I guess this is due to the control of the meal by the Ministry of Health and not left to the creativity of the hotel chefs (but then again it could be worse).

Another reason for having a similar dish served on a daily basis was probably is the cost factor. Having limited menu would probably make it easy for the hotel to plan their purchases and prepare the meals.
