What is the typical Chinese breakfast?

Every saturday we eat a Chinese meal and have been doing it for 15 years. We love this as it is a takeaway and the standard is excellent, but we wonder what a Chinese person might eat in Beijing for breakfast?

Chinese meals at european Chinese restaurants have nothing to do with Chinese meals in China, where you can find very different cuisines in a country of 9,6 millions of Km2.

Imagine Europe of 27 countries is still below the surface of China.
Think of the differences between Spanish cuisine and polish cuisine.

That might be true in BJ or the bigger cities.
98% of Chinese would eat noodles and dumplings for breakfast. Porridge would be more popular in the south. Most Chinese do not take milk and bread.

once again.... Just because you don't or the poor don't doesn't mean most don't. Almost every Chinese student and young person I've met eats milk for breakfast, and fried bread is very popular in both the small cities and big cities I've been in for breakfast.

My point of what I said was that Chinese don't eat just one thing for breakfast, they eat many different things.

Anyway it's a western myth that milk (and other dairy products) are good for health. They did a research in Bama, Guangzi, where the majority of the population live to 100 and above. Most of them eat fresh greens. No dairy.

Milk being healthy for your diet is not a myth. The only myth is the food pyramid for making it a must in the diet. Milk has a lot of good nutrition. But there is also a lot of alternatives to get that same kind of nutrition. Its just like how Vegetarian Body Builders find alternative foods to get rich amounts of protein like Soya Beans.

Recent studies have shown that dairy products are a major cause of cancer. Research on old people show that most of them have zero dairy products in their diets. Soy and vegetable protein work just as well, like u mentioned.

I am not an expert in nutrition.
There are increasingly more people in Europe who do not consider milk and derivatives as the only meal for kids.
We have found some cases of dermatologigal problems linked to lactose.

We think nevertheless that milk is a good solution not the only one.
It is better to consider the whole nutrition, where milk and meat should have a minor rol than today in Europe - but still a very important role - in our nutrition.

Milk can be good if it's fresh and not contaminated, the problems is not the milk, it's the hormones and chemicals we give the cows which end up in our milk as well as the way we treat teh cows which ends up putting a lot of pus and bacteria in the milk.

I rarely drink milk anymore though I do eat Cheese.

Milk is not needed though, I eat a wide variety of vegetables which gives me all the nutrients and vitamins milk would.

For breakfast, for example, you can order rice porridge (稀饭, xī fàn) or soy milk and steamed buns (包子, bāo zi)

what do they want to eat usually depend on themselves, like me, i am a chinese but i like to eat hamburger even it is just at morning, but... my grandma always tell me eating at outside is not good thing, i do not believe it at all! so you ask what do we usually eat at morning, i will say, nothing special.

There are many Breakfast choices. But basic choices are:

1. "bing" (pancake)
2. "tang" (soup)
3. "gao" (doughnut)
4. "bao" (bun)
5. "zhou" (porridge)
6. "mian" (noodles)

There are too many local varieties for this website to cover them all. But a few snapshots will give you a flavor of the enormous diversity that's available.

hard boiled eggs, noodles, rice noodles, poridge, street vendors sell bread cooked in 50 gallon drums, or a flat bread wrap.

At least that's what I saw this morning.

rice porridge (稀饭, xī fàn)

WTH is that?

Porridge is NOT 稀饭! It's ! I guess people in China DO NOT know Chinese at all! 稀 = thickened , 饭 = rice. No way is 粥 thickened!
