At Kah Asian Restaurant & Lounge, Chef Vit Suttichanond blends Thai, Japanese, and Chinese flavors into pan-regional cuisine that Easy Reader News has praised for its presentation and its approachable flavor combinations. Familiar Thai curries and noodle dishes fill most of the menu, although wok-fried orders of kung pao chicken and meaty fried rice lend distinctly Chinese touches as well. The sushi chefs also breathe new life into sushi-bar staples with inventive aesthetic details, such as the crimson slivers that explode from the center of the dynamite roll.
Sconce-lit walls and exposed ceiling beams surround the dining room's gleaming wooden tables. Separated by a line of high-backed booths, the lounge area's backlit bar brims with potent spirits and a collection of bottled sakes that diners can knock over in hopes of winning an enormous stuffed animal.
Manhattan Beach is known for its warm sunshine and welcoming waves, which surfers chase on the beaches of the historic El Porto district. It's the type of place that lends itself to relaxation and laid-back personalities. That's why Clint Clausen was surprised how hard it was to find his ideal dining trifecta: organic coffee, fresh cuisine, and friendly smiles. Most local cafes seemed to lack at least one of these key ingredients, so he started his own. Named after his four daughters, the restaurant teems with eats that are as comforting as they are healthy. Between cups of steaming Lamill coffee, guests can taste breakfast's sweet side with a stack of caramel-pecan pancakes or explore its savory flipside with a 4DK omelet stuffed with spinach, ham, and roasted mushrooms. At dinnertime, the kitchen bolsters the menu with draft beers, more than a dozen types of wine, and Angus rib-eyes as hearty as Paul Bunyan's handshake.
Meticulously prepared dishes brimming with fresh ingredients greet palates at India’s Tandoori Halal Indian Restaurant, a celebrated Hawthorne eatery with a full menu of Indian cuisine. Taking its name from the clay oven often used in Indian cooking, the restaurant serves up signature morsels such as tandoori game hen and channa masala, a Punjabi-style chickpea dish laden with spices. Clay-oven-baked breads known as rotis accompany savory main courses, and desserts in the form of rice pudding add a sweet-ending note to a symphony of flavors, much as most conductors conclude orchestral pieces by distributing brownies to the audience.
Skewers loaded with chopped veggies, meats, and shrimp sizzle atop oversize grills in the bustling kitchen at Magic Skewers Restaurant. Waiters ferry speared eats through the wood-paneled dining room to hungry diners waiting in high-backed booths, or wrap up to-go orders for patrons to munch or javelin-toss through their car windows on their way home.
