John Sedlar Starts Latin-Style "Dim Sum" Inside Rivera

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.

Bizarre? Yes. Trendy? Definitely. A good idea at Rivera? Perhaps. John Sedlar is never one to shy away from trying out a good idea, and after a trip to State Bird Provisions in San Francisco, the Rivera chef decided on this format for dinner service.

LA Magazine reports that Sedlar started the dim sum-style service he's calling "loncheras" because, "People just don't have the time to eat, they want to head to the next event." It's a nod to traditional lunch trucks, the 5-year old eatery is offering everything from tamals, uni with pickled vegetables served inside a radicchio shell, and a broccamole, a guacamole made with broccoli.

The dim sum format, or even the idea of it, is starting to creep up around town, from The Church Key and Superba Snack Bar.
