UPDATED: Dim Sum at Capital Seafood 金都 in Beverly Hills

UPDATED: Dim Sum at Capital Seafood 金都 in Beverly Hills UPDATED: Please advance to the end of the post. Ever since the loss of Royal Star in Santa Monica around the turn of the century, and the change of ownership of VIP Harbor Seafood Restaurant in Brentwood that became The Palace, the westside of Los Angeles became deficient of a Chinese restaurant that can serve up an excellent and complete dim sum menu.  The opening of Capital Seafood in Beverly Hills (taking over the spa

Yunnan & Sichuan Dishes at Yunnan Restaurant 雲南過橋園 in Monterey Park, CA

Yunnan & Sichuan Dishes at Yunnan Restaurant 雲南過橋園 in Monterey Park, CA When eating Chinese food in the San Gabriel Valley of Greater Los Angeles, there are only a few Chinese restaurants that specialize Yunnan cuisine.  It’s probably not easy to offer considering it’s province of China that features over dozens and dozens of minority ethnic groups, such as the Miao, Dai and Bai peoples, and many of the dishes are made with regional ingredients we most likely don’t have in th

We decided to give Xiang Yuan a try for dinner since we enjoyed their dim sum, and their dinner items, though tasty and solid, were unf

Dinner at Rappahannock Oyster Bar at The Row in DTLA

Dinner at Rappahannock Oyster Bar at The Row in DTLA Loaded inside The Row DTLA, Rappahannock Oyster Bar is the lone dining option here for dinner for the time being, and it’s quite an unusual dining experience, especially if you sit out in their outdoor patio as the rest of the complex is close for the night, and there are no cars nor people around. Chef Nick Erven reemerges after his much acclaimed veganish restaurant Erven in Santa Monica closed a couple of years ago.  I d
