Tunapica at Asia de Cuba

The Mondrian hotel in West Hollywood is known for its sleekness, especially its ultra-stylish Skybar. What else would you expect from Sunset Boulevard? And its Asia de Cuba, a Philippe Starck-designed Latin-Asian fusion restaurant, is no exception. But this sleek eatery isn’t just all style; there’s substance behind that pretty face.

Asia de Cuba has always been a destination restaurant, but with a new cocktail menu and a revamped dinner menu by Chef Troy N. Thompson, there’s even more reason to visit.

Favorites from the L.A. Street Food Fest

As I’ve previously written, this year’s L.A. Street Food Fest was held at the Rose Bowl, and it was a fun and flavorful event. I had a really great time. Unfortunately for the organizers, it was held over Carmageddon weekend when a portion of the 405 freeway was shut down, and that affected attendance. However, the lack of a big crowd and long lines probably contributed to my enjoyment, so it was a catch 22. I hope it all evens out next year!

Here were some of my favorite bites from this year’s event.

Mo-Chica, I like ya

Tucked away in a corner of the Mercado La Paloma just east of USC, Mo-Chica is nothing to look at, really. It looks like just one of the less than 10 stand-like businesses in a warehouse-like space. But if you look closer, you’ll see it’s a unique space that serves Peruvian-Japanese cuisine, perhaps best demonstrated by its take on ceviche.

Mo-Chica’s ceviche is pretty amazing, mostly because it has gotten me to like ceviche at all. This version has a ton of vinegar, chile and citrus, and a nice balance in texture with the inclusion of crunchy popped corn and huge fresh Peruvian corn kernels. The seaweed and sliced red onion are a nice touch, too.
