Fooditude at Yi

LA.com's new dining newsletter Fooditude held its launch party last night at Yi Cuisine, the pan-Asian, Filipino influenced restaurant in the space that used to be Tahiti on Third. LA.com's Dining Editor Leslie Balla was in my Mediabistro food writing class a while ago with Litty Mathew, who makes Modern Spirits Vodka, and Charles Rosenberg, who writes for LA.com and Distinction. So it was kind of a class reunion over dim sum and martinis as we sampled Yi's appetizers. I liked their har gow dim sum filled with shrimp, the corn scallion fritters, the tatsoi salad, and the sweet but delicious rock shrimp tempura. Some of the other dim sum were less succesful, but I'm looking forward to returning to Yi for some of the more ambitious Filipino-style dishes -- perhaps Adobo pork belly or braised oxtails in peanut sauce! It's also a great space with an outdoor patio, two different indoor rooms, running water and a tranquil spa-like atmosphere.
