People Debate Which Nation Makes The Best Breakfast

Let the battle of the breakfasts begin!

After Redditor thesaint2000 asked the online community, "For people who travel to different nations which nation does breakfast the best?" people were quick to duke it out.

I'm not much of a (U.S.) breakfast person myself but I admit I am just as in love with the full English breakfast as I am a lovely Greek one. Whether it's sausages or black pudding or even fruit or yogurt, just give it to me!

Those of you with a hankering for good breakfast food better get your plane tickets ready.


"Delicious."

Costa Rica. Black beans, rice, scrambled eggs, potatoes, fried plantains, pineapple and other fruits. Delicious.

"There's a kind of crepes..."

Thailand. There's a kind of crepes made on the street, fried with coconut oil, with various toppings, savoury like egg or sweet like mango, and you can combine them. My favourite is a crepe with mango sprinkled with cinnamon. Tasty, cheap, filling.

"Seriously..."

Sri Lanka! String hoppers, pol sambol, some coconut curry gravy, maybe an egg hopper or two... BOOM. Seriously Sri Lankan breakfasts make that crazy island worth a visit on their own.

"I love any excuse..."

I'm not a breakfast person but I was very well fed in Israel and Jordan. I love any excuse for hummus and pita and shakshuka. Oh and Turkey has great food too so maybe Mediterranean/Levant area breakfasts win for me.

"I'm a Swede who has traveled quite a lot..."

I'm a Swede who has traveled quite a lot both for business and pleasure. I've been all over the globe many times.

The US does breakfast best, by far. BY FAR.

Best full English i ever had? In the US. Best eggs Benedict? In the US. Best avocado toast? In the US. Best huevos rancheros? Best salmon bagel? Best muesli? Best egg and bacon sandwich? You guessed it... the US.

You're not half bad at food in general. Not the best by far but not bad. But breakfast? No other country comes even close. I've been all over the states, and let me say there is only one place i really dislike... Las Vegas. But Vegas has one redeeming quality. The Cosmopolitan breakfast buffét.

"Start your day off..."

America: Fried Chicken and Waffles for breakfast. Start your day off with a nap immediately after breakfast.

"I explain to myself..."

Vietnam. Nothing beats breakfast pho or com tam for me (later is a bit lighter imo)

Surely it's partly down to what you grow up with. A classmate once was disgusted by me because she thought I brought kebab to school. I didn't, but I also didn't get what was her problem. While a sweet light breakfast is fine, my mouth really is watering over savory stuff. So naturally I love love love english breakfast (except for the sausage. sorry, as someone growing up in Germany, i just cant)

I explain to myself this way that my taste buds and preferences are designed by my upbringing, but it might have been as well the genetics that determine who we am and what we like to eat.

Honorable mention to Turkish breakfast at a hostel in Izmir hostel for the first time. Light and fresh (vegetarian). Since then, I occasionally go to Turkish restaurants just to try different breakfasts. Yum!

"We have a place in town..."

I am a fan of the Mexican breakfast. We have a place in town that serves an incredible meal. This local place serves what it calls the enchilada casserole. Three layers of tortillas topped with barbacoa and cheese on each of the layers. Topped with two eggs and huevo ranchero sauce and cream. Side of beans and rice.

"It was such a variety..."

Greece! Real yogurt with honey, fruit, wonderful pastries and breads. It was such a variety, I never felt like I missed any food groups.

"I stayed at a really nice little hotel..."

Czech Republic. I stayed at a really nice little hotel right at the foot of Prague Castle. Every morning they would serve the most amazing breakfast with quite possibly the best soup I have ever had. It was a mushroom soup with fresh dill and a perfectly poached egg. I've been chasing the perfect kulajda recipe ever since.

June is a happy and exciting month for the LGBTQ+ community, being Pride Month.

Where people can proudly celebrate who they are and who they love.

And the crowds at these events seem to only grow bigger every year, as more and more LGBTQ+ allies also partake in the celebration.

Some of these allies might be late to the party, as it were, owing to the fact that they once held homophobic views, and only recently became more educated and changed their minds.

Redditor aestheticbear was curious what exactly it was that led former homophobes to change their previous views, leading them to ask:

"Former homophobic people of Reddit: what happened that made you stop being homophobic?"

Everyone has unusual phobias.

Things which they simply can't bear the sight of, and are forced to turn away when they find themselves in the presence of it.

More often than not, these things are usually habits or behaviors which one normally wouldn't do in polite society.

But, have you ever been repulsed by something that the majority of people might consider "normal"?

Something that's just an everyday occurrence in life?

Redditor Allthelights011 was curious to learn what "normal" things fellow Reddit users were disgusted by, leading them to ask:

"What’s a completely normal thing you find disgusting?"

People Break Down The Best 'Don't Knock It Until You Try It' Experiences

Chances are, you've been told to try new things ever since you were a little kid. I know I was.

Sometimes, certain activities or experiences seem crazy, and you don't even want to give them a chance.

This could be true of some things. For example, there is no reason to ingest tide pods.

Sometimes an activity or experience that seems crazy only seems that way because you haven't tried it yet.

I thought nothing good could come of mixing buttery popcorn with Swedish Fish, but now it's my favorite snack!

Redditor TheUnthinkableVids wanted to know about other things that seem crazy, but should be given a chance.

He asked:

"What’s a “don’t knock it till you try it” experience that you would weirdly recommend?"
