Weekly Photo Challenge: Breakfast

This is a typical Filipino breakfast: fried rice, scrambled eggs, smoked fish (tinapa) and diced tomatoes sprinkled with salt. Can you say ‘sodium overdose’?

We obviously can’t help it, though. It’s that good. πŸ˜‰

  1. I’ve seen more and more of these photo challenge posts on various blogs? I was wondering if you could tell me what they’re all about πŸ™‚

    Nice Blog πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

    • Itlog maalat! In our house, we now buy only a few of it at a time because it’s one of those things so good we want to have it every day but so bad for us that we know we shouldn’t. πŸ˜€

  2. That looks and sounds scrumptious… I donΒ΄t know if *I* would eat that for breakfast, I guess it would take some getting used to,,, but I could try if you ever invite me over! πŸ˜€

    IΒ΄m here, you canΒ΄t see me, but IΒ΄m here…. hehe

    Cheers from CΓ³rdoba! (Arg.)

    • I just got asked to moderate your comment. Your comment! Hah. πŸ˜€
      I had no idea that we seem to be unique in the fish-for-breakfast thing. I have to do some research on that…
      It’s summer in Argie, right? Enjoy!

      • Well, the English eat sometimes kippers for breakfast – but I donΒ΄t think itΒ΄s a regular thing across the country…
        Well…., no, actually itΒ΄s still spring here in Arg., but to my Dutchified self it feels like a very warm summer! (35Β°+)
        Enjoy your breakfast!!

    • Thanks!
      Our breakfasts are indeed completely different. The sweetest I can have during breakfast is coffee with two teaspoons of sugar. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh my… I miss my Pinoy breakfast SILOGs… shall I call this TINKAMSILOG (tinapa-kamatis-sinangag and itlog)! I love this combination, unfortunately, smoked fish is very seldom here in abu dhabi. Cheers!

  4. You know what’s interesting? How similar some breakfasts are. Here in the US eggs are regular breakfast fare, as are cereal grains (rice) though not usually fried. Most people eat processed cereal. Still plenty of sodium to go around! Oh yeah, and we tend to eat pork instead of fish.

    • I guess the difference is in how hearty we make them and the time we spend eating them. I myself don’t like being rushed at breakfast: Best meal of the day for me. πŸ™‚

  5. ate boods, try mo na ang sidedish ng tinapa eh sliced kamias + minced red onion + chopped tomatoes + chopped salted egg + crumbled chicharon πŸ™‚ tapos luto ka rin ng spicy pancit canton to go with it. solb!!!!

  6. Everything looks wonderful and I love the *Burp* photo. I think I would have to work up to the fish for breakfast but I have no doubt that a bite of fish, a bite of eggs, a bite of fried rice-repeat and I would be lovin’ it in no time. Add a little Mush and wah-lah.

  7. Kasiram! I miss all the breakfast -silogs. I wish McDonald’s here would offer the same breakfast meals they have in the Philippines πŸ™‚
