Los Angeles is home to a lot of restaurants, and among them are hidden gems some Angelenos just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.
Chef David LeFevre is quickly establishing himself as the front runner in thoughtful, ingredient-driven South Bay dining, giving the denizens of Hollywood a reason to drive across town for bacon cheddar buttermilk biscuits at M.B. Post or a pristine seafood platter at the newly minted Fishing with Dynamite. When he's not shucking oysters, LeFevre hits up Shin-Sen-Gumi for yakitori and ramen:
One of my go-to's is Shin-Sen-Gumi. I like the original yakitori location in Gardena on Western. It's just one of the many great hidden gems in the South Bay, and easy to get to from home and the restaurants. I usually order the chicken liver, the chicken skin, and the pork belly — all yakitori and all are awesome. Most of the time I'll finish it off with a bowl of ramen.·All Dining Confidential Coverage [~ELA~]
