Oil Stick and Tofu Brains - Breakfast of Champions

Here Jane Lv shows us a very typical Chinese breakfast, Doufu nao and Youtiao. This could be literally be translated as Oil Stick and Tofu Brains, but you will probably imagine it more appetizing if you think of it as a “Chinese donut” and “tofu porridge.”
I’m not a big youtiao fan, but I love doufu nao. Lately we’ve been going to breakfast at a local place a few times a week. Jane get this combo and I get a great, sweet flat bread instead of youtiao. If you are in China don’t be foolish like me and wait years to finally have doufu nao or Chinese breakfasts in general (I find breakfast is the meal most foreigners still eat like they would in their home countries).
