Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

The expansive building on La Cienega that was once Gonpachi is now Shan Social House, a reservations only restaurant that focuses on chuka cuisine, or Japanese-style Chinese food. Quietly open since late February, the temple-like eatery has been cleaned up and refined, but not completely transformed from its former glory as an over-the-top dining space. As for the new menu, consider beef carpaccio, black bean noodles, tempura, and high-end shabu shabu priced up to $128. Getting into the restaurant isn't exactly intuitive, as it requires a voicemail left at the restaurant's phone number. Hours run Wednesday to Sunday, 5 to 11 p.m.
