$20 AYCE Brunch?! Lower your excitement. Did you do it? Okay. Now lower it even more. Now, you're ready to step into the restaurant. First, request a seat in the patio. Inside is a bit dark and depressing for how lively Susan Feniger is. The real representation of her personality (or of what I see of her on TV) is the outside patio. Whimsical and fun graffiti figures draw on the walls; No light-- just pure sunlight; Def a great way to enjoy the Cali weather! 2nd, Keep in mind that the plates are very very small. Per person, you would need at least 5 plates to fill up. 3rd, They limited us for 4 orders. NOPE, not per person. Per table. We were starving by the time we reached the restaurant and wanted to chow down. We were seated right away, but the service took FOREVER. They came with the chips and salsa (pretty bomb.. light crisp chips with cumin seeds (?) and a smoky salsa) first and water, but the waiter took forever to come back. Then after we ordered, the food came VERY slowly. It took 20 minutes to get even the first plate. Don't even talk about when we wanted to reorder.. that took even longer and our portions got smaller and smaller!! But here's the breakdown of the food. 1. Kaya Toast Bite- Very sweet. I wouldn't be able to finish one by myself, although it's so small. But if you're a sweets person, this is def for you. The egg was cooked well and the dark soy was perfect with the egg; just like how I eat my eggs at home. 2. Acai Breakfast Bowl- It looks disgusting... It's a murky dark grayish color. It tastes like a melted smoothie with granola. Meh 3. Tataki Salmon- The salmon was one of the only meats on the menu. The salmon was cooked regularly.. The first one we got was flaky and cooked well. The second one was dry :/ I hate inconsistency when it comes to a restaurant. Soba noodles were meh. 4. Tamale Benedict- Both the host and waiter told us this was their favorite when we got it. I highly recommend it because it's not something you can get elsewhere. It's a poblano and corn tamale topped with an egg, hollandaise sauce, and salsa. It's different and good, but not mindblowing. 5. Spicy Roasted Chilaquiles- WHY DIDNT THE MENU SAY THIS COMES WITH CHIPS?! This entire dish was chips.. It was basically a spicy wet nacho. 6. Angry Eggs- Basically, deviled eggs. Good! Refreshing! Not different/memorable. 7. Egg Salad BLT- SKIP SKIP SKIP! The bread is untoasted. It's basically an ordinary sandwich with a piece of raw tomato, iceberg lettuce, and egg salad with small bacon bits (like the bits that come with as a pre-made salad topping). You can make this yourself. Skip!! 8. Jackfruit banh mi panini- This was pretty cool. With the cilantro, the thai basil, and the spicy aioli (aka the lard in the banh mi), I KNEW, even if you blindfolded me, that I was eating a vietnamese dish. The jackfruit, although a fruit of Vietnam, made this dish different. A lot of people refuse to eat jackfruit because it smells like concentrated fart. But in this dish, it seemed like it was blanched and cooked for a bit so that the smell evaporated. Also, I LOVEEE that this is a panini. Banh mis always tear apart my mouth because it's so crisp but big. This is perfect. I love how she took the OG street food of Vietnam and changed it up! Overall, don't have that high of a expectations and don't come starving or you'll be very annoyed waiting for your food to come!!

One of our best dining experiences ever!! Small portions so we chose 10 different items all very delicious. Susan came out and made sure everything was prepared just right. This place I'll bookmark for a return visit.

Susan Feniger was sweet to say hi. The service was pretty good. The food however, left me wanting after spending a $100. For that amount of money, I usually leave a restaurant with my stomach full and my taste buds satisfy. The portions were too small for the price. The rice with chorizo was too salty. The chicken and waffle tasted odd. The décor was boring and not up the price of the food. I left hungry and annoyed that I wasted my money. There are so many other fabulous restaurant to spend your money which offer much better food and ambiance.

Being the first time eating here, I had no expectations. I have to say that the food is wonderful. We ended up sitting in the patio, which was comfortable and not too noisy. We tried the Tia meatballs, which had some heat and a great flavor. Next was the toast. First I have to say, I hate coconut. I really didn't hear it had coconut until it was brought to our table. After they explained how you should eat it, I decided to be adventurous and give it a try. Words cant explain how good the toast is. The exceptional mix of flavors are hard to describe. Just try it. Then had a BLT that was mostly slow cooked pork, that had some real heat. Strangely, it tastes so good that even the heat couldn't keep me away from eating more. If you are looking for some great food and exceptional service, give Street a try

Who doesn't like papaya salad eaten off the streets of Thailand, Japanese ramen for cheap in Tokyo, and rice bowls in practically any Asian country? Well, Susan Feniger's Street tries to recreate those inspiring dishes, but in a nice, clean restaurant setting in the great city of L.A. (with upgraded prices to match). The dishes at Street were fantastic. I liked how the plates were shareable and that there were so many options from different countries to choose from. You should definitely get the kaya toast, the blend of sweet from the kaya jam and salty from the soy sauce and egg makes for a delicious bite each time. The samosas were crunchy, and the chicken wings were fall off the bone tender. I love my veggies--and even more so when they're mixed with cheese so I would recommend the shaved kale & brussels sprouts as well. The only disappointment was the rice bowl, which was meant to be homey, but probably too literally so. I could make this dish myself at home, have it taste the same, and feed 2-4 for less than $12. Maybe I was just expecting something more like fried rice or requiring more technique/assembly since it's supposed to be fancier street food. Overall, I was impressed with the recreation of classic street food dishes, and I'd still definitely return to Street and try the rest of their menu items.

We came here for DineLA for Weekend Brunch which was $20, normally $25. Note: If you want the A.Y.C.E. deal, you ALL have to order it, so this probably works better for eating out with smaller groups of 4 or less~~~ Susan Feniger HERSELF was there to greet each table and even brought out and served some of the dishes to us, and take photos with us. What a phenomenal experience! The All you can eat deal is an amazing opportunity to try all the small plates you ever wanted to try, and pick which dishes and flavors from around the world you really love. FAVS: MACADAMIA NUT FRENCH TOAST BITES TATAKI SALMON OR TOFU ANGRY EGGS FALAFEL POPPERS BURMESE MELON SALAD JACKFRUIT BANH MI PANINI This is my second time eating here, the first time I came for dinner and a very pleasant experience. The only downside was both times (1 year apart) I had the same waiter who was the most depressing person ever, all the other waiters seemed much happier and up to par to share what things to try for a great experience. Other than that, I think this is a great staple venue in LA and one of my fav places to go!

This place is way overpriced and the food was pretty bad. I came for brunch. My group was informed that unless everyone at the table (there were 12 of us) wanted to do the $25 all-you-can-eat deal, none of us could. I guess that's fair. Then we were told we couldn't get the $15 bottomless mimosas unless we were also getting the $25 deal, strike 2. The waiter warns us that everything being served are really small portions, so I order an $8 plate of hazelnut french toast, a $6 kaya toast (everyone online was raving about) and the $2 deviled eggs. Simply put, everything tasted bland and in tiny portions. I spent over $20 on bad food (didn't get a drink) and had to go home and make myself a sandwich because I was still hungry. The deviled eggs were the worst deviled eggs I've ever had. First of all, they are the tiniest eggs you have ever seen, at first I thought they must be quail eggs. No, they weren't. The egg whites were over cooked and rubbery. The filling was under-seasoned, not sweet enough and not fluffy. Then they put salsa verde on top, which at first sounds interesting, but doesn't make any sense flavor wise. The salsa verde didn't compliment any of the other flavors at all, instead was just a weird after-thought to throw on top. Susan Feniger certainly loves to market herself as a great chef, and maybe she is. But I can assure you she doesn't know how to run a restaurant. This is one of the worst, over-priced, over-hyped restaurants in LA. Our server was really nice though.
