Who doesn’t want to travel the entire world and enjoy the mouth-watering cuisines of different countries? Are you also interested in the types of meals that are presented around the world? What do people eat for dinner in France? Do Sri Lankans also consume rice the way we do? What does breakfast look like outside of India? Do these questions keep coming to your mind too?


Let’s dig right into it and have a look at what the world is eating.


Breakfast in this island nation in East Asia is unlike anything you will ever experience! Sticky rice, grilled fish, miso soup, natto, and tamagoyaki are all common morning foods in Japan. Although we Indians are accustomed to eating rice on a daily basis, seeing it served for breakfast can be extremely perplexing. Natto is fermented soybeans, and tamagoyaki is a rolled egg dish from Japan. These dishes are eaten as a meal.


Ever since the release of the Bollywood superhit Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, this European nation has been on everyone's travel wish list! When it comes to cuisine, Spain has a rich cultural and historical background. Spain is one of the numerous European nations that enjoy a sugary breakfast. Although they also serve savory breakfast items, their traditional breakfast is a plateful of warm and crispy churros, chocolate sauce, and milk coffee.


Croissants are a French morning staple and are another delicious breakfast on this list! The French love to have a short and easy breakfast, frequently accompanied by a strong cup of coffee. Indulgence in pain au chocolat, which is essentially a chocolate croissant, is also common, although it's reserved for the weekends.


A true Italian breakfast requires coffee! In reality, Italians are renowned for their fine coffee. They also enjoy having their sweet breakfast, particularly a sweet pastry like cornetti, with their morning coffee. There is a twist, though. Actually, cornetti is an Italian croissant. They also enjoy eating biscotti with their coffee.


Turkish cuisine is a very elaborate affair, with elements of Mediterranean, Ottoman, Middle Eastern, and East European cuisines. Turkish culture considers even breakfast to be a feast! Various kinds of cheese, marinated olives, jams and spreads, Turkish bread (simit), eggs, and Turkish sausages make up the breakfast (sucuk, basturma). Breakfast requires tea as well, but not the milk tea that we Indians are accustomed to.

South Korea

These days, Korean culture is quite popular! We are all K-Pop music enthusiasts and K-Drama junkies. It just increases our interest in Korean food! Even though we are now fairly familiar with Korean cuisine, we are still unsure of what Koreans typically eat for breakfast. Kimchi stew, Korean eggs, kimchi eggs, Korean egg rolls, and abalone porridge are typical Korean breakfast foods.


We are all generally familiar with American breakfast thanks to American television. Even many of us have tried popular American breakfast dishes! Fried bacon, hash browns, waffles, pancakes, and scrambled eggs make up a typical breakfast. While not always enjoyed in tandem, the dishes that make up an American breakfast—bacon and eggs, eggs and hash browns, etc.—can be quite hefty and decadent.


Mexican food is significantly distinct from American cuisine, despite the fact that this nation is in North America! Tacos, burritos, and nachos are known to us, but we don't really know what a Mexican breakfast looks like. Huevos rancheros, which are fried eggs eaten with corn tortillas and salsa, are the name of the typical morning dish in Mexico.


Although we have all heard of the full English breakfast, we don't truly understand what it entails. This lavish breakfast, which includes baked beans, English sausages, roasted tomatoes, black pudding, sunny-side-up eggs, bacon, and bread, is typically enjoyed on the weekends. All of these dishes are consumed together because this is regarded as a complete meal.


Thailand is a popular travel destination that is on many people's bucket lists. Thai cuisine delicacies like Pad Thai, Som Tam salad, and Thai curry are well known to us, but we are still unsure of what a Thai breakfast looks like. Thai breakfast is typically composed of items like rice congee (jook), grilled pork, doughnuts made in the country, omelets with rice, and chicken rice.
