J.Gold on The Spice Table, Marcos Tello at RS/LA, More!

DOWNTOWN The Goldster was as eager as we were to check out Bryant Ng's The Spice Table, now here are his first thoughts: "This isn't quite the food of the hawker centers, but it isn't tame. The famous black-pepper crab is abstracted into a kind of juicy crab canape, the curry laksa is jolted with the strong, toasted shrimp paste belacan and the closest thing to french fries on the menu is the deep-fried cauliflower, which is grand...the perfect crossover dish? Sambal potatoes, which is Mozza's fried potatoes smeared with spicy chile paste." [LAW]

SANTA MONICA Wells4Wells sets up bars all around the US where the sale of drinks goes toward building a well in parched, impoverished sub-saharan Africa. The LA chapter is hosting an event tomorrow night at Mom's Bar & Lounge and will donate 15% of all sales from 6PM-9PM to Wells4Wells. The Manila Machine is going to park out front as well and donate $1 from the sale of every Chicken Adobo to the cause. Get drunk, do good. [EaterWire] — DG
