Little Sister-DTLA/Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach
What: Little Sister
Where: DTLA/Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach
For: All Ages
One of my favorite restaurants to go for Southeast Asian cuisine (more Vietnamese centric, but still Asian-Fusion). I had a restaurant a few blocks away from my office in DTLA, and I loved it so much that I had to take Ethan to the one in Manhattan Beach.
The vibe of Little Sister is intimate and modern. The lights are always down low, and there is a small dining area with tables and chairs. A communal table that sits about twelve people is offered in the restaurant for guests that don’t mind sharing their seating area. A bar area is available for guests to dine and drink on bar stools. A full range of drinks are offered.
All of the dishes are made to be shared family-style. There is a large amount of food that comes out on the plates, so I had to take food home almost every time. The shaky shaky beef is a must have. It’s perfectly cooked, has almost zero fat and the sauce is melt-in-your mouth delicious. I personally love any type of the noodles. You can check online for the menu that changes seasonally.
Little sister is a very popular restaurant, so it’s always smart to make a reservation. The wait time can be up to an hour. Patrons need to make sure that their entire party is present prior to being seated. Reservations can be made online or by calling the restaurant. Seating is very close together, so it’s harder to get around if you need to get up and go to the restroom.
The food is a little more expensive for dishes. Expect to spend a minimum of $20-$25 per person here for lunch and $30 for dinner, not including drinks. Keep in mind that there’s a 3% surcharge added onto the final bill.
