I used to work for Deutsche Bank in London and New York. Yes, there are some funny Germans (including one of my closest friends) but the stereotype is that they lack a sense of humour...and usually there's a grain of truth in most stereotypes.
As for French toast, I'd never heard of it until I visited the US. I'm pretty sure that even now my family back in the UK have no idea what it is. I always thought it was more an American thing?
Just looked up the etymology of French Toast via Wikipedia. There's not much to suggest a French heritage at all.
I like how it's also called Gypsy Toast.
Hk version is
Two slices of Thick bread peanut butter in the middle dipped in batter then deep fried until golden then doused in syrup and butter.
Heart attack on a plate. But so good
Most of the local places do it. Cafe de coral, Fairwood etc as part of the tea set. Usually not available till after 2.30 ish.
Try it at Lan Fong Yuen, 2 Gage Street, Central, tel +852 2850 8683.

That's different from the usual cha chaan teng thing, right? An inch thick piece of toast + condensed milk + some other stuff?
