Hi Cecilia! That's a good question. Does anyone know the answer? If so, please post the answer here! ;-)

I don't know who it was, but I'm glad they did because potatoes are one of my favourite foods. Do you like them too?

In my country, Vietnam, we usually eat rice but not always rice with another food like at lunch or dinner, there is another type of rice names "xoi" and it's really richy. We usually eat "xoi" with corn, beans and peanuts. Another food for breakfast in Vietnam is "pho". Maybe you've already know about "pho" because it's very famous around the world. Just like "pho" are "bun" and "hu tieu". They are nearly like the same but their tastes are different. We also eat noodles and bread, too. There are a lot of food we eat in our breakfast, and I can't write all of it in my comment !

My, that's my hometown! I haven't tried "bun hen", but the rest of them I've already eaten. Although I'm not a food lover, I think they are very nice.

I don't really like Full English breakfast, it's to much of fried food on one plate. But I like the 'MIX of Cultures' and the way that British chefs can mykeout new food by mixing BOTH bRITISH AND OTHER TYPES OF FOOD.

Hello IBRAzlatanHIMOVIC2!
A Full English breakfast is a bit too heavy for me too, so I usually just have cereals and maybe some fruit. Much lighter and healthier! What do you usually have for breakfast in your country?Thanks for your interesting comment!
