Nestled inside the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Red Pearl Kitchen’s executive chef, Chad Cranford, tosses a mélange of Pan-Asian elements that garnered an OpenTable Diner’s Choice Award in 2010. A specialty dim sum menu of steamed, fried, and grilled small plates brims with delicacies such as shrimp har gow dumplings, which hold more tender fillings than the Pillsbury Doughboy’s jacket pocket and arrive with a spicy ginger-soy dip. Bacon-wrapped dates take in a two-man show of blue cheese and sweet soy as salt-and-pepper prawns cancan into a bath of sriracha aioli. Drawing inspiration from vibrant tropical gardens and rolling ocean waves, the papaya salad stars seared ahi tuna sprinkled with orange slices and peanuts.
Lantern lights pour over black-pebbled floors just as signature cocktails—such as an organic cucumber martini or cayenne- and apple-infused Jade Mistress—pour from tapered glasses. Red and gold tones blanket opulent walls, and dark wooden tables curb the impatience of beavers assimilating to human life.
