Two words. Western breakfast. Or on Sundays – Western brunch. I have never missed a specific type of meal this much in my life. Usually cravings for something occur every other week but I think my breakfast craving happened every other day… so it almost felt like a need. The breakfast here in China consists of bread, congee, or corn. Do not get me wrong I like having congee or bread in the morning just not every single day. I even went to the grocery store to find granola bars for a substitute in the mornings. The granola bars I ended up purchasing were made of rice crisps and a few pieces of almonds. It was decent but it was not the quality that I am use to. I have recently found the same brand of granola bars that I eat back home in an imported section of the store. Imported foods are priced significantly higher than other domestic products. Once the prices are converted to US Dollars, the prices are the same as back home. Having these granola bars holds me over for a little while. Going back to that craving of Western breakfast – I was not the only one in my friend group who felt the same way. We did a little bit of research and found a top-rated restaurant that would fill our needs.
