Perfect Breakfast?

From the New York Magazine via The Guardian.

The Great British fried breakfast, as found in London cafés, airport restaurants and English bars in tourist areas, is fast becoming the trendy way to start your day in New York, according to the New York Magazine. They describe it as a

classic full English breakfast, consisting of bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, and lots of toast

However, the UK newspaper The Guardian doesn’t agree:

Are New Yorkers traducing the name of our national breakfast? Can it be a fry-up without a fried slice, toast under the egg and a big plate of chips on the side?

We can only hope that Gordon Brown and Barack Obama manage to see eye to eye on such a delicate issue; perhaps a breakfast meeting is in order?

    Hi!

    A question: when you say “mushrooms”, what you want say exactly? Rovellons, gírgoles, cama-secs, moixernons, múrgoles, llànegues, fredolics, pinatells. tòfones?

      TBH (to be honest), I don’t really know :\

      I think the great British mushroom is one of a kind, probably close to the Spanish “champiñon“.

      So, if you’ll excuse the bad joke, it could be the “breakfast of champiñones
