Food Los Angeles

lots of little plates…



The other night, Bob and I attended Plate by Plate, a charity event put together by an amazing group of volunteers and restaurants to benefit AYC Youth & Family Services, a community organization that serves the social service needs of low-income and at-risk youth & families within the Los Angeles area. In addition to the worthy cause, one of my favorite things {in the world} just might be sampling lots of small bites of dishes. There was no shortage of great food at the event, and I had to share a few of my favorites with you…the watermelon cubes from Anahita, Pandan doughnuts from Starry Kitchen, Thai sausage from Night+Market, and the Szechuan chocolates from Ciel Chocolatier {not shown}. If you're in SF or NY, there's a Plate by Plate tasting event coming soon near you! — Joy

  1. OK i love your blog Joy and am always following you but you make me so hungry with the wonderful food photography 🙂 Sounds like a great event!

  2. JOY! As soon as I saw the doughnut hole with the green Pandan sauce I thought…that’s so funny, that looks just like my brother’s restaurant’s most recent dessert creation. You could imagine my delight when I realized it was certainly from Starry Kitchen! I’m so, so glad you finally had the chance to try some of their goodies. I was just in LA and had the chance to try the doughnuts myself and I loved them. I hope you enjoyed them as well! If you get a chance to visit SK I hope you get to try their kimchi rice cakes!
