Though the long-running Cafe Sushi on Beverly is no more, there’s reason to rejoice today as M Con has officially opened for business. The Taiwanese-inspired restaurant from Jeff Ko has completely transformed the restaurant, and even shortened their name slightly in the process.

Inside and out, the new M Con space has been completely transformed. There’s lots of wood wrapping the room now, alongside a lot of colorful tile and those ubiquitous hanging pendant lights. Outside it’s much the same, with the place having an almost Tacos Tu Madre or Alfred Coffee feel — colorful, youthful, and inviting.

While the food at M Con certainly takes a lot of inspiration from the Taiwanese repertoire, ultimately the menu is a journeyman’s look at what’s popular in Los Angeles right this moment. That means rice and salad bowls, plus a three cup chicken that’s been re-imagined as a pseudo french dip.

You can get fried eggs over bacon and crispy rice if you’d like, or stick with a fried chicken sandwich that comes wrapped in a scallion bun. There's also pork belly, brisket, and baby back ribs, making the place a meaty casual option for anyone who just can't wait any longer for that new Chipotle / Shophouse to open up across the street in the former Jan's location. Coming soon, they’ll even have soft serve ice cream ready to roll.

M Con is soft open now, with hours that run 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The full menu is below.
