Pork Curry and Beer in Little Tokyo

None 4 Photos Fat Spoon
When you want pasta, you go Italian.

When you want curry, you go Indian.

When you want pork, you go... wherever there’s pork.

Today let’s talk about where you go when you’re starving for some combination of all three. And while we’re at it, let’s throw in some corn dogs and Japanese beer.

Welcome to Fat Spoon, a spry little den of global strangeness that’s like the UN of dinner spots, now open in Little Tokyo.

You might not think it looks too exciting at first glance—just a simple facade with a single large window showing off some café tables inside. And actually, you might not notice it at all, if you’re focused with laser-intensity on Daikokuya’s ramen right next door.

But look closely. You’ll find that this place comes from the same guy who’s responsible for all your boozy, meaty and occasionally intestine-y nights at Lazy Ox and Aburiya Toranoko. You won’t eat intestines here, but you will tuck into pork cutlet curry, Bolognese pasta, Caesar salad and miniature corn dogs—perfect whenever you’re with friends who can’t commit to any single country’s favored cuisine.

And you might even get out the door for less than 20 bucks.

Unless you become the UN ambassador of beer.
