I love me some Chinese food and am certainly willing to try any promising westside Chinese.
It’s not far from the Mitsuwa market in Mar Vista and used to be “Status Kuo”. Both are the creations of Chef/Owner David Kuo.
Beef and Broccoli. yu choy, Chinese BBQ sauce, red vinegar. I normally would never order B&B but this version was actually really good with a bit of heat and a fish sauce thing that made it a bit like a panang.
Walnut Shrimp. Mayo sauce, watermelon radish, candied walnuts. A bit more fried and not as much “light” mayo as the classic. Certainly tasty, and good quality shrimp, but I like the traditional a hair better (when it’s good).
Taro ice cream. Fried sesame balls, coconut, thai basil. I didn’t think I would like this, given that I detest taro, but it was actually pretty great. Sesame balls had a nice texture contrast with the ice cream.
Overall, Little Fatty was pretty great. I like the slightly modern updated Chinese sensibility and it maintains much of what I love about Chinese flavor. I’ve already been 3 times and will go again. Wish they didn’t use MSG though (I can feel a bit of CRS afterward).
