It turns out that this Asian restaurant has been in Beverly Hills for a couple of years and I didn’t even know about it! But I stopped by their interesting afternoon soiree that celebrated Chef Kimmy Tang’s partnership with Healing Arts Reaching Kids, which supports the Art Therapy Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

What they do at the eatery is feature art pieces on their walls, which are for sale. Those proceeds go to the charity. Lovely idea.

I love parties that combine charity with good food, and this one did that in the form of passed appetizers. (The interior is a tad petite, and was tres crowded with 9021Pho admirers, so my friend and I sat at the outside table, which was great for people-watching.)

On the menu that day were a couple of kinds of spring rolls, both vegetarian and not, open-face Banh Mi sandwiches with either pork or soy, and crispy sole, (which I shockingly ate because they told me it was swordfish—I thought I didn’t like sole, but I loved these morsels!)

The fare whetted my appetite to go back there and do a full review sometime. And maybe get some new art while I’m at it!

[Note: while there, I discovered that the word “pho” is actually pronounced “pha.” You know I thrive on correct pronunciations, but, in this case, it ruins the play on “90210.” So, I’m now torn!]
