Breakfast Around the World

Your first meal of the day doesn’t have to be limited to pancakes and Bennies. For something different, feast on these international breakfasts.

Dim Sum

Dim Sum at Emerald Chinese Seafood Restaurant

The Southern Chinese tradition is like a buffet brought to you and served family-style, with carts of appetizer-size portions of everything from pot stickers to shiu mai (steamed dumplings) ripe for the picking.
3709 Convoy Street, Kearny Mesa

 

Pho at Bali Hai

The noodle soup is a traditional morning dish in Vietnam, and in addition to the many authentic spots around town—Pho Hoa in City Heights is one of our favorites—Bali Hai recently introduced a DIY pho bar to its Sunday brunch. Add your choice of meat (tri-tip, prime rib, or meatball) with rice noodles, veggies, and herbs to a house-made broth.
2230 Shelter Island Drive, Point Loma

 

Dosa at Surati Farsa

The traditional South Indian breakfast item—think of it as a savory, crispy crêpe eaten with your hands—comes plain or with various fillings and a spicy lentil broth and chutney for dipping. The casual spot also sells sweets and spicy snacks by the pound.
9494 Black Mountain Road, Miramar
