Whoops. Posted this message by accident on the general California board (bigdog, if you see this, feel free to erase the message lurking around on the general Cali board). Anyway, I pose my original question again, to the people who would actually be able to help me -- the Angelenos!
I need a good place that serves up Chinese breakfast (the hot soy milk/fried cruller/etc. thing -- being Korean myself, I have no idea what they're really called....), as a friend from NY is visiting town later this week, and I'd like to take her someplace good (as such things seem to be somewhat harder to find back East). Any suggestions?
