Our friend, Chef Bryant Ng and his lovely wife, Kim, recently opened up a restaurant in Little Tokyo called “The Spice Table.” The cuisine is a fusion of Vietnamese and Singaporean foods such as satays, curries, noodles, and surprisingly brewed beer. Love it. I went last night with a couple of my “American” mommy friends and they loved it.
The Hainanese rice with chicken was a knockout. We were taken aback because we were expecting a fried rice sort of dish, but literally it was an amazingly well-cooked and seasoned piece of thigh meat with rice. Ugh, my mouth is watering as I write. This time, I got the fried curried chicken wings as well. Phenomenal. I also got the fried cauliflower because I love the fish sauce that accompanies the dish. The best part is not just the great atmosphere and food, but the cost. It is very reasonable.
