I have to be at an all-day business meeting in downtown LA this Saturday, and I thought it would be great to pick up a quick breakfast in Chinatown before I'm stuck in a boring hotel conference room all day. I'm looking for a Chinese deli, bakery or cafe that's open by 8:00 am. Excuse my ignorance of what might be found in a Chinese deli or bakery, but I'd love to have some dim sum-style dishes, like pork buns - I'm not a fan of pastries, I definitely need a bit of protein. I also love congee, but I wasn't sure if any of the places that serve it in Chinatown open early Saturday morning.
thanks for any recs.
