Over 2 years since publishing Vol. 1, finally here comes the much highly anticipated (ha!) sequel.
I’ve finally gathered up enough other places to make another post. So let’s take a look at how I’ve started my day in different places!
Lu rou fan is my favorite, favorite, favorite Taiwanese breakfast! I look forward to a bowl every morning whenever I’m in Taipei (ha, I say it like it’s a common occurence, but I actually haven’t been there in 1.5 years). It’s basically chopped up braised pork belly over rice with preserved veggies and an braised tea egg. I love mixing it up with a scoop of chili paste. The flavors combine so wonderfully. This actually wins a spot in my top 5 favorite breakfasts of all time!
A kind of unpleasant breakfast, if you ask me, unless you’ve acquired a taste for nattō, or fermented soybeans. It has a pungent taste, but that’s not the worst part for me. It’s the gross sticky, slimy texture that feels like eating a mouthful of mucus. But the Japanese love it. Nattō and rice is a popular quick breakfast choice, served with a side of miso soup. I think I’ll just stick with an onigiri rice ball. :P
