Tiny restaurant has global outlook 

Don't let the name fool you: The Sunrise Restaurant is more than a morning place. And its cuisines come from lands that circle the globe.

This little former fast-food place at 1125 S. Semoran Blvd (407-736-0771) is one answer to the musical question, "How can you please everyone?" From 6 a.m. to noon, it's a breakfast nook. I'm talking omelets, grits, home fries, chicken-fried steak, the works. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. it miraculously converts into a $4.99 daily special Chinese food luncheteria, complete with kung pao chicken, sesame beef and moo goo gai pan.

And then the sun slowly setting in the western horizon can only mean one thing: Vietnamese food! Order bun cha gio (spring rolls and vermicelli), pho thap cam (noodle soup with beef) and lemon-grass chicken. Stay for the day, see the world.

It's a really, really small world, after all.
