Seaweed Soup for Breakfast

Mee Kia Soup-based Bak Chor Mee

Here's a quick bowl of pork and seaweed soup from a random stall here in Singapore (actually, it's a soup version of bak chor mee). I love how this guy loads his bowls up with a crapload of seaweed...so much that I've been craving it every morning this week.

Yup - this is a breakfast thing, and this guy is only open in the morning. As strange as it might have seemed at first, I love the concept of having a light and savory bowl of soup for breakfast. It sure beats Frosted Flakes.

i have a strong feeling you are working around my office area because your lunch places are all within walking distance for me.

So could you tell me where is this stall so I can patronize it when I skip breakfast?

Eeew, I love your posts, but this seaweed/pork/noodles soup thing is definitely not for me, especially not for the first meal of the day (and you said it's only open for breakfast?!)

Love your blog. Singaporeans in general do not eat a "western" brekky "ie Cereal". We hv noodles, rice for breakfast as well like any other meal of the day.

A bowl of warm miso soup is one of my favorite breakfast meals (usually accompanied by some sticky rice).
