We were on our way to Mozza and my friend happened to see Street from across the... Street. She begged to go there instead and I said fine. They were having a bunch of Cinco de Mayo specials and Sue Feniger was actually in the kitchen! The food was REALLY great, as were the drinks and the service.Recommended for:Foodies

After working together in Chicago and Paris, Feniger and her longtime collaborator, Mary Sue Milliken, settled in Los Angeles where they founded the critically acclaimed City Cafe in 1981. From the 80s on, the pair opened several other fantastic restaurants in the LA area. Susan Feniger has shown up on various Food Network shows, and competed in season 2 of Top Chef Masters. She was the last female chef left in that year’s competition. In April 2009, Feniger opened her first solo project Street, a multi-ethnic eatery of “street food” in Hollywood. Sample dishes include: millet puffs, paani puri, Massamum chicken curry, dumplings, Egyptian-style baked fish and peanut butter cookies for dessert.

If anything, just go for the Kaya Toast - a salty sweet creamy crunchy combo. Toast, with pandan filling, with a fried egg and dark soy sauce. Pop the yolk, dip the toast - I could have eaten 3 of these.

To end our crazy day of just eating a ton of food, my friend and I ended the day at Street. I wanted to come here after I saw Cat Cora's pick of the "mandoo" which is Korean for dumpling, as her "best thing she every ate..." on that Food Network show.
I made reservations for Saturday at 7pm the week before without any issues.
Parking is a bitch. If you don't valet, you have to search for street parking. My friend and I were super lucky that we found some street parking only a block away and didn't have to feed the meter.
The prices are a bit pricy. This is not cheap eats like real street food is. That being said.....
After we were seating, they served us water and some mystery curry flavored puffed rice thing. We never did ask our server. Our server was super nice, described everything for us after he asked us if this was our first time. He also suggested that we order one appetizer, one main entree and one side dish a piece. Now we had seen some of the dishes come out and we felt that it would be a bad idea for us, since we knew that we wouldn't have finished all of that. Good thing we went with our gut.
We ordered the special appetizer which was some Indian dish, which I can't remember. It was a cold dish and quite yummy. And of course the Mandoo - a vegetable dumpling served with a sweet potato mash and some sesame oil and soy sauce. The Mandoo was perfectly pan fried. So good.
For the entree - we ordered one order of the Japanese fried chicken. This I think we both agreed was just nothing special. A bit disappointed.
For the side dish, we ordered the smashed potatoes. Between this and the mandoo, we couldn't decided which was the best of the night. The smashed potatoes were so perfect. nice fluffy potato on the inside, nice crunch on the outside with some sour cream on top. YUM.
so our master plan included the thoughts of dessert, hence our hesitation to follow the waiters suggestion.
I got the thai tea creme caramel and my friend got the Filipino dessert who's name I can't remember. It's a sweet sticky rice dish. All I know is that it was so good, she wanted to bring her parents. (She's Filipino)
We both also got the Hong Kong milk tea which was good. We were just bummed that they didn't have any to go cups so that we could take the tea with us. Sadly - we just left with at least half of our cups left.
Next time, I'll probably just order mandoo and those potates and leave room for dessert!

Driving down the street you would miss this place. But I guess a lot of trendy places in LA are like that. Just look for the orange canopy and little black chairs up front. I just finished eating Sunday brunch which was good. We tried the morning burger which was my favorite - it had bacon & fried egg...so yummy. But my friend thought it was too heavy. We also tried the Korean fried chicken sandwich which was so-so. The egg/grit dish had hollandaise sauce and was good. The french toast with pineapple/coconut shaving was also really good. We all want to go back to try their regular lunch/dinner menu...so overall it was a good experience and we plan to go back.

we were super excited to eat here after watching Susan Feniger on Top Chef Masters. the restaurant is artsy and funky as expected. we got seated outside in the patio. walls were painted bright yellow. there's outdoor heating luckily with heat lamps. we had the jerusalem bread salad which was tasty with tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and big croutons. nice lemon and cumin flavor. the indian style potato salad was tasty as well with alot of the flavors similar to those found in samosas. the black kale with refried white beans on toast was kinda funky. the tatsutage fried chicken was a bit weird. it was like a tempura fried chicken on top of soba noodles with a soy mayo mix. very rich. the menu overall is eclectic, with a mixture of street food type dishes from many cultures. it was somewhat hit or miss, and not the high quality i would have expected from a chef with as much name recognition as her. don't think i'd come back here.

The amazing chef, Susan Feniger, was inspired by all the phenomenal street food from around the world and decided to create a restaurant that brought them all together. She does a excellent job in blending the flavors of so many different cultures so that they work so well together. I was awed by her mastery. Can't wait to go back.
