Breakfast Ideas Asian. Breakfast in China or some Asian countries are far different from what Westerners are accustomed to. They really don’t rely on the toaster because they don’t eat bread that much. In fact, non-Asian people are more likely to suffer culture shock after seeing all the foods that are available in China during the wee hours of the morning.
Sure, you’ve probably eaten a few dishes from your nearest Chinese restaurant, but the food that is served there has already been enhanced with a few spices that American taste buds are used to, so you are not exactly eating authentic Chinese food when you go to these places.

What is great about Chinese dishes is that you are free to mix and match certain foods according to your taste, and there is never a wrong way of doing so. After all, they believe food is a blessing one must enjoy to the fullest, and this is exactly the reason why so many of them eat as much breakfast as they can.
