A look at breakfast from around the world
Pass the syrup
For Americans, breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day. With hearty pancakes, large portions of eggs, and cereal that more closely resembles dessert than anything else, when the sun comes up, we fill up on food. Taking a trip around the globe, you may be surprised what ends up on people's breakfast plates. Originally reported by Buzzfeed, here is a look at how other countries make their morning meal.
Dumplings, rice in vegetable soup, fried sponge cake, steamed creamy custard bun, and porridge.
Sweet black tea, bread, butter, feta cheese, and sometimes fresh fruit and nuts.
Tea, coffee, or juice, with bread and butter or pastries.
Rice, fish, miso soup, sticky soybeans, and nori seaweed.
