(Gerry Furth-Sides) On July 28th, the LUCKYRICE Los Angeles Feast returns to Vibiana in DTLA to spotlight the city’s vibrant, Asian culinary scene to celebrate its 8th “lucky year.”  Presented by Suntory Whisky TokiLUCKYRICE, America’s largest Asian food festival, explores the diverse Asian-American experience, using food and drink as a universal lens.  LUCKYRICE is true to its goal of showcasing the role and influence of Asian cuisine on the way we all eat today.

The Feast at Vibiana promises a celebration of Asian culinary and cultural collaborations with more than 20 Los Angeles-based participants representing several of Asia’s beloved eating capitals.  And it is is one of the most interesting indoor-outdoor venues in town.

A sample of the tantalizing delights you’ll find at this year’s LA LUCKYRICE include:

●      Braised Pork Hocks with Longevity Noodles dished out by Mar Vista’s Taiwanese hot spot Little Fatty;

●      Bone Broth Ramen from Pasadena’s favorite Bone Kettle;

●      Pork Belly Sliders from The Standing Room; and

●      Crispy Tofu Balls with Spicy Sriracha AioliStarry Kitchen’s signature dish.

But the food is only half the attraction. Feast participants will enjoy Asian-inspired cocktails by presenting sponsor Suntory Whisky Toki; plus Asahi Beer, Bruce Cost Ginger Ale and a selection of wines provided by Wines of Germany, all perfect to pair with the spicy, sweet, and umami-packed dishes being served.

LUCKYRICE seems to have taken the place of the (also) extraordinarily organized Asian professional fundraiser event group, Project by Project, because the event curators keep the spotlight on Asian restaurants.  Like P x P, they also somehow set a festive tone so that the individual guests somehow celebrate as a cohesive whole as though they all already knew each other.

“Angelenos are perhaps the most sophisticated eaters when it comes to Asian grub,” said LUCKYRICE founder Danielle Chang, “which is why our Los Angeles Feast is such a stellar showing of the Asian food movement in America, from traditional favorites to what’s new, now and next in the Asian-inspired culinary world.”
