Right next to Daikokuya Ramen in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, there’s a gem of a restaurant. A casual curry and pasta kitchen, Fat Spoon can also fall under the category of “fusion” because of its Italian-Japanese style dishes. Overall rating…8/10.

Seafood Salad [$9.00] Marinated Shrimp, Calamari, Scallop, and Clams served w/Assorted Greens & Curry Dressing.

Tarako [$10.00] Salted Cod Roe, Cream, Dried Seaweed & Shiso Leaf
Tarako refers to a Japanese preparation of salted cod roe. The pasta was perfectly al dente which paired perfectly with the richness of the tarako and cream. The perfect Italian/Japanese hybrid…
Sautéed Mixed Mushroom [$2.00]
Three different types of mushrooms-cremini, shiitake, and enoki-sautéed revealing their earthy, umami-rich flavors.
