Champion Food Co. in Fountain Valley is ostensibly a Chinese restaurant, but it’s most famous for its Chinese breakfasts. Sure, their boba and snacks during the day are fine, but it’s in the morning when you have to go and discover what most of Asian OC already knows. Pancakes, schmancakes. If you want to eat breakfast the way 1.3 billion people on our planet do, go to Champion Food Co. From 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., the otherwise-humble boba shop transforms into a Chinese breakfast factory. The most popular item is a sandwich-taco hybrid of shredded beef and scallions stuffed inside a wrapper half as thin as a tortilla ($3). But there are also salty crullers longer than a policeman's nightstick, deep-fried to airy, golden puffs. Dunk 'em in steaming Styrofoam bowls of soy milk like donuts in coffee. And for those who simply must have breakfast on the go, grab a ci fan tuan—Saran-wrapped glutinous rice burritos filled with pork rousing ($2.75). It's the anti-Egg McMuffin.
