What Does the World Eat for Breakfast?
You'll have to agree that there's nothing like a big fat home-style breakfast. Whether it's a nice sit-down meal, on-the-go grub, eggs-for-sure, to toast or not to toast - we cook up our very own breakfast norms. As you walk across geographical boundaries, the breakfast table has something new to offer. Breakfast is, undoubtedly, the star meal of the day and often the forgotten one too. Salivate over these traditional morning meals from around the world.

Full English Breakfast
An old school fry-up complete with bacon, sausages, baked beans, buttered toasts, tomatoes and fried mushrooms!

Italian Mama Mia
A steaming cuppa caffè e latte or cappuccino says it all. Bread rolls, biscotti, pastries and fresh fruits also adorn the breakfast table. Cappuccino e Cornetto is a typical café breakfast - a sweet croissant dipped in coffee is the norm. Elegant enough!

Macho Australian
Every Australian can vouch for the epic taste of vegemite. What's not to love about it? This dark brown sandwich spread can turn around any meal.

Good Ol' Americano
Fluffy blueberry pancakes dressed with maple syrup and bacon rashers on the side are all the rage.

A La French
French chefs are croissant connoisseurs. Buttered, chocolate or jam filled, cinnamon-scented, cheesy, studded with nuts and many more. Mmm...

Japanese Samurai
The traditional Japanese breakfast platter speaks of their love for precision. A well-rounded spread with steamed rice, miso soup, pickles (tsukemono and umeboshi), raw egg poured over rice, sheets of dried seaweed called nori, grilled fish and not to miss the Japanese green tea.

German All the Way!
A legendary variety of local cheese, cold cuts like ham and salami, eggs, jams or marmalade and bread - that's a German breakfast buffet for you. For all those committed carnivores, the Bratwurst sausages made with veal, pork or beef come close to heaven.

Israel - A Princely Affaire
With an Israeli breakfast you'll discover variety like never before. Surprisingly simple flavours come together to make a lavish meal that can last you the whole day. Mediterranean dips, Israeli vegetable salad, labane (yogurt cheese) and of course shakshuka highlight the menu. Shakshuka is a delicate dish of eggs poached in a fierce tomato sauce, served with rustic breads to mop up the flavours.

The Legendary Parsi Meal
Parsis will tell you - 'When in doubt, break an egg'. Eggs (edu) have garnered quite a reputation as a preferred breakfast ingredient with classic recipes like akuri (spicy scrambled eggs) and Sali par eedu (Half-fry with potato straws) that render the old-world charm. A hot cup of tea with brun maska (buttered buns) is some of the simplest pleasures in life.

Yalla! Egypt
The glory of an eclectic Egyptian breakfast will compel you to rise and shine. Ful medames is the quintessential morning meal in Egypt and Sudan which is made with mashed fava beans, chickpeas, garlic, coriander and lime. The lively breakfast bowl is rounded out with boiled eggs, fresh veggies and tahini sauce.
