My review is a bit late, but just like Starry Kitchen's Grand Opening Party, it's better late than never!
Starry Kitchen's roots stem right out of Nguyen and Thi Tran's kitchen in their apartment in North Hollywood. What started off as a mere hobby quickly turned into an underground phenomenon, which then manifested into the opening of their own legit space in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. Serving up comfort food from Korean to Vietnamese cuisine, the couple was a hit with local foodies and food bloggers. I have followed SK since their NoHo days but never had the time to make it out to their apartment for one of these secret meals. And since I work and live in West L.A., I could never make it out to their downtown location, which only recently opened for dinner. So, you can imagine my excitement when they announced their 3 month late grand opening party! Finally, a chance for me to jump on the bandwagon!
My girlfriends and I arrived there early to find Nguyen still setting up. We made good use of our early arrival by enjoying our bottle of champagne. The place quickly filled up with a very diverse crowd with one thing in common: their love for SK! I quickly spotted Misty of Noms Not Bombs and met Diana from Diana Takes a Bite and Danny of Kung Food Panda while waiting in line for the food. Some of the other food bloggers in attendance were Shauna of The Minty and Linden from Gastronomonom and many more.
