Recently had brunch at Gastro 1/6, a small cafe at the RMA Institute deep in Sukhumvit Soi 22. When I ordered the following, they asked if I wanted a scoop of ice cream with it.
I guess I thought of French toast with fresh fruit as more of a breakfast dish than a dessert, but when the fruit is this sweet and it is drizzled with maple syrup, I guess it isn’t that far from a dessert, is it?
What? Ice cream is no breakfast?? Shocking news!
Dragon Fruit…you look at it on the outside you say wow but when you taste it you’re like that’s it? hehe
It was an abundant dessert rather than a breakfast !In friendshipMichel
Interesting collection of fruits. Don’t know about ice cream but maybe some heavy cream – well I think I would prefer it as is for breakfast and dessert.
looks sooooooo good….what’s the white stuff with black dots,though?I wanna make this for myself !
@oxyGENE_08 – So true, so true!!
Dessert is every meal!
Hope it was as good as it looks.
It looks delicious!
This looks so yummy:) Hubby loves waffles with small chuckles of water melon (in season) on top, and light whipping cream on top of that.
I know the white one is dragon fruit, but is the red?
I think ice cream would have been a good topper. 🙂
Looking good Chris. As ALWAYS.
Looks fantastic. What is the white stuff?
pineapple, durian, pear or apple, kiwi, and a couple of kinds of cactus fruit. right?
Mmm, that looks delicious.
With hot coffee, it’s a dessert.
Breakfast sometimes means breaking your fast. So technically when it has been a while before eating you are getting a meal that is the first in a long while.Joe San in Cantonese means good morning. A morning meal is what most people mean by breakfast. Even a dessert being served in the morning will technically be breakfast.If you served ice cream that would push your meal into the dessert category. However some folks would call it a celebration if ice cream and cake is served. Since you didn’t order ice cream even though it was offered you wanted to push what looks like a dessert into the breakfast category.Another interesting detour is if someone served tea at the same time. Then for the British they would push this meal into the tea time category. So many cultures and so many inferences.
Ah. Tasty! I bet that you could have made it at home. It does look inviting but ice cream on toast – ick!
think of donuts, cinnamon buns, muffins, scones, pancakes, etc. aren’t they all pretty much desserts made to be taken as breakfast? the only proper breakfast that can’t be made into dessert is cereal. well, then again, there’s granola with yogurt. that’s cereal on top of fermented milk. often topped with honey or jam. hmm… so cereal CAN be made into a dessert after all. ok, i’ll shut up now.
It looks delicious.It would be dessert with a scoop of ice cream :]
@Grannys_Place – Thanks for the rec. Watermelon and waffles sounds like a good combination.@rudyhou – So at the end of the day, it is all pretty much dessert. Except for the oatmeal I eat. Or jok.@murisopsis – Maybe I could have, but the setting is a nice one so more fun to let them do the work.@PPhilip – Okay, I follow your logic there…@Inciteful – But if you have it with iced coffee, what then?@Roadkill_Spatula – Actually, mango, lychee, kiwi and two types of dragonfruit.@armnatmom – White and purple fruit with small black dots are dragonfruit. The other white fruit is lychee.@sassyjessie – Another variety of dragonfruit.@Wangium – Let me get an “Amen!”@Fatcat723 – True, ice cream was really an unnecessary addition regardless of what you would call it.@oxyGENE_08 – @beowulf222 – Yes, despite many people telling me how wonderful dragonfruit is, I’ve never had one that blew me away.@fauquet – It was certainly abundant.@beowulf222 – Will have to modify your diet then, huh?@Want2FitIn2Fat2Fit – Dragonfruit, as is the purple fruit with black dots.@secade – @ZSA_MD – @slmret – @nov_way – It certainly tasted nice!@LadyofWaters – I scream, you scream, we all scream for…
Dear God, that looks to-die-for.
Dragonfruit is a cactus fruit. In Spanish it’s Pitaya or Pitahaya but I couldn’t remember the name until I looked it up just now. Delicious stuff.
@Roadkill_Spatula – Ah, I learn something new every day. Thank you!
@stepaside_loser – It was quite good…
looks yummy but way to much sugar for me
I’d eat that for breakfast! 🙂
I never did understand why people load up French toast with ice cream, whip cream and stuff.
@brooklyn2028 – I’ll know where to bring you when you visit, then.@ElusiveWords – Yeah, it seems excessive, doesn’t it?@grannykaren – We’ll order so sugar, no syrup for you – just loads of fresh fruit.
It looks yummy.=D
@christao408 – oatmeal porridge for breakfast? i’d prefer oatmeal in granola instead. or rice porridge. i can never get used to slimy thick throat drying consistency of oatmeal porridge.
@rudyhou – Actually, I do make homemade granola, too, although Tawn is the main eater of it. I prefer my oatmeal. With dried fruit added to it, and the right amount of water, I don’t let it get slimy and thick.
@christao408 – tawn is a fan of granola? i have a feeling we both will get along just fine 🙂
@rudyhou – No doubt you will and we’ll have a chance Friday to see.
