I miss this type of breakfast! Living in the mainland US, I miss the delicious homey taste of my japanese breakfasts :( Im from Hawaii and lived in a japanese neighborhood and this was a staple besides local foods growing up.

My mouth watered at this!! ありがろうございまう!!

In the Netherlands it is very common to eat sliced bread with all kinds of spreads on it! Common spreads are chocolate sprinkles, Nutella, peanut butter, jam, apple syrup and (obviously) cheese. I, however, prefer toast with avocado, hummus, rocket salad and tomato or anything like that. Soy yoghurt with honey and cereals is always a good idea as well. But seriously just look up ''Dutch Breakfast'' on google images and you'll be surprised by the amount of chocolate sprinkles pictures >_<.
My favorite type of breakfast by the way is Turkish breakfast!

Author uchidip ( ago)
the classic nasi lemak as breakfast of course!

Author TheBethaiable ( ago)
Nothing.. i usually only eat lunch and dinner XD Well, luxury breakfast would probably be soda if i still have some in the can from the day before. I know i'm horrible XD

Oatmeal with chia seeds and dried fruit, or if I was doing something fancy I would go with my family to a local restaurant that has lobster omelette's. They are so frickin' rich and tasty!

Author pandabearninja ( ago)
i think most japanese people just have bowl of rice with furikake and tamagoyaki and like coffee or tea
i know one of my host families everyday made 2 sunny side up eggs and buttered toast and sode dishes. and then theres cereal too. honestly i usually ate cereal or just rice with furikake.. oh often like cut up fruit. for one of my host familes they had it everyday for all meals. ive never really had miso for breakfast. maybe like once. but ive never had breakfast like you guys where you put it all on top like that. looks good

Author ASolvie ( ago)
For breakfast I eat Open faced sandwiches every single day. With either kaviar paste, cheese, brown cheese, salami, cured ham slices very thin, strawberry jam, cream cheese, canned mackerel in tomato sauce, or sliced cucumbers topped with mayonnaise.

Author Aliza Mckinnon ( ago)
Vegemite on toast or for a proper breakfast vegemite on toast with avocados with salt and pepper to taste!!!!!! Or alerts that's what I have in Australia

Author J-Horse ( ago)
I work night shifts so... what is breakfast lol. But when I do wake up early I just have dates and green tea. If we're talking luxurious breakfast... I think the most luxurious breakfast I've eaten was waffles and bacon at a friend's house... as for me personally maybe eggs?

Author Leah Eich ( ago)
Cinnamon raisin bagel with one side butter, one side cream cheese

casual breakfast varies between soy yoghurt with sliced apple/pear/banana or a slice of bread with peanut butter. Luxury breakfast (usually sundays) a soft boiled egg, salted, with a slice of bread coated with butter. After that a typical 'brötchen' -> bun with different toppings like beet syrup or jam :)

Author Emily Bryant ( ago)
I either have toast and jam with some tea or I make a smoothie

Author Benjamin Ölke ( ago)
so i have pretzels with butter and coffee which counts as a continental bavarian breakfast somewhere in the world I suppose. And if i wanna be fancy i go to the japanese guy around the corner who does a french bakery and I get either the divine lemon tarte or the decadent chocolate tarte both of which go for like 3.5 Euro I guess which doesnt sound fancy untill u see the size of the piece of cake.

a normal breakfast is leftovers and a luxury breakfast is eggs Benedict

I don't eat breakfast... soooo any breakfast is a luxury for me.

Author David Lessard ( ago)
Every meal I have : 2-ish cups cooked grains, about 2 ounces of meat or fish, maybe a cup of vegetable or vegetable dishes, and 1 fruit or equivalent for dessert.

My breakfast today was jasmine rice with tuna mayo (with some seasoning vinegar: yum!), sweet potato and a small portion of blueberry peach smoothie.

My ideal breakfast would be true short-grain japonica rice (we only have stupid calrose here), a small grilled fish, miso soup with seaweed and green onion, bitter melon and okra side-dishes, and a good ripe persimmon for dessert.

Author Alice Madness ( ago)
Try wakame goma. It is so yummy. It is like marinated seaweed salad. Goes great separetly or in sushi.

I eat cereal or nothing. I don't know what a luxurious breakfast would be. I don't really care what I eat for breakfast as long as it carries me to lunch.

Author Blep blebhebhelbhe ( ago)
lol total prep time for 7 different dishes?? if i cant make it in 20 minutes or less its not breakfast. I do NOT believe this could take one person 20 minutes to make all of that. unless part of the prep time is reheating something premade and i dont reheat lol.

Author Gum Gee ( ago)
Lol Its too much, I only take misoshiru soup with rice and tamagoyaki maybe with some veggies but its not too much, its a little in my dish.

Author TheRandomAsian ( ago)
loved the coffee part LOL

Author Sabrina Bina ( ago)
I eat sometimes a Bun with goatcheese(or hummus), salad and tomato. Or cereal with yoghurt.

For luxury breakfast I like a great smoothie and Crêpes.

Greetings from Germany. :3

I typically make a 6 egg omelette that has shredded chicken, onions, green peppers and mushrooms. I usually will have 3 sides with it. My traditional sides are 2 cups of brown rice mixed with olive oil and Himalayan salt, 4 strips of turkey bacon and 3 cups of grits mixed with lightly salted butter and cheese. Takes me about a half hours to make, primarily because I get everything out before I start cooking.

Author Bowen Fuller ( ago)
i eat water for breakfast. im trying to lose weight

Author OriginalContent89 ( ago)
I eat a single slice of toast with a bit of butter, sugar, and cinnamon purely because I have to have coffee in the morning and I don't want to drink it on an empty stomach. A luxury breakfast for me is anything that takes time to cook and then sit down and eat lol

Author Alice Tornberg ( ago)
I usually have oatmeal with organic-no-sugar-omg applesauce and milk, because ut takes like 5 minutes to make in the microwave so it's great for school mornings :3 And you stay full for a long time and that's super important to me. On weekends or when I work out in the morning I usually have quark(?) with bananas and scrambled eggs on the side to eat lots of protein☺

Author Eleanor ( ago)
I get those part-baked rolls so I can bake up fresh rolls every morning, and just have them with butter melted into them. It's dirty. But delicious.

I'm not too much of a breakfast person, but I'll occasionally eat an omelet with bacon and cheese. If not, I just sift through the fridge for whatever leftovers we may have.

Lol in college right now...don't wake up with enough time for breakfast.

Author crystal acevedo ( ago)
I eat like IHOP in my room. There's no preference. Dinner can be first or last or for snack time lol. Not healthy, but in the current living situation there's no choice. That food looks amazing and it looks so easy to make. It looks like it can be done in half an hour.

WAFFLES. I rarely get to have them but give me a pile of fresh fruit and cream on that baby and I am GOLDEN.

Late to the party, but I have been having avocado toast for breakfast. I could probably poach an egg to add to that, and have delicious egg perfection to add to creamy avocado amazeballs that is my breakfast. But, I've been making the effort because a) breakfast is good for you, and b) avocados are good for you, and c) I am not a fan of cereal because I am somewhat lactose intolerant. And you can only eat so much peanut butter toast before getting tired of it.

Author happinesss2 ( ago)
that looks reallyyyy good and healthy! I want to try it!
I really love breakfast haha. My favorite is just.. hm.. I'd say buttered english muffins with scrambled eggs. Ughh but if I go out for brunch.. salmon benedict.. omelette.. at home sometimes I just put guac on toast and egg on top.. my favorite meal is breakfast *_*
I rly want to try the Japanese one.. looks so.. satisfying! and healthy!

You need to rinse the rice a bit more using your hands unless you bought the one that you don't have to:)
It's better especially if you're making sushi rice:)

I am Mexican we have chilaquiles and quesadillas normally for breakfast 🤤

Author ana elsa ( ago)
Chilaquiles!!!! <3 (Yeah I know, Im 7 months late)
I just love my fry tortilla with salsa, but is a salsa made of garlic,sweet red pepper, you can use yellow or green pepper, it doesnt matter, with tomato, half an onion, oregano and salt/pepper, you put all of this to boiled till soft and then blend it without the water. Then you cut your tortilla and fry it and then add the everything in the pan, you can add sour cream if you want. And for te final touch, you fry an egg and put it on top of your chilaquiles before eat. And yeah... mexican breakfast style, onw of thw easiest breakfeast jajaja

No matter what time of day i wake up the first meal i eat is breakfast lol. Gotta have eggs.

Author AnOhioFlybaby ( ago)
My favorite breakfast is over easy fried eggs on top of rice or on top of a gluten-free bagel with mashed avocado or on top of leftover gluten-free pizza. If I don't have time to cook breakfast then I have an instant oatmeal that has quinoa, flax seed and I think chia in it. My idea of a luxury breakfast anymore is one that somebody else makes and just serves to me that I don't have to make myself. I know very silly very lazy. Oh and coffee, don't forget the coffee.

In India we eat Chai, Naan, and chutney often to be specific pickled carrot and cucumber btw Indian chutney is WAY different than Europeon/Asian chutney instead of the chutney being a purée it's more of just pickle veggies like the side dishes in Korea! And the specific type of naan or roti we eat it bahkri (bah-k-ah-ree) a sort of crunchy more solid version of roti. And as for gourmet breakfast we will eat a type of naan called bhatura it's like a less crunchy version of naan and instead of chutney we will eat sak (sah-k) (Indian word for curry) (btw the difference between ar roti and naan is that naan is the more fluffy flatbread-y version and roti is more light and like a tortilla)

What is the name of those pickles? Also now I am hungry, everything looks soooo good. I really need to make this for breakfast. American sometimes sucks when it comes to finding Japanese stuffs. I moved away from a Japanese mall so I need to look for an alternate to getting Japanese food stuffs.

I eat oatmeal porridge with milk, banana and berries and mix of spices. On the weekends to make it more luxurious, I eat bread different toppings such as egg, fish or cottage cheese and regular hard cheese with tea and vegetables/ sallad on the side.

Here in the Netherlands a lot of people eat bread with 'hagelslag' (chocolate sprinkles) for breakfast! It's one of the most common breakfasts here I'd say!
