Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

Susan Feniger's Coconut Kaya Jam (a pudding-like mixture of rich coconut milk; grassy, vanilla-like pandan leaves, sugar, and eggs) is familiar to anyone with a Top Chef addiction. Who could forget Gail Simmons' proclamation that she'd "love to be sticking [her] finger in [it] at all ours of the day"? More

Susan Feniger's Coconut Kaya Jam (a pudding-like mixture of rich coconut milk; grassy, vanilla-like pandan leaves, sugar, and eggs) is familiar to anyone with a Top Chef addiction. Who could forget Gail Simmons' proclamation that she'd "love to be sticking [her] finger in [it] at all hours of the day"? In Street Food, Feniger pairs the jam with tempura-coated baby banana fritters, making for an addictively sweet and sticky dessert. More

Kate Williams 1 comment

Homemade fried chicken often intimidates even the most seasoned home cooks. Be it the large pot of bubbling oil or the challenge of properly cooking the bird, it's often a task thought best left to the professionals. Enter Susan Feniger's Tatsutage Fried Chicken. Not only does her chicken present bold Japanese flavor, but it also takes all of the guesswork out of the equation. More

Susan Feniger's Street Food's Spicy Yuzu Mayonnaise

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

This tangy Yuzu Mayonnaise from Susan Feniger's Street Food enhances the salty, briny flavors in her Tatsutage Fried Chicken, but it pairs equally well with a warm summer tomato and a couple slices of bacon on a BLT. More

Susan Feniger's Sweet and Sour Eggplant

Kate Williams 2 comments

After it has been reduced to a silky, rich version of its former self, the eggplant spends a quick 10 minutes stewing the tomatoes, sugar, and vinegar. It may not be the sexiest eggplant dish imaginable, but the final salad is certainly a unique take on the aubergine. More

Susan Feniger's Burmese Gin Thoke Melon Salad

Kate Williams 1 comment

At once sweet, tangy, earthy, and nutty, Susan Feniger's interpretation of a Burmese fruit salad is truly a knockout. Her recipe combines a blend of melons—watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew—with a potent mix of young ginger, sesame, and coconut. Next, the salad is bulked up with blanched peanuts and strangely perfect green lentils. It's dressed with a bit of sugar, soy sauce, and lime juice. Sounds like a crazy combination but it totally works. More

At once sweet, tangy, earthy, and nutty, Susan Feniger's interpretation of a Burmese digestive snack in her "Street Food" is truly a knockout.

Top This: Dates, Blue Cheese, and Caramelized Onion (à la Street)

Slice Kelly Bone Post a comment

The daily pizza is inspired by what the kitchen is craving, often driven by tried and true combinations from the menu. This particular pizza is a derivative from their sweet and savory Syrian Lamb Meatballs with carob date molasses. It's like a bacon-wrapped, blue cheese-stuffed date in pizza form! More

A 1-Hour NYC Chinatown Tour with Los Angeles Chef Susan Feniger

New York Erin Zimmer 15 comments

When we heard Los Angeles chef and street food lover Susan Feniger (Border Grill, Street) would be in town and wanted to meet up for lunch, we knew this wouldn't just be a one-stop lunch. Since SEHQ is located in that magical nexus of Chinatown and Little Italy, where it's actually difficult to spend more than three bucks for a hefty meal (or meal-sized snack), it becomes our civic duty to take out-of-towners on a roving lunch crawl. Especially true serious eaters like Susan. More

Feniger and Milliken were ahead of their time. Border Grill was serving up Mexican-style street food well before "street food" was a term heard all over the Los Angeles food scene. More
