perfect breakfast philippine-style

you recently posted the perfect continental breakfast (well, on second thought, not too perfect because i was looking for more butter, syrup and scrambled eggs, remember?). the pinoy counterpart of that perfect breakfast is shown above: rice drenched in fresh carabao’s milk (with the buttermilk film, the cheesy-looking stuff, shown here) with a fried tuyo (dried herring). enough said.

    where's the kamatis (tomato) for the tuyo? ๐Ÿ˜€ BTW, the breakfast i posted is much heartier than a continental breakfast ๐Ÿ˜› i think it's called “hungry man's breakfast” on some diner menus, LOL!

    no kamatis if there's milk in the rice. and if there's carabao's milk, the rice has to be boiled (i personally don't like the milk and fried rice combination). the fried rice works best with the tomato.

    is continental the same as “english breakfast” with the scone, jam and lonely egg? i hate that kind of breakfast, only because i have to have rice and meat. cereals and oatmeal are treated as snacks here. ha.ha.

    i had to google this โ€” continental breakfast, according to, “generally includes most or all of the following: Sliced bread with butter/jam/honey, cheese, meat, croissants and danish, pastries, rolls, fruit juice and coffee/tea/chocolate/hot milk.”

    the english breakfast, says, also includes “cereals, porridge or stewed prunes, melon, yogurt, boiled eggs or bacon and eggs, grilled fish, sausages, grilled or fried mushrooms or tomatoes with fried bread, followed by toasted bread and marmalade and tea or coffee.”

    here's the definition for an american breakfast: “Generally includes most or all of the following: two eggs (fried or poached), sliced bacon or sausages, sliced bread or toast with jam/jelly/butter, pancakes with syrup, cornflakes or other cereal, coffee/tea, orange/grapefruit juice.”
