CHEF SHAWN PHAM'S 5 FAVORITE DISHES IN L.A.

(Besides the deliciousness at his own Simbal, that is) http://bit.ly/1QxI34q
  1. Shanghai Pork Dumplings at Kang Kang Food Court
    “Everyone loves xiaolongbao, but I prefer these panfried dumplings. I like the crunchy textural contrast.”
  2. Carne Asade Tacos at Tire Shop Taqueria
    “There are handmade tortillas, marinated carne asada grilled over wood, and vibrant salsas.”
  3. Sullungtang at Sun Nong Dan
    “This is Korean ox bone soup with brisket and various cuts of beef. It’s deeply satisfying.”
  4. Roasted Chicken with Aji Sauce at Pollo a la Brasa
    “Every country in the world has a version of chicken in this style. Peru’s might be my favorite.”
  5. Tom Yum with Rice Noodles at Pa Ord Noodle
    “A beautiful array of Thai flavors are captured in a single bowl: sweet, salty, and spicy.”
