Breakfast in other countries

I like seeing videos of what other people in different countries eat for breakfast. I don't know that I could do a traditional Mongolian breakfast though.

In Ireland, they serve blood pudding (didn't eat it), tomatoes, baked beans, and Guinness.

In Ireland like Britain most people eat a bowl of cereal or a slice of toast for breakfast. The big breakfasts happen perhaps at the weekend and then not every weekend or if you are on holiday. Not everyone would eat them even then.

Do people still eat porridge for breakfast, R4?

by Anonymousreply 502/22/2021

My mother does, r5. Yes, I should have included porridge but I was basically saying that most people have very simple breakfasts.

I’m American through and through, but sometimes I like a bowl of miso soup for breakfast. I get these little packets of paste to add to hot water. It’s good if you’re a little hung over.

In Chile, the hotel breakfast buffets would always include sandwich fixings, and sliced of cake.

I make sandwiches for breakfast when it's too hot to cook, and why not?

I've only been to England and France outside of the US, and the simple breakfasts in Paris still are one of my favorite parts of the trip. I fell in love with clotted cream in England, but I never had a full breakfast, sadly.

The best breakfast away from the USA was in Tokyo. A cafe a few blocks from our B& B served a bowl of sticky rice topped with a Salisbury steak with cheddar cheese and a fried egg with miso soup on the side. We ate there four times. One of the most satisfying meals I’ve ever eaten.

The Turkish breakfast looks delicious. I'd LOVE to try shakshuka. The Mongolian food was different shades of white and about the only thing i'd want to try is the fried bread; however the kids were as cute as buttons. Yes, i've stayed in Paris and absolutely a croissant and coffee is not a bad way to start the day. I have to say the full English breakfast minus the blood sausage is my definite favorite...i'm more a savory breakfast person then pancakes/sweet stuff for breakfast. No cold cereal in my cupboard, but my parents were hippies and we grew up on whole/unprocessed foods. Crap like that was not allowed in our house.

OP - I always thought an internationally themed breakfast restaurant would be fun. It seems that outside of the biggest metropolitan areas, in the US, very few "ethnic" restaurants serve breakfast. When I was in DC I had breakfast at this odd little Indian cafe. The husband was South Indian and his wife was Parsi (like Freddie Mercury) and they served a mix of South Indian food and the rarer, hard to find, Parsi cuisine. They were also open for breakfast. I had this WONDERFUL, incredibly flavorful Parsi scrambled egg dish called akoori.

Desayuno Andaluz

Mollete, a soft light bread, lightly toasted, rubbed top, bottom, and sides with a garlic clove, topped with the best olive oil, crushed fresh tomato, more olive oil, then paper thin slices of jamón serrano, or, better yet, jamón ibérico de bellota.

Served with coffee and orange juice.

I stayed with a family in rural Austria once and they ate ham and cheese sandwiches for breakfast. I didn't really mind, but they always left the windows open and in August there were tons of flies, including on the food.

Breakfast food in general is one of my favorite meals (which is odd as I don't eat breakfast ie, in the morning). I would LOVE a restaurant with breakfasts from around the world.

I spent a summer in Turkey in the late 1980s, and fell in love with the breakfasts: Fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese, honey, bread, almonds and tea/coffee.

There is a Honduran restaurant not far from me, and I have their desanyuno at least once a month (scrambled eggs and chourizo, fried plantains, cheese, beans, tortillas, and crema).

Israel makes a bigger deal of breakfast than any country I've ever traveled to.

It's combination of what Americans know as traditional Eastern European Jewish food (lox, herring, sable and other smoked fish) and Middle Eastern-- hummus, shakshouka,cheeses, pita, bourekas, Israeli salad (cucumbers and tomatoes with scallions), olives, babaganoush, etc., with some Russian thrown in: caviar and blinis

Originated in the early kibbutzim where people were going to go out and work on the farm all day.

It's generally served buffet style and hotels in Tel Aviv compete to provide the most lavish breakfast spreads.

R5 Yes. I have porridge for my breakfast on a Sunday morning in winter.

R21 Yes. I have baked beans with my full English breakfast on a Saturday morning.

R26 Yes. I had kippers for tea though last night at 6pm. If you stay at a hotel in Scotland you'll probably be offered them for breakfast.
