|Lukshon's soft shell crab with sambal kacang|
At this two and a half hour tasting fest, one $50 ticket will get you tastes from restaurants including Lukshon, Night+Market, Good Girl Dinette, Rocksugar, the Spice Table, Jet Tila from Charleston and Parks BBQ.
Plus, there's 16 different cocktails being mixed by 8 L.A. mixologists. One of the sponsors is Bombay Sapphire's new East gin with flavors of lemongrass and peppercorn, so expect a few of them to be gin-based drinks.
Night+Market chef Kris Yenbamroong says he hasn't decided yet what to make, but since the concept of his Sunset Strip restaurant is Thai street food, it should go perfectly with the Lucky Rice concept. Tickets are $50, plus a VIP ticket for $88 including early entrance and admission to the chef's lounge.
Or, if you're looking for a more street-level Asian night market experience, the 626 folks are trying it again in Pasadena in a much bigger space with more food booths on July 28.
