What do people eat for breakfast in the Arab world?


I know that in every country there is different food. The most popular Middle Eastern food is the Mediterranean cuisine y3ani tabouleh, salads, kibbe, falafel, pita bread, humus, baba ghonoush, kabobs, shawarma etc.

In Egypt a think beans "ful" are popular, koshari soup dish, and in Upper Egypt some people cook little birds "pigeons" ana msh motakeda...I need to learn more about Egyptian cuisine.

All this food sounds great for lunch or for dinner. But what do you eat for breakfast? y3ani the most important meal of the day.
