A restaurant for the senses
Directions: North end of the Century City Shopping Center/Westfield Mall
An interior design for the senses and the ages, and food for the spirit's.
The restaurant opened a couple of years ago and that was our first experience enjoying their Pan Asian menu. We had the opportunity to have lunch there last week and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered.
It is supposed to be family style as their servings are generous, but not overdone.
We started with the Indian Stuffed Flatbread ($10) which consisted of beef with curry stuffed in the flatbread. It came with a spicy ketchup sauce and we all enjoyed the flavors and texture.
I then ordered their Roasted Chicken Salad ($12) which was a mound of mixed field greens lightly dressed and surrounded by large chucks of chicken breast with walnuts and cherry tomatoes, and the whole salad was covered with thin strips of crispy noodles.
Rob ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala ($14.50), and with the exception of my bite, he finished the whole pot. This came with their homemade chutney and there were words being murmered about how wonderful each bite was.
Mom ordered the Lettuce Wraps ($12) and was disappointed, but I found nothing wrong with her dish. It came with 5 or 6 leaves of Romaine (she prefers Butter lettuce), and it was a mix of chicken, grains and veggies (she prefers just chicken.) I might try this myself next time.
There were two glasses of sake (hot not available), and a pot of Jasmine Pearls Tea($4). Our total bill came to $72.98 before tip.
RockSugar is owned by the Cheese Cake Factory and has outdoor seating with a wall of fountain at one end and views toward Beverly Hills on the other. But it is the interior that is startling and recommended. There is a lovely bar area and once you enter the exterior doors there are seating areas to relax in.
We highly recommend RockSugar. On weekends I would suggest making reservations.
