Breakfast is the most important meal of the day not just because you need it to get your day started but also to get your taste buds sparkling. This doesn’t just kick start your day but starts it on a happy note which is important in our everyday busy lives. However, there is more to breakfast than our everyday toast and cereal.
The beauty of food is that there are no limits to dishes and tastes with over 200 countries worldwide that have different cultures and traditions. Sure, everyone’s taste palette is different but you never know until you try some unique dishes from around the world. Plus, it doesn’t really matter what time of the day it is as long as the food is great. I would enjoy pancakes for dinner if they are to die for.
So, it doesn’t matter if it’s a croissant or steak and eggs, or even Dosa from India. It’s a great experience when different cultures interpret with each other. You can call your Mexican friend to a breakfast burrito fest.

The picture says it all. A breakfast fit for a king, queen, prince and couple of princesses. Mushrooms, eggs, toast, waffles, beans and sausages.

To compliment this killer meal, there is lassi which is the ultimate yogurt-based drink to cool you off.
Sure, Colombian coffee is more than enough to slap wake you up in the morning but why not go all Colombian for a day. Try making Calentado with Cheese stuffed Arepas which basically a spicy rice and bean dish with arepas, sunny side eggs and Avacado.
