"Non-traditional" sit-down breakfast places in SF

roz | Jan 6, 201308:01 PM     15

Friends:

My SO and I will be in San Francisco for a few days, and he's not a fan of "traditional" breakfasts - pancakes, waffles, eggs. Typically when we travel, we like to eat at good delis or Asian restaurants that are open by 8:00 am and will let you order lunch-type of items. So we're looking for recs for good places in SF that will allow us to eat these kind of meals in the morning.

We'll be staying in Japantown, but will have a car, and are willing to drive pretty far into different places in the city if the food is good. I'm wondering whether any of the Japanese restaurants do a traditional Japanese breakfast where you can get broiled fish and vegetables. Also, how is Washington Bakery for congee, or is there any other place with good congee that folks would recommend? I used to go to Hing Lung every time I was visiting SF, but it seems to be closed.

TIA for any other recs that seem to fit the bill.

-Roz, from Los Angeles
