When you are visiting Thailand you will find that Western-style breakfasts are not very common. It is a good idea to manage your expectations that you may not find toasted bread, scrambled eggs, sausages, French toast, or a bowl of your favorite cereal with milk at the breakfast table. With the exception of hotels and foreign restaurants, these type of breakfasts is not readily available on the street or at neighborhood restaurants. Generally speaking, you can eat many of the same Thai foods for breakfast that you might eat for lunch or for dinner, but the varieties will be a bit less spicy. The word for breakfast in Thai is called aahan chow, which means morning food and it covers a wide range of options from little snacks, porridge to Thai omelet (Kai Jiew) or even grilled chicken with sticky rice (khao niew).
