What and where is your favorite Ethnic breakfast place?

The subject header pretty much says it all, but please do not include dim sum options. :) I'm open to any type of cuisine and anywhere in Los Angeles County.

    Monte Alban in West LA for their Oaxacan breakfast.

        Not really "ethnic" but my favorite breakfast place with an Asian flair is Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe on Washington. The Original Royale is an Asian open face omlette: a bed of rice (your choice of steamed white or fried) with char siu pork, portugese sausage, egg, green onion and sprouts; include your choice of toast for about $6. They do good and inexpensive other more American dishes too but the "royale" is their specialty, imho.

          Here's the info, and note it's on Washington Blvd., not Washington Place.

              Thanks Servorg, seem to be having technical difficulties over here.

              Pictures, descriptions and prices of the Royales are on Page 2 of the menu.

              I repeat, it's a Hawaiian cafe so I realize only quasi- ethnic (always so afraid of posting something and then being lambasted for saying something stupid.)

            Oh, have to get it with the fried rice. This is comfort food so right up my alley. Big mess of rice, eggs, meats and veggies all fried together. I don't get it with it as a open faced omellete, just all mixed up.

            Abby, you may not have caught this piece in the LA Times by C Thi Nguyen (I linked it on the Food Media board). This should be a bookmarked story for anyone looking at ethnic breakfast ideas in the LA area: http://www.latimes.com/features/food/...
