MY RESTAURANT WEEK RECOMMENDATIONS:
Redbird is Chef Neal Fraser's restaurant offering contemporary dishes that are sophisticated and innovative. The food is delicious and the location itself is worth a visit.
Located in Little Tokyo, Simbal is one of those restaurants that brings you to Southeast Asia without having to take a plane across the Pacific. You are exposed to dishes that range from China, Thailand and Vietnam. Expect dishes that are bursting with flavor with a seasoned touch.
Order: Coconut Flan
POK POK LA ($15-LUNCH; $29-DINNER)
Chef Ricker transports you to Thailand with dishes that are authentic with others that exude his creativity. The ambiance is reminiscent of a pub in Thailand. The food is meant to be shared and is a bang for your buck!
Order: Chicken Khao Soi
