LA is LUCKY! Danielle Chang, cookbook author and Lucky Rice creator is bringing the Asian cultural food and drink festival back to Los Angeles on July 28th celebrating 8 successful years. If you haven’t had an opportunity to go to a Lucky Rice event this is your chance for your tastebuds to experience flavors from the best of the best Asian fare that Los Angeles has to offer. Here’s a small sample to get your mouth watering.
• Mama’s Cold Noodles from Chinese Laundry
• Zha Jiang (Pork Belly Meat Sauce) Fettuccine from Lao Tao
• Braised Pork Hocks with Longevity Noodles dished out by Mar Vista’s Taiwanese hot spot Little Fatty
• Bone Broth Ramen from Pasadena’s favorite Bone Kettle
• Pork Belly Sliders from The Standing Room; and
• Crispy Tofu Balls with Spicy Sriracha Aioli from Starry Kitchen’s to name a few.
WHY SHOULD YOU GO? Because you can sample quality Asian cuisines from top LA chefs and restaurants and celebrate the fascinating Asian culture in a grand setting in beautiful historic downtown Los Angeles. That sounds like an AHHMAZING night to me! It really is an unforgettable experience and an opportunity to really dive into the culture first hand. Lucky Rice has gained a reputation and loyal following for their events celebrating the Asian culture through food and drink in major cities like Miami, Houston, San Francisco and New York.
However, the food is only half the attraction. Event sponsor Suntory Whisky Toki will be on hand creating delicious Asian inspired cocktails. Popular Asahi Beer will also be present to quench your thirst as well as Bruce Cost Ginger Ale and a selection of vinos from Wines of Germany. Who’s meeting me cocktails?
The Lucky Rice Festival will take place in the gorgeous Vibiana Hotel ballroom in DTLA. You can get VIP tickets, which gets you an extra hour before the doors open to the public. VIP is from 7-10pm and General Admission is from 8-10pm.
