Open early for non-traditional breakfast near Chinatown?

roz | Mar 17, 2009 08:52 PM


I'm from Los Angeles, but travel frequently to Washington for business, and often stay at hotels near the Gallery Place - Chinatown metro stop. I am not a fan of traditional eggs/pancakes/cereal-type breakfasts, and would love to find places in the area that open early (8:00 am) and serve non-traditional breakfast foods.

My ideal place would be a Chinese restaurant that opens early, and has good congee, rice or noodle dishes, or take-out dim sum - in Los Angeles, we have a few places in our own Chinatown that do just that. I also enjoy decent deli sandwiches for breakfast - but I'd prefer something better than the typical Subway/Quiznos/Blimpie fare.

I do have a Sizzling Express close to my office in DC, but they tend not serve their lunch stuff until later in the day, and I'm getting a bit burned out on their food.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated - TIA.
