In Trang, a southern city in Thailand, breakfast is not just the first meal of the day; it's a vibrant celebration of culture, taste, and community. From the break of dawn, residents and visitors alike queue up for a taste of the city's famed dim sum, crispy pork, and sweet fritters, marking the start of a culinary journey that defines the day ahead.

At Sin Jiew, one of Trang's most beloved dim sum restaurants, the day begins at 6:30 am with locals and tourists, young and old, gathering in anticipation. The scene is a microcosm of Trang's breakfast culture, where food serves as both a tradition and a daily indulgence. The popularity of breakfast in Trang is rooted in the city's history, shaped by rubber workers' nocturnal routines and a communal love for gathering over good food.

Trang is known for its unique approach to breakfast, heavily influenced by its rich cultural tapestry and the legacy of Chinese immigrants. Dim sum restaurants dot the landscape, each with its own loyal following and secret recipes. At Jeeb Khao, a family-run establishment for over 90 years, breakfast is considered an essential start to the day, offering not just nourishment but a moment of connection.

The city's culinary landscape is diverse, catering to all tastes and traditions. From the seafood-laden rad na at Ruen Thai to the crispy pork at Trang market, each dish is a testament to Trang's rich culinary heritage. The influence of the local Muslim community is also evident, with eateries like Terrang offering halal versions of traditional dishes, ensuring that everyone can partake in the breakfast ritual.

Trang's obsession with breakfast goes beyond savory dishes. At Kopi Sombat, the morning air is sweetened with the scent of dark-brown tea and fried dough, a testament to the city's love for sweet treats. Here, breakfast is an experience, a time-honored ritual that starts the day on a note of joy and community.
