As an Aussie, you should have made a big brekkie. Avo on toast, fried mushroom, sausage and a fried tomato. Can you change it your preference, but this how I've seen it done.
@GLITTER & GUTS because when it boils down to it we are English. Australia is barely 100 years old.
Yeah but we stole that from the English lol
That's not Aussie tho is it? Even avo on toast is an English thing that you've claimed 🤦🏽♂️
I'm an Aussie and I was pretty sure we were going to lose to South Korea, much more history and cultural foods that have developed over centuries, back when it was just Korea. Sure, we have our breakfasts but they are pretty widespread as some are adopted from around the world but none particularly stand out as a culinary icon when you think of Australia. Appreciated your representation of our breakfast, being in this tournament and your use of Vegemite.
*Edit*:spelled Vegemite wrong first go, whoops.
@JXY Fortnite rice bubbles, coco pops, maccas
@KWOOWK not to be rude but there’s kinda more in the Aussie breakfast
@NatsukisGotAGun Whites do have something to offer, unique foods.
@Ibo GgghI am aware of that and I do agree u do have a valid point and god u replied quickly
As an Aussie.. the Koreans take the dub every day of the week bro. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Aussie breakfasts but just look at what the Koreans are doing, as he said they have an insane culinary culture that we just can’t match
Agreed though he should have had some fried mushrooms with those eggs
As a Korean guy, all side dishes are always separate that way the rice can be used to balance out each flavor
seems like a hassle to wash multiple plates/bowls. it also seems like a hassle to cook multiple dishes for breakfast. although if you have a wife or mother who stays at home then it is only natural to have multiple dishes.
As a Korean, was about to say this.
Well, he basically made breakfast bobimbop :) But also, like the other Korean person said, dishwashing is annoying so one plate is better than 10 small plates/bowls.
@Shinu Lee ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
킹치만 나는 설거지 귀찮아서 반찬 다 만들고 저렇게 누렁이 밥 만들어 먹는걸..
The fact that I’m half South Korean and half Australian, is kinda fine for me to handle to see you like the food. :D
@Andy Dee Not really. Just correcting.
@Sir Dankleberry you're really trying hard to start something here. Please don't.
@sean Australian is only a race if you have indigenous blood in you otherwise it's a nationality which you can't be half a nationality unless you have duel citizenship.
@Sir Dankleberryhe’s half Australian you don’t have to be aboriginal
You're half aboriginal?
Finally a non aussie putting the right amount of vegemite on toast
but the clip of the girl squirting it I was screaming "ITS NOT NUTTELLA MATE"
@Tropic I'm a new citizen and this is how I eat mine. Bloody delicious.
@drinkyourtea Gday to u2
@Tropic Bloody oath mate gday fellow aussie.
I'm australian and slather it on but I grew up on it too.
As an Aussie, strongly recommend Vegemite on toast with mashed avocado as well. Delicious
As an Australian I’ve never liked breakfast and I think that Korean looks very tasty
I agree. Gg, south Korea
Got some suggestions on Australian breaky. During the week we stick to simple things like oats and other cereals, yoghurt, fruits, vegemite on toast etc with a flat white or latte or maybe something you grab on the go like a breaky wrap.
But on the weekends it's brunch's time to shine and this is something people don't fully understand about us. We go HARD at brunch and this is where our international food influence is really given the attention it deserves. You can go to literally any brunch cafe around the country and will almost always see multiple variations of eggs benedict/florentine, a big breakast, avo on toast either done simply or elegantly with trimmings like pomegranate seeds, mushrooms etc, breakfast "stacks" where we take potato rostis and load them up with avo, poached eggs, indian masalas, mushrooms, eggplant etc etc etc and of course for the sweet tooth fluffy pancakes with seasonal fruits. But you're also just as likely to see all sorts of Mexican inspired breakfast crossovers, scrambled eggs with all sorts of versions e.g. Thai with chili garlic prawns, "breakfast" nasi gorengs, Lebanese dishes with fatoush or Turkish cilbir..... the list is endless.
In my opinion as someone who goes out for brunch like it's a hobby I think you have a couple of quintessential brunch meals for breakfast. The first is a break bruschetta (take that Italians) where we take your normal avo on toast, add a lovely fresh bruschetta mix toped with some poached eggs, fresh basil and balsamic glaze. The second being a rosti stack where you start with a base of potato (or sweet potato) rosti, and build from there with any number of toppings like avo, pico de gallo, poached eggs, bacon, fried mushrooms, feta. A typical combo would be avo, bacon, eggs and a fresh salsa but you can go vego and do avo, mushrooms, feta. And lastly, you can't have Australian breakfast without a flat white or latte. That's basically illegal.
I really think Australia needs another go, but you really need to have a look at the cafe culture of the big cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to really get an idea of how we take inspiration from our big melting pot of culture combined with our unrivalled access to all produce from around the world. Scrambled eggs on toast with avo is what I'd make myself at home, but if I was at the cafe down the road I'd be having it with poached eggs, whipped feta, pomegranate molasses and salsa verde.....
This is a pretty good explanation. I will normally have avo on toast when avocados aren’t so darn expensive. But if not Vegemite or eggs is fine (always with coffee) for a weekday breakfast. On the weekends is where you tend to have to bigger more delicious breakfast such as you were talking about.
mate did you just try to say brekkie 💀
Love from South Korea 🇰🇷
Thank you for loving our local food!
In next round try some Kimchi Jigae (Kimchi soup or 김치찌개) if you are Kimchi lover
It is one of the most popular dish in Korea
he should try doenjangjigae its so good and iconic lol
@kasual In Korea most types of soup/stew are acceptable for breakfast as long as they're relatively light.
Other countries are missing out because that nutrition, electrolyte and hydration mix can legitimately give you a wakening buzz in the morning. It's hard to understand/believe unless you've tried it, but it makes you feel different.
@kasual it's usually leftovers from the day prior since most portions are done at large capacities. Breakfast is usually from the leftovers from the previous dinner.
almost every meal is bigger but very healthy
do you actually eat that for breakfast?
As an korean, I am happy you love our tradional food.
As a korean, we eat breakfast rice with kimchi,soup(it called like guk made by soybean paste,kimchi, etc...) and other side dishes like bulgogi, fried egg(moslty sunny-side up),more side dishes called banchan. But some times we mix all ingredients, it called bibimbab. Like you made. You made nice breakfast, but there is no soup. In next time, I want to you add the soup. Bye!
Whatever happened to the breakfast war? 2022 is reaching its end... I'm way too excited for this series...only to find 1 video
Can you rate the Ecuadorian Breakfast in one of your videos (or in this series)? We typically eat Patacones (fried green plantains - NOT bananas) and also Bolones De Verde (which also include plantains). I think the Ecuadorian breakfast is really good, and would make for a great short or long video.
That sounds nice
Avo on toast should include crumbled feta and a poached egg and a flat white. Although we mainly eat a mixture other countries foods haha 😄 I gotta try that sth korean breaky it looks good 👍
As an Aussie I’m kinda disappointed Australia lost on the first day, but I see how South Korea would win. But then again this is the best brekky in your opinion
When I saw what the aussie brekkie was up against I knew it would be close, but I’m still glad that the Aussie breakfast was enjoyed and that someone FINALLY ate vegemite correctly
The one thing to remember with Vegemite is to treat it like 2 stroke oil! Get the ratio to butter at about 1 part vege to 25 parts butter and your good! Also cheesy scrambled eggs on Vegemite crumpets is best!!!
Excellent video! Good luck with the rest of the series! I can't wait to see who'll win this amazing competition!
This is such a nice idea for a youtube cooking series. Watching this will give me sooo many nice ideas of what to coock for my boyfriend, he loves when I make him nice breakfast. And some variation is always a nice thing. Thank you for this, I love your content
Oh wow do you have an sister? My GF rarely cooks breakfast 😅😕 and if we have breakfast it's always just eggs n tomatoes cuz she likes it. Aaaand my diet in the week consists of 4 eggs in the morning.... So it's quiet a boring morning always.
Heyyy a Korean passing by :p and I approve that Kimchi brand tastes pretty legit. I buy from that brand quite often and that’s like the best tasting one. Nice cooking btw!
You've already tried fool medames and said you love beans, so I invite you to try Egyptian falafel. Unlike other countries in the middle east we make them from fava beans not chickpeas, they have a bright green color on the inside, we serve them in a pita pocket with tahini, chopped tomatoes and parsley. We also sometimes stuff them with a spicy harissa-like paste, but be careful with the amount you use of that because it can be really spicy.
im not sure but i certainly remember him trying fava beans and falafel
Huge appraise and approval form Koreans 🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷
In Australia Vegemite on toast is a very typical breakfast. But we also have Weet-Bix & fruit, oats, eggs, and smoothies and coffee.
Wheat bix in Australia are also very common and can be eaten with a variety of toppings on it
You should try Nicaraguan nacatamal for breakfast....It certainly would be a challenge to prepare it. We usually buy it from some places that sell it from friday to sunday afternoon, the idea is to buy it the afternoon before breakfast, put it in the fridge and the next morning you put it inside a plastic bag and heat it in boiling water....Delicious!
Eggs and toast may be the most common breakfast worldwide. Different various but the basis is similar. Countries differ more in celebration or holiday meals.
IM SO INVESTED IN THIS THAT I YELLED NOOOOOO WHEN MY COUNTRY WAS OUT FIRST ROUND LMAO, THE KOREAN BREAKFAST IS ONE OF MY FAVES TBH
PLEASE PLEASE try Vietnamese breakfast. It's called Bo Ne. It's super theatrical because you serve it on a cast iron skillet SIZZLING HOT. Plus you know it's tasty
As a Korean, I may be a little bit late, I've never tried that green onion egg banchan lmao.
For the potato banchan true, we eat that alot but personally I had it too much in my youth so I do not like it that much.
Most Koreans will just eat cornflakes cuz we are too busy in the morning XD
진짜 어머니 없으면 아침 안 먹거나 시리얼 먹죠.
But thank you for making my country's breakfast! That is actually quite legit
You should make the banchan separate, it tastes better that way. Also as South Korean (also 25% north), I am happy to see the South Korea win.
Next time as an Australian I recommend have some WeetBix it’s a iconic Aussie breakfast and it’s quick and really easy
WeetBix with maybe some fruit slices or honey
You can make chole bhatture for the Indian breakfast.. It's a North Indian dish and loved by every Indian.. I would really appreciate if you can give it a shot.. BTW I love watching your videos..
As an Aussie,you should’ve made a big brekkie Avocado toast with fried egg and lemon juice.
Honestly, I’m pretty upset that he didn’t pick Australian breakfast but, I’m hoping he at least would have the Australian breakfast again
The fact that I was born in South Korea, and that now I live in Australia when i was 3 years old- this is getting me the feeling of *fate*
I live in australia and I'm very familiar with its food, but I HAVE been to SK and I totally support your decision bruv :)
I love kimchee. I add it to grilled cheese and love it on pizza. I snack frequently on a couple of forkfuls throughout the day. Greetings from America!
Ok to be honest this is better than asmr food I even tried the ramen that you made and it is literally a game changer love your vids 👍
Love your videos so much man, you seem like such a genuine and nice fella, keep up the good work
How do you know when your avocados are ready? You always seem to get them perfect.
Loving your content!
Awesome Series btw!
As a brazilian this really scares me... bc the most brazilian thing you can have in the morning is a butter toast and a cup of coffe and milk :y
try the avo on the vegimite sourdough, then a nice yokey egg, perfect balance of flavours and textures. i prefer a nice soft poached egg cause a nice fluffy white with a goey yoke is perfect
i have a video idea: you make different breakfasts from the same country that has a lot of different breakfasts, and rate which one is the best!
For korean, Your choice of kimchi and skills of making south korea dish is amazing!!!
Thx for making this cool video
I would of liked it if you put the banchan separately. As a Korean we are very used to putting the banchan separately and if you put them on top of the rice the kimchi would become luke warm which is not great.
as an aussie, my breakfast depends on the day but most of the time it looks like this; Sour Dough Toast, Vegemite, with either smashed av or thinly sliced apple. Occasionally, all have eggs with it, but i feel like its quite standard here to find high protein and high fibre breakfasts, its kinda just normal i guess.
Such a great series, can't wait to see it all through to the end 🔥
Korean here: Process called 김장, or making the kimchi yourself. Itmakes the kimchi a lot more tasty.
It would be funny if you did that as a video!
As an Aussie, Well for Vegemite, u don’t just take it whole, you need to mix it with butter and then it will be better
I miss this series :( when is part 2 coming?
Despite without Miyeok-kuk("미역국", Seaweed soup) or Jae-yook-bokum("제육볶음", korean style spicy stir-fry pork *for breakfast, usually microwave the leftover*) in this breakfast, korean one could go to next round! so lucky! but honestly, i prefer australian breakfast in this video. because (as it seems) it contains richer protein than korean one. and i think that, aussie dish with a cup of coffee would be one of the best breakfast in the world. luckly, i have a little jar of marmite so i can try (pseudo) australian breakfast in next morning. anyway, good luck to aussie friends for next breakfast tournament :-)
(and in sight of native korean, this video's korean dish is 100% legit. even plating it is. i can guarantee. no need to doubt!) - 자취생들은 어차피 아침에 접시 하나에 대충 담아먹잖아.
마지막에 뼈 때리지 마세요
Australia looks very tasty, but I will definitely got hungry again before lunch if I don't eat some rice.
I see Indonesia in that list, but I honestly can't think of any breakfast meals from here. We usually just eat anything with rice, it could be vegetables, meat, eggs, anything. Whatever you want to cook that day or time and you just eat it with rice, those meals will be just the side dishes.
I ate at a korean restaurant and I already got full with banchans before the meal I ordered arrived.
I'm peruvian, you should try my beloved *pan con chicharrón* . We have other delicious breakfasts but that one is my favorite!
Man if he did a bowl of weetbix for Australia we would have dominated
YOU SHOULD TRY THE IRAQI DOLMA TO FIND THE HAPPINESS 😌✨
Idk if you have tried Malaysian breakfast before but if you haven't give it a try, I recommend nasi lemak and roti canai with teh tarik.
Ikr, now im carving for all of those
I’m Aussie and I’ve got to say australia is a weird Contry coz I don’t think that much except for Vegemite on toast is really uniquely Australian just coz it’s quite a new Contry and is just sort of an almagimation of different cultures
How you describe the Australian breakfast is how I personally describe American breakfast, where there isn’t one solid definition
As a Korean, I don't think it can be called Korean style breakfast 😅
5:31 something along the line of this
Whatchu eating in the morning?
Oh? What would be a traditional korean breakfast?
Please,do rating the Myanmar traditional breakfast 🇲🇲
As an Aussie, you should also have a bowl of weetbix
I'm from Australia and I've never eaten this, but I love us videos
As a Brazilian I don't know what a Brazilian breakfast would look like tbh. Personally I only have the strongest black coffee I can make and occasionally some bread with butter, but there are a few trends that we may consider as the Brazilian breakfast: loads of bread, mainly one we call french bread even though it is not french at all, usually filled with cheese and ham, butter or jelly, a nice variety of fruit such as bananas, papayas, apples, oranges, tangerines, pineapples, melons, etc. Eggs mainly scrambled, pão de queijo (cheese bread), cake (corn meal, chocolate and orange are a few popular flavours), milk with chocolate powder. and my favorite, left overs, I love eating beans, rice, meat and even pasta in the morning. In conclusion breakfast isn't a very popular meal in Brazil and what we eat tends to be sweet and pretty carbs heavy (not as much as the US though). Also an honorable mention to couscous that people eat as breakfast in the northeast but I'm not from there so I don't know what it's like.
As some one from Australia my breakfast is usually just toast but you can have sausages and avo on toast, South Korea would have the better breakfast.
I'm Korean, and you made the dish quite well, but that felt like just a little too much kimchi lol.
Waiting for Malaysian bc oh boy we have so many breakfast options here from each ethnic groups it's insane
Really want to se what you got for Argentina in mind.
A simple breakfast im thinking is Torta frita con mate, or something with Dulce de leche... try to drink mate with your breakfast!!
I don't think there is a typical Aussie breakfast, most will just have a bit of cereal and/or toast.. some will have bacon egg etc but usually at a cafe or something.
Australian here -- the Korean breakfast looks better to me. Love Korean food in general. That said, the smashed avocado should have had a handful of crumbled feta, a splash of lime, and some chili flakes at the minimum. Also needed way more butter and a touch less vegemite on the other piece of toast.
The one part of our Aussie breakfast that is indisputably the best in the world is our coffee.
I would love to see this series
I always thought a dingo’s breakfast would be iconic of Australia: a drink of water and a look around.
For vegemite toast for me, I just butter the bread up and get a little bit of vegemite and then mix the two.
Thank you for finally being someone on the internet that knows how to use Vegemite properly everyone else just grabs a whole heap of it and says it in the mouth and wonder why they don't like it like s*** you're supposed to put some on buttered bread it's not that hard to understand
TRY 완자전 (wanjajeon) it’s literally so good! They’re little meat patties/pancakes!!
Though it was pretty clear South Korea was going to win, you completely rigged it in Australia's favour by making it significantly more extravagant then actual Aussie breakfast, which from watching your past videos you seem to rate positively. Real Australian breakfast is just two pieces of white bread toasted for a minute with vegemite, because we have a strong cereal culture so cooking breakfast is uncommon.
I think your egg turned out salty because you used the soup soy sauce. If you use jin-soy sauce instead of that (non-soup) I would say the amount you used is pretty decent
I don't think Australia really has a fleshed out breakfast. Since it was a colony of Britain, I'd imagine it would just have British flavors
As a foodie I agree a 100% Korean breakfast won
You should try Cameroonian Breakfast:)
I would be delighted to learn about foods from all over the African continent.
I recently discovered yuca/cassava for myself, and am ADDICTED! OMG, how tasty it is, even just boiled plain! It makes me want to try all kinds of other vegetables and dishes from all of those countries.
Your insights, humour, and taste buds would be enjoyable!
I love this new series!
As a Aussie I totally agree
Wow i really want to see what are u doing for the Spanish breakfast, because i don't know what could it be since we never have breakfast or we just have a cup of coffee... I'm sure we are not winning 😂
As a Korean, the only issue with our food is that my family gotta be up early or late preparing food. We do a lot of fermenting and really just things that take a long time. That's an aussie advantage to all you aussies in the comments that seem to doubt yourselves.
As an Australian, I think I would like the South Korean one better.
Actually going to make this.
As an Aussie I already knew that Australia would loose to S.Korea because of the lack of unique dishes Australia has, especially because our national dish is roast lamb, but at least we still have snags, meat pies, lamingtons and pavlova
unfortunately those are the only things we have
I think cilantro would go better with that Avocado toast than parsley 🤔
So excited for the Indian Breakfast
This guy is the King of parsley and beans
AS A KOREAN I FELT LIKE I WAS WWINNING THE PEACE AWARD WHEN HE SAID SOUTH KOREA WON BUT NGL I REALLY WANT TO TRY AUSTRALIAN BREAKFAST TOO!!!!!! BRO I THOUGHT IT WAS A ROYALTY HOTEL FOOD. BUT YEA GG
With how thin you made the vegemite I'm surprised you could even taste it.
Bro great video, great editing. Found you through tiktok, and now im subscribed here too. Keep it up!
imo besides the vegemite, pies are more of a breakfest staple than either of those two. you'd see it more commonly
I'm a Aussie and I recon you should try damper. It's soo good
Make Czech breakfast! Buttered rohlik with sliced ham and cheese.
The standard Australian breakfast would be wheatbix which make soggy cardboard taste good in comparison with Vegemite on toast, no eggs
I am from India but i always have rice fried eggs and that potato salad i have that almost all the time i have never tried vegemite but i have tasted the avocado toast and i like it better
