Us SoCal residents have been blessed with beautiful weather today, and it was the perfect time to eat brunch at one of my favorite restaurants – Break of Dawn. Backed by former Executive Sous Chef 0f the Ritz-Carlton, Dee Nguyen, Break of Dawn’s menu features unique fusions of Asian x Western ingredients. It’s always a little scary to try combinations you’ve never seen before, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised and satisfied every time. The chef terms his dishes “creative comfort food”. I couldn’t agree more. Got your mouth watering yet? ;) As if the food wasn’t reason enough to come, the story behind the opening of this restaurant (read here) makes it that much easier to. It is definitely a business I don’t mind supporting.
