Little Sister was written up by Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold in "Best Dining by the Beach" in August 2014, and I think he nailed it. Chef Tin Vuong’s take on Vietnamese food is pretty spectacular. We began with Grilled Pork Spring Rolls and Myanmar Okra Curry...Yum! The Salt and Pepper Lobster was the star. The Larb Gai (Laotian chicken lettuce mix, herbs, peanuts, hard boiled egg, crispy noodle, and green chili lime vin) and Shaky Shaky Beef were excellent. What really put a finishing smile on my face was the Epoisse cheese finale with bacon-onion jam. If you've never tried this cave-aged, stinky, creamy cheese...well it's a French treasure. Little Sister was one of my most delightful dining experiences. I give it my highest rating.

This modern Asian restaurant just two blocks away from the beach is a delicious treat for anyone looking for an upscale, hipsterish vibe with Pandora's party hip hop in the background. The portions are small and a bit pricey. I wanted to be upset about it but the food tasted so good I ignored those shortcomings. I recommend red-braised pork belly for anyone who doesn't mind a little swine in their lives. The bhutanese red rice are also good with its lamb bacon and fried egg on top. Be sure to get a reservation, because waiting times without them can be upwards of an hour and a half. I would also recommend skipping on the drinks, the drink menu is pretty limited and they only serve cold sake which I'm not a fan of but the food is sooo good.

The menu sounded interesting but the reality was meh. Billed as a gastropub but strangely had few beer options. Left me with 'white wedding stuck in my head, which may have been the highlight of the meal.

Great food along with a good wine made for a wonderful evening. The seating at the bar gives a great view of the chef they call "The Machine" at work. Quite a show!

Wow! What a gem! The first night we tried the waiting time was 90 minutes, but Sunday evening we got a seat within minutes without a reservation. We sat at the bar counter with the souz chef doing his stuff right in front of us. The staff are very friendly and helpful, explaining the dishes in detail. The wine selection is awesome, although slightly pricey. The food was exceptional, to the extent that we returned Monday evening. This time we hardly sat down before the souz chef gave us a snack on the house as he recognised us from before. We had a similar great experience, but this time the owner chef joined us and offered us dessert and dessert wine - also on the house. The place is fairly new, but will certainly make its mark!
