LAFW 2013: Sights and Bites from Night Market
By Lesley Balla
August 24, 2013
LAFW is in full swing, with the second big tasting taking a turn through the flavors of China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. Morimoto hosted, which meant he was busy taking photos with fans (lots of them, too), and occasionally checking in at his booth where his staff served some delicious totoyaki. At one point he was on stage, whooping up the crowd and then he sang a song in Japanese. Give that man a mic, and he will always use it.
The event was more crowded than night one, with a huge draw for fare from LA chefs like Night + Market's Kris Yenbamroong, Helen An from the House of An and more, plus celebs like Ed Lee, Morimoto, Roy Yamaguchi and Jet Tila. Check out the slide show for some of our favorite sights and bites of the night.
