Many students ask me what do Thai people eat for breakfast? That question can hit you as well what you have been eating every morning. I try to pull back my memory… and I realize that someday and most of rush morning…I will eat only toast and coffee. Now when students ask, what is THai breakfast, I need to pause and think and think and think. YES, now I have the answer.
