Top 10 Breakfasts From Around The World

Wednesday, October 24, 2012


In case you’re one of those people into so-called food porn (come on, who isn’t?), Rough Guides has compiled a list of the best breakfasts you can find around the world to fulfill your inner-most culinary desires.

Included in the list is Phô, from Vietnam, which can be a little hard getting used to for Westerners unaccustomed to steaming-hot bowls of soup at 7 a.m. (or at least eaten at 7 a.m. after waking up — not after a long night out). Also mentioned is Egypt’s stewed fava bean dish, Ful Medames (above); Lebanon’s Manouché (chewy flatbread topped with za’atar — wild thyme and oregano — and olive oil); and of course the Greek classic, yogurt and honey, the breakfast/dessert that only seems healthy when compared to the classic American diner breakfast of fried eggs and bacon.
