Much of America’s favorite breakfast fare is heavily influenced by international cuisines. For instance, French hollandaise defines a good eggs Benedict, and pancakes are thought to have Dutch or Scottish roots. The beloved bagel also has origins in the Eastern European Jewish tradition.
So, instead of playing it safe with American breakfast, why not see what people from around the world eat in the morning? The D.C. area is lucky enough to have access to a wealth of options from all over the world.
Of course everyone loves a giant English or Irish breakfast after a late night out, but consider being a little more adventurous. There's everything from Japanese, to Korean, Mexican, Turkish, and even Indian. They're even serving a special, one-time only Japanese-style breakfast at Toki Underground this Sunday.
There are plenty of restaurants serving international breakfasts and brunches all the time. Here's just a few places to get started.
