Recently, I asked myself if I should or not publish a certain unidentified breakfast.
You see, when you have a noodle soup in Asia, bacon and eggs in US or bread and jam in France, you don’t really think about it and suppose that your not wrong if you call those breakfasts “traditional”, point them out on the map, add nice pictures ….. Ok published.
Now, what if the breakfast is an unidentified eating object ? Or what if you get the feeling that it could be from anywhere in the world ? Those questions raised with this case :
An omelet. Seen in US and in UK. In Mauritius ? I would have said that this is a touristy breakfast. I then found out that Mauritius is the 7th country in the world in term of egg consumption. Funny hé (the 1st being Mexico) And that my friend had eaten this breakfast in a hotel chain in Mauritius.
Like the banana crepes seen in Thailand and Indonesia… Have they traveled from France or US to Asia with tourists or are they a slight variation of local crepes …?
I would say that small banana crepes, fruit salad, orange juice and French toasts are nowadays traditional international shared breakfasts. A reference and a way to reassure oneself anywhere in the world.
