WHY An LAX-adjacent taste of Burmese and Malaysian cuisines.
WHAT Owner Myo Aung honed his simple, satisfying Burmese cooking at Jasmine Market, and here, he’s added a number of Malaysian specialties. It’s all halal, with standouts like the crèpe-esque murtabak loaded with ground chicken, finely spiced lamb biryani and daging lembu, a Malaysian stew of beef, black pepper, cilantro and green onion. Weekends bring the Burmese specials; try the catfish chowder (moh hin gha) and coconut-broth noodle soup (ohn no khauk swe). From the market, make sure to pick up a buttery cardamom cookies, imported spices and other halal pantry essentials.
