Asian Breakfast- My Favorite Meal

One of my favorite meals when going back to visit Taiwan is breakfast.  It is a meal that incorporates every single one of my favorite types of foods- dumplings, pancakes, rice, eggs and so much more.  My dad is from Hong Kong so I grew up appreciating everything about an Asian bakery and have a deep love for noodle dishes.  But after visiting Taiwan, breakfast has become one of my favorite meals.  I try to eat breakfast everyday when we are in Taiwan and have asked for any relative coming to visit us to pack breakfast with them and courier it to our house in the US.  I’m obsessed.  Here are my favorite items:

  • Fried Dumplings (Guo Tie)
  • Onion Pancakes (Cong You Bing)
  • Onion Pancakes with Egg (Cong You Bing Jia Dan)
  • Turnip Cake (Luo Bo Gao)
  • Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao)
  • Leek Pie (Jiu Cai He Zi)
  • Rice Roll (Fan Tuan) – sticky rice roll filled with fried dough, pickled vegetables and shredded pork
  • Egg Crepe (Dan Bin)
  • Soy Bean Milk & You Tiao
  • Steamed Buns
  • Steamed Dumplings – Pork & Leek
