Asian Breakfast (DFW)

snatex Dec 17, 2009 06:24 AM

Where in DFW can you find some good asian breakfast dishes served in the morning? I am guessing that Richardson, Garland and Carrollton have to have some good options. Congee? Khao tom? Johk? Kaya toast with soft boiled eggs? Roti parathas? Nasi lemak? Other recommendations are welcome. Please share. Thanks.

    I don't believe any open before brunch time but here is a list of places that serve those dishes at other times during the day

    Chinese congee (Zhou) - Maxims and Kirin Court (among others)
    Vietnamese congee (Chao) - Saigon Block and Nam Hua (among others)
    Thai congee (Johk) - Could try calling Jasmine to see if they could make it.
    Kho Tom - Jasmine
    Nasi Lemak - Secret Recipe (was not a great version FWIW)
    Roti Parathas - I have seen them at many places
    Roti - Taste of the Islands - caribbean version
    Kaya Toast - I have not seen this anywhere (Secret Recipe nor Lion City)
    Idli, Sambar and chutney are all eaten for breakfast and many places have them available.

        BistroB serves Congee and breakfast specials from 6-10am. My favorite Vietnamese congee is at Huong Ly in Richardson, though.

          There you go. I hardly get out for breakfast so congee is not high on my list of breakfast items.

          Thanks kuidaore and DallasDude for picking up the slack!

          I tried the congee from Kirin Court yesterday. It was fantastic. Everyone at my table loved it. It had pork and egg in it.

            Isn't Saturday Dim Sum the best? I prefer it over the Sunday version.
