Sharing plates

Tapas, small plates, family style, whatever you want to call it, I love to share food. Sharing food means that I don't have to pick just one thing, and I get to try a variety of things. Sharing food is also a way for people to connect on another level.

Here's some of my latest foodie adventures in LA sharing plates.

Dinner @ Lukshon by Top Chef Master Sang Yoon

Chef Sang does Asian fusion ins a sophisticated way. He brings unique flavors from schezshuan spices into all of his dishes in a subtle way. I can't wait to come back and try other items from his amazing menu. Here's what we had:

kurobuta pork ribs spicy chicory coffee bbq sauce
hawaiian butterfish pickled watermelon radish, daikon, nahm jim, rau ram
dandan noodles kurobuta pork, sesame, preserved mustard greens, sichuan peppercorns, peanuts
heirloom black rice lap cheong, onion, roasted garlic, lilly’s farm fried egg
chocolate cake sesame brittle, chili caramel, sesame ice cream

Dinner @ Bäco Mercat
Info from their site: Bäco Mercat is the home of the “bäco,” the signature flatbread sandwich that was developed by chef Josef Centeno. The original bäco was the crispy pork belly and beef carnitas with caraway pepper. Since then, the bäco bread has taken center stage and works as a vessel for all things delicious: pork, beef, poultry, seafood and vegetables. 

The dishes here were perfect for sharing. The menu was very unique from anything I've ever tried before. All of the ingrediaEnts that were used were very fresh and flavorful.
Here's what we had:

“the original” baco pork, beef carnitas, salbitxada
Bazole soup house-made noodle, pork-chile broth, pork & beef carnitas, mushroom, fried egg
Crispy Shrimp light crispy fired shrimp, pickled cauliflower

What are some other places in Orange County or Los Angeles that offer sharing style plates that are worth trying?


  1. Yum! Sharing is my fave! These places look great! They're both in L.A.?
