LITTLE SISTER DTLA RESTAURANT IS HIP, HAPPENING & DELICIOUS

littlesisterBack in April, DTLAexplorer first told you about news that Little Sister restaurant was moving in to the old  Gaji space at 523 W. 7th Street.  Well, after months of waiting, Little Sister finally opened a few weeks ago and it’s getting a lot of buzz.

My husband and I  checked it out for dinner a few nights ago.  We knew they served Southeast Asian inspired food, but their menu is not posted on its website, so we really didn’t know what to expect.  The interior of the restaurant is very hip.  The walls are covered with what appear to be street art images of helicopters.  There are lots of tables in the dining area and a large bar toward the rear of the restaurant. Despite the large bar, Little Sister only serves craft beer, sake and wine.

The menu takes time to decipher, but our server was there to answer questions and make suggestions.  We started with the baby octopus ($12). It was cooked perfectly.  We also started with the Imperial Rolls ($14). They were stuffed with  shrimp, crab, pork, taro root, glass noodle, roasted peanut with a chili lime sauce.  These too were delicious.

For our main courses, we both ordered beef.  My husband went for the Lemongrass Beef ($16).  It was good.  I ordered the Shaky Shaky Beef ($28).   Okay, the Shaky Shaky Beef was amazing.  When you go to Little Sister, you must  order the Shaky Shaky Beef.  It’s one of the most expensive dishes on the menu, but it is worth it.  The beef was so tender and flavorful, and the rice was perfect.  I loved the Shaky Shaky Beef!

Now, here is my only complaint about Little Sister… the music.  We are not some uptight conservative couple, but the music overhead was loud hardcore rap with explicit (very explicit) language.  If we would have been given a dollar for every time we heard the “f” word, we would have dined for free.

Here’s the deal, the f*cking food was so f*cking good that I will sit through that f*cking music anytime.  We f*ucking loved Little Sister and we can’t wait to go back.
