This past weekend I made a short trip to LA. My first stop upon arriving late at night was Red Medicine. The food is Vietnamese Inspired and is opened by a very notable chef who has worked under Michael Mina and Thomas Keller. I ordered got take out and brought it back to the hotel which was not very far.
What I ordered:
Banh Mi – Country Pate, Pork Belly, Carrot Picklle, Coriander, Kewpie Mayo, Green Chili, Cucumber
Brussel Sprouts – caramelized shallots, fish sauce, vermouth
I ordered an interesting cocktail to have while waiting for my food:
Johnny Drum – Milk, secret ingredients (like drinking the milk from the bottom of a bowl of corn flakes and bourbon)
