8 Typical Breakfasts Around the World

8. Thailand

In Thailand, a typical breakfast isn’t all that different from any other meal of the day — Thais typically eat rice, noodle soups, fried meats, and omelettes. One dish usually reserved for breakfast is chok, a rice porridge similar to rice congee.

I miss a traditional Jordanian breakfast: a bowl of hot fuul (boiled broad/fava beans mashed with lemon juice, olive oil and chopped chillis), mopped up with fresh-baked khubez (flat bread). Hummus, a cold dip of boiled chickpeas blended with lemon juice, garlic, sesame and olive oil, is lighter. Also savoury pastries, including khubez bayd (a kind of small egg pizza) and bite-sized pastry triangles (ftayer) filled with cheese (jibneh), spinach (sabanekh), potato (batata) or meat (lahmeh). Larger bakeries also have chunky breadsticks, sesame-seed bread rings (kaak), thick slabs of crunchy toast (garshella) and rough brown bread (khubez baladi). Along with some olives (zaytoon) and runny yoghurt (laban) or creamy yoghurt (labneh). (Taken from Rough Guide to Jordan)

over here in the uk, breakfast can consist of toast and preserves/butter etc, beans/egg/cheese on toast, cereal, a 'full english' or leftovers from last night's dinner!

Nice insight into what others eat. I'm indian and we do eat a lot of rice based breakfasts. I love Idlis which are steamed rice flour cakes (just a touch of salt, no sugar) and are eaten with fresh chutneys made of grams or nuts with fresh herbs, chilli and garlic. Other popular breakfast dishes made of rice are Dosa - a savoury crepe again served with chutneys; beaten rice or puffed rice cooked with onions, chillies, herbs.

A variety of colourful and tasty breakfast choices offered, have tried almost anything for breakfast from a combination of fruits, hummus and crackers, chicken, steak with veggies, eggs, cheese, bagels, hearty home made soup, grains to name but a few. Fascinating exotic items from abroad!

Breakfast is what suits you but hopefully one has time to prepare it as it is a very important meal which fuels you til lunch. Sometimes for those on the go it means preparing it the night before instead of rushing out the door with next to nothing or even worse, nothing.

There could have been several photos on the same page but I guess the more pages brings in more advertising. For some the wait for things to load gets bothersome especially when it is over five pages.
