One of L.A.'s best pop-ups found a home in one of our favorite food destinations. Johnny Lee is the underground king of char siu, and after a stint in Chicago, the pop-up chef came back and reprised his Cantonese comfort-food concept, Pearl River Deli (formerly Pearl River Delta)—and now, you can always find it in Chinatown's Far East Plaza. Sitting pretty in the former Baohaus stall, PRD also sells a rotation of hits such as gorgeously lacquered char siu, Hainan chicken, Typhoon-shelter shrimp, the occasional leaf-wrapped rice zhong (made by Lee’s own mother), Hong Kong-style beef curry, a Macau-style fried pork chop sandwich, and an absurdly delicious scrambled egg sandwich studded with bits of char siu, with the option to upgrade a pineapple bolo roll as the bun. Welcome home, Johnny Lee.
