Some international students I’ve met tell me they’ve a hard time getting used to eating Chinese food for breakfast – I can tell you I have no problem adjusting to this myself. The other day I got out of bed a bit late and was extremely hungry. I went to this tiny little restaurant and asked what they recommended. This is how I ended up having a steaming hot bowl of beef noodle soup 牛肉面 as my breakfast.
But a thing I end up getting almost every single morning is a steamed bun filled with meat – 包子. These breads don’t even cost €0.20 and are totally awesome. I prefer mine filled with pork or beef, but they also sell it with veggies, somethings that looks like thin glass noodles, chicken, tofu or other things that I cannot understand in Chinese.
