Oatmeal is very popular. Quaker Oats do a plastic cup of oatmeal where you add hot water and eat straight away. They also have local oatmeal brands and they are pretty tasty - this is in China by the way.

In the 25 Asian countries I've been in, I can't recall ever seeing anybody (except foreigners) eating a western-style breakfast. But then, I didn't travel in those circles.

I also love the occassional American breakfast, but it's a rarity. I don't think that much grease and fat (fried eggs, bacon, etc.) is all that good for a person. Although it tastes good in moderation occassionally.

The heavily-processed 'cereals' are no match either, when you have fresh veggies and rice which is more common in Asia.

I do enjoy the occassional oatmeal though. But, I've never seen Asians in Korea/Japan eating it though.
I was just thinking about the oatmeal thing today. I know cold cereal is a rarity, the stores barely allocate any space to it on their shelves, but I do not recall every seeing oatmeal when in Japan or Korea.

You can eat it with a fried egg to get past the texture somewhat or with some chicken and soy sauce...this stuff is good to me now...for me, overcoming the bitterness was the issue....i have been eating it 3 times a week...

Yea, Western breakfasts are pretty rare though I've been to some hotels in Asia that did have them where both Asian and non-Asian guests took part of some bacon, sausage, etc.

I actually think it'd be great to do a Chinese breakfast place in the US. I really like standard chinese breakfast stuff like salty tofu, congee, ci fan tuan, radish pancake, xiaolongbao, shaobing, all sorts of baozi, etc.

Of course, they're hotels. All the hotels I've stayed in in China, Vietnam and now in Sri Lanka where I am, have had at least some western options for breakfast.

Personally I'm not too much of a fan of Chinese breakfasts. I tend to prefer non-savoury foods for breakfast.

I have cereals with milk almost everyday.
Weekends, bacon and eggs or bacon and pancakes or French toast.

Anecdotally, all Japanese folks I know of have a traditional breakfast of rice, miso soup, natto or pickled veggies, and perhaps some tofu or fish.
But you don't have cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so thats a dumb argument.

A frequent western breakfast not mentioned here is coffee and a pastry of some sort - scone, muffin, Danish, donut etc.
