The restaurants have been closed for more than five weeks. It’s probably been a while since you’ve had a meal prepared by a real chef. But some restaurants in town have do-it-yourself meal kits, so you can create their recipes at home.
Good Food host Evan Kleiman said some of his favorite meal kits come from these restaurants:
LASA – The modern Filipino restaurant offers five different meal kits for two to four people, including Inasal Roast Whole Chicken or Kare Kare Braised Breast.
Seoul Sausage Co. – Chef Chris Oh offers Korean barbecue kits with banchan.
Little for all – They offer a kit with fresh pasta, sauce, cookie dough. They donate a free pound of food to the LA Food Bank for every meal kit ordered.
Vegana Mexicana (in Santa Ana) – These aren’t so much kits as deliveries of killer vegan tamales. Tamales are chewy and chewy, and Kleiman says she’s never tasted better vegan cheese. La Vegana Mexicana offers a Tamales and Chill package. They deliver on Saturdays in LA.
Alta Baja Market (in Santa Ana). Delilah Snell’s vegan version of pozole has been featured in the New Yorker. His pozole – vegan, traditional pork – has a dedicated following (including Kleiman). His Pozole family pack for four is generous.
“When I warmed up the bowl of pozole, added it all together, and carried it to my dining room table, I felt like a fog had gone. lifted from my mind, ”says Kleiman.
