    Is this the worst ‘farang breakfast’ in all of Thailand?

    Is this the worse breakfast in all of Thailand



    They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there is no better way to start the day than with a cooked breakfast.
    But photos shared by an expat in Thailand may make you question that
    Earlier this week, photos of a truly shocking attempt at a cooked breakfast were shared to a popular expat Facebook group.
    Now normally the Breakfast Club Pattaya Facebookgroup is filled with photos of tasty breakfasts from some of the best spots around Pattaya.
    But the breakfast in these particular photos is so bad, it could quite honestly put you off breakfast for good!
    The story goes that Ian McCully who shared the photos, asked for a veggie breakfast and you can only imagine his horror and disappointment when this turned up at his table.
    On the plate were two eggs that looked like they had been cooking for days, alongside some sliced tomatoes.

    Bizarrely, the plate also contained cauliflower, carrots and baby sweetcorn.
    The only highlight of the plate was the checkered pattern which decorated two slices of toast.
    The state of the eggs was summed up by D’Wayne Midson who commented: “What did they cook the eggs with? A flame thrower?”
    “Who doesn’t love a bit of boiled cauliflower for breakfast. Love the caramelisation on the eggs as well”, wrote Rory Lawlor.
    “As a general rule I think if you can pick your eggs up and slap your waitress in the face with them they are probably no good”, he added

    While Daniel Paul wrote: “Those eggs delivered straight from hell”.
    It isn’t known exactly where this offending breakfast was concocted but it is believed to be somewhere in the Yasothorn area of Thailand.
    Top tip – if you’re staying in rural Thailand and the place you’re eating at has ‘farang food’ on the menu, nine times out of ten you are better taking the Thai food option – especially at breakfast.
    The only exception to this rule being the ‘American Breakfast’, which in Thailand is best avoided, especially those funky little sausages.

    if one is stuck out in the sticks with the bugmunchers in tinyville, then the best option for breakfast is oliang coffee and patongo, usually available on most street corners for a few baht from 5am to 10am.

    thai outfits rarely do a decent western breakfast. the eggs and meats will probably have been cooked hours ago and will almost certainly be stone cold, the bread used for the toast will have been bought in a 7/11 and the miniscule amount of butter supplied will be frozen solid.

    the less said about the orange juice and tea, the better

    under these circumstances it is better to swallow ones pride and go native.

    I accidently ordered a veggie breakfast a few years ago when at the caravan park down in Cornwall, the Quorn sausages were actually surprisingly quite tasty. Just thought I'd add this pointless post to the thread.

    Rice soup with all the meats and lots of condiments, heaps of dried chilli.

    Place along the river in Nakhon Phanom has a queue from 8am. Even more on weekends when people with hangovers turn up.

    Someone told me it's in the top 10 best kao tom places in Isaan.

    probably.

    even some of the british and irish pubs are guilty of the toast deception and butter faux pas, especially when the farang owner has gone awol for a day or two and left things in the hands of his local employees.

    What's your favourite Thai breakfast, snubby?

    Would it be jok, khao tom, khao gaeng, kuay teaw, or maybe heading to one of the western places off Suk for a full fry up.

    Given your regularity on here, you must know all the best places within spitting distance of the Nana Hotel.
