Friday Lunch Spot in Downtown LA: Starry Kitchen

Starry Kitchen has a big following in the greater Los Angeles area. They have been written, blogged, intstagram'd, twitter'd, facebook'd and hashtagged #nomnom like a celebrity chef. It began at the couple's apartment as an underground kitchen and I would catch the name on social media, but our paths never crossed until a few weeks ago.

It was a Friday morning and I was starting my day on Twitter... Starry Kitchen appeared and I thought why not! I really didn't know what to expect... It is in the same shopping center as Roy Choi's Chego in Chinatown. I couldn't picture it in my head... I was walking through the shopping center, feeling lost until a bull horn got my attention. You'll know what I mean when you get there.

When I got my order of Sweet Ginger Pork Belly Banh Mi, I carefully packed away half of the sandwich and that was waste of my energy. I've had my share of amzaing banh mi, having lived and worked near Little Saigon in Orange County. Starry Kitchen can open a shop in Little Saigon and beat competition with their Sweet Ginger Pork Belly Banh Mi.

This Banh Mi packed heat, but it was not offensive. It beautifully balanced against sweet and tenderness of the pork belly, while its pickled vegetables enhanced the flavors without invading them. After eating half of the sandwich, I unpacked the other half to eat. It was so good... I figured I had a solid 30-minute walk back to my loft so I deserved every bite of its goodness.

If you are wondering why this is a Friday lunch spot... Starry Kitchen serves only on Fridays at this location between 11am-2pm. They also serve dinner at another location... It can be confusing and not so readily available to dine, but the chase can bring the craving.

On a side note, you must stop at the Scoops in the same shopping center for their Sweet Potato Burnt Sugar ice cream. Yum!
