I still stand by what I said here. When it comes to food, the Frenchies know what they are doing. But... we did find a very close runner-up in the Philippines and again, it seems the key to an outstanding breakfast is, simplicity. Bread and butter. Bake it fresh, slice it thick, toast it ever so slightly, and smother it with soft. delicious. thigh-fattening. chin doubling. golden. butter.
Wash it down with strong coffee (though admittedly it would have been better with frothed milk). Start the day happy.
