The Rock Sugar is located in Century City in Los Angeles on the Santa Monica Blvd.
The decor here is my favorite. Teak wood, asian inspired moldings put together, the Shiva’s and Buddha’s.
Dimly lit high ceiling and lanterns, a waterfall behind a glass door, it all creates a zen like mood. It’s a work of art.
The food is delightful, even with many choices for vegetarians. It has a mix of Asian and Indian types of culinary art. I dined with my friend and we shared several dishes. Rice puffed crackers with a chutney type of dipping as a complimentary. Rice noodles, sprouts, with shrimps mildly spiced with peanut sauce and than a spicy Thai curry with Tofu companied with cilantro in coconut sauce. Fried calamary with a spicy dip and of course delicious spring rolls.
The outside lounge with a fire pit and comfortable seats create a very relaxing atmosphere with lanterns hanging above us. Their reflections on the floor created an interesting shape.
On the way out of this “food shrine” we noticed all these exterior details. Well we are both photographers.
It was our second time at The Rocksugar and I can’t wait to return. Next time for an exhibition at The Annenberg Space for Photography . For photography lovers the currrent exhibition is “Who shot Rock & Roll”, and the future exhibition ” No Strangers” ancient wisdom in a modern world. Should be interesting
