me, it reminds me of home and I just can't get anything decent down here anywhere.   as for savory bites, we prefer the sourdough rolls.  or the onion

I thought it looked like a plate of burnt roasted potatoes. Oops!
Well roasted potatoes was my first thought as well, and actually sound more so appetizing than anything with poppy seeds.

Isn’t that what the sourdough rolls are made for?  😂

Next week is my first cruise on Royal and I'm so looking forward to a beef on weck. Cant get one anywhere near where I live. One of the foods I miss the most from Buffalo.

  it'll give you nostalgia, but if you are used to the real thing it won't be  life changing.  sometimes the roll isn't quite right.

savory bites are just bagels cut up. Read it here, confirmed on board a few years ago. They are just ok. I love the breads they serve at dinner so much more.
