"I have to say that biscuits and gravy sounds like some form of medieval torture to me..."

It is. But a wonderful torment. :)

Shocking news...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... g-way.html
Biscuit-eaters were today recovering from a shock announcement that has turned their world (quite literally) upside down.

What they thought was the top of their beloved McVitie's Digestives and Hobnobs is actually the bottom... so they've been eating them the wrong way up all these years.

Ham served here with breakfast? I'd like to know of any places that don't serve what we call lunch meat (a 1mm thick slice machine cut in a factory that makes meat logs out of a combination of ham and other pig parts).

Not upset at all. There are 2 basic types of restaurant breakfasts for the middle of the economic spectrum. One type is no better than bad airline food, IMHO. By time time I was living on my own, the only time I ate at places that serve such nourishment was on road trips. Of the other kind, those who like the first kind wonder what is wrong with us to pay twice as much for breakfast as we should. The difference is quality of ingredients, the belief that adding an additional flavor or texture (or 2) can help a dish, and preparation.

In the western style omelettes that I know of here, the ingredients play a supporting role to the eggs, unlike in the US where they take center stage, spotlight and top billing.

It's been a while, but I believe All in Hua Hin serves potatoes that are between close and spot on to what we call home fried potatoes.

Ohhhhhhhh biscuits and gravy....

When either is done properly, serving one without the other is like (fill in your favorite food pairs), e.g. Pizza & Beer, Turkey & Stuffing, Fries & Ketchup, Fish & Chips, etc.

Exactly.

So is that not the norm? Once bitten, twice shy - I've never ordered it since, :D The sausage actually looked more like Scottish sausage slices, which can be lovely, but smothered in syrup - an acquired taste, which i failed to achieve.

Having said the above about sausages and syrup, I have enjoyed fried bread sandwiches with strawberry jam before. :oops:

"It's been a while, but I believe All in Hua Hin serves potatoes that are between close and spot on to what we call home fried."

Potatoes and coffee (not from espresso beans) with breakfast would be a wonderful treat.

There is only one place I am aware of in Phetchabun that serves up a UK style breakfast, but the only choice of potato is jacket (baked) or chips (french fries).

Breakfast before 10am would be great too.

Actually sausage covered in syrup is wrong on so many levels.

I enjoy pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc with syrup on them. But typically request they be served on a separate plate from the rest of the meal. Syrup tends to get over everything otherwise.

Ah, thank you. To me that looks like a chocolate covered cookie. More of a desert item than a meal.

While 'biscuit' in Amurrcan = scone in English!
American English and British English use the word "biscuit" to refer to two distinctly different modern foods. Early hard biscuits (North American: cookies) were derived from a twice-baked bread, whereas the North American biscuit is similar to a savoury European scone
