Old Beijing's egg-filled pancakes... breakfasts in China

Breakfasts are a vital part of the many regional and local cuisines in China. Often consumed outside at street stalls or small restaurants on the way to work.

While you can find people dipping deep-fried dough sticks in warm soy milk (China's version of French croissant dipping in cafรฉ au lait ๐Ÿ˜Š), steamed stuffed buns with meats, seafood and vegetables and porridges from various crops) almost anywhere in China, regions have their own popular breakfasts with great diversity.

Some famous breakfasts are...

Hot dry noodles in #Wuhan;

Steamed (#Jiangsu province) and pan fried (#Zhejiang province) soup dumplings;

Rice noodles in #Guilin;

'China's hamburger' Rou Jia Mo in #Shaanxi province;

'Big' (#Shanghai) and spicy (#Sichuan) wonton soups;

'Flour tea', millet porridge with sesame paste in #Beijing

Savory crepes with crispy tofu skin from #Tianjin

And naturally the refined dim sum breakfast/lunch tables

in #Guangzhou province and #Hongkong

Probably the "biggest" most filling and nutritious breakfast in China is the famous Lanzhou La Mian (ๅ…ฐๅทžๆ‹‰้ข, "hand-pulled noodles") in Lanzhou, capital of #Gansu province, also called Lanzhou Beef Noodle Soup. Usually served in huge bowls with beef, white raddish (daigon), coriander and chili oil.
