Breakfast from Laya

For as long as I could remember, my mom never made breakfast in the morning ... nope, not once. Actually the few times she did was because the weather out was so bad like a typhoon passing through or such. That leads me to think that probably the only family that still makes their own breakfast on this whole island is my BFF Sherry & her family. This is all due to the convenience of living on this island named Taiwan. The breakfast take-out business is a multi-billion dollar industry on this island. Everyone is either too busy (or too lazy ^^) to prepare and eat their own breakfast at home, hence the mushrooming of breakfast parlors on every corner of streets. From private mom & pop breakfast vendors selling steamed buns & soybean milk to big name breakfast chains with Western style taste, there's endless choices to rotate from. It's said that Taiwan has the most number of breakfast parlors (and tea stands! More on that later) per square mile than any other place in the world.

This place called Laya Breafast just recently opened near our apartment. They make the best take-out sandwiches & burgers. (Taiwanese tend to eat Western style for breakast then go on to have bento & Chinese foods for lunch/dinner. I'm not sure why. But who cares as long as the food is good.)

Just reading their menu on the wall is enough to make my mouth water....

This was my breakfast from Laya on Tuesday: a tuna salad burger and a cup of fruit tea. Yum yum!

You're supposed to eat the burder with the half-open paper wrap it came with. Neat huh?
