When it comes to breakfast, don’t make the mistake of limiting your SGV expeditions only to dim sum. Huge Tree Pastry is a true diner, complete with grumpy old men reading the newspaper and Taiwanese breakfast foods you need in your life. Their pan-fried omelette comes out almost as a crepe, the fan tuan is essentially a Taiwanese breakfast burrito wrapped in rice, and their housemade soy milk will make you realize all the other soy milk you drink during the week is not real.
