Louie Loves LA: Rice Bar

A bowl of rice topped with lots of delicious things is never really a bad idea right? But this isn’t just rice. This is heirloom rice. Get excited. So if you know something about rice, you can choose your variety and pick your toppings. Alternatively you can go with Rice Bar’s recommended pairings. You can choose from housemade pork sausage, chicken, beef or crispy anchovies all with a selection of paired garnishes like pickled vegetables, garlic crumbs, green papaya, and chili leaves. Are you hungry yet. The bowls are a good size and you can watch your being assembled as the whole restaurant space cant be more than 300 square feet so where ever you are you are basically in the kitchen. It’s cute though, with bright stools pulled up to a marble topped bar that surrounds the little kitchen. Everyone is very friendly and happy to chat and explains things while they prep your meal. Our picks for the bowl are the sausage which comes over garlic fried rice and the anchovies – a lighter option topped with fresh avocado and tomato that is a perfectly salty and crunchy and delicious. If you still have room, definitely pick up a housemade rice crispy treat which will truly shame those ones you made for bake sales in middle school. These are the real deal, with fancy flavors and all.
