Little Tokyo is not just for ramen and sushi. There's plenty of diversity in the restaurants that have popped up there recently.
At Fickle, you will find a range of items from shrimp cocktails to Vietnamese style noodles. From the new spring menu, I liked the Kampuchia Shrimp with Pickled Carrot and Cilantro, Black Pepper and Lime Vinaigrette. Dip them generously in the sauce.
Roasted Bone Marrow with Basil and Citrus Gremolata, Ginger Soy Lacquer, Pickled Daikon
By the way, you can get one of these for $7 during their happy hour (M-F, 5-7pm). They also have $1 oysters during happy hour!
Ginger Marinated Flat Iron Steak with Kochujang, Orzo, Roasted Shimeji Mushrooms, Baby Spinach
There was also Roasted Spring Leg of Lamb with Pickled Corn, Couscous, Mint Pistou
Dessert was a rich tart of chocolate, hazelnut and salted caramel with Jameson Irish whisky ice cream (Fosselman's)
