David Chang’s LA restaurant Majordomo is located in Chinatown, an area that’s definitely on the foodie up. Like most of Chang’s places the food IS Asian-influenced with fresh bing breads, noodles and THAT whole plate short rib for a casual 190 dollars. It’s reputation preceded itself and we heard rumours of 2 hour wait lists and 3 month advanced rezzies. Luckily whilst planning our 5pm arrival, 30 mins prior to opening, we were told that actually turning up at 8:30pm was the best bet. It was, and we were escorted straight to the chef’s counter.
Every dish was a hit, in fact we’d go as far as saying it was the best meal we’ve had in LA. Don’t miss the spicy lamb served with oven fresh bing bread, the lightly tempured peppers stuffed with juicy sausage and the mouth rave inducing cherry tomatoes with tofu, shisho & yuzu. BIG flavours, great service, an innovative menu, insta gold (hello racelette shaved at the table over chuck short rib) and great wines means there’s more than a few reasons to make sure Majordomo is on your map.
