New "Rice Box" Restaurant in Downtown LA


News published on Wednesday, October 17, 2018


Los Angeles has been chosen as the location for 'Rice Box' - a great new Cantonese-style shop that provides rice boxes to go for busy people in downtown LA but with an emphasis on good quality food.

Although there a few seats to be had, the new shop will focus mainly on deliveries and rice boxes for takeaway food at the Spring Arcade building which houses the restaurant.

Custom Rice Boxes

Customers will be able to devise their own customised rice box, and there are some very tasty options on offer from soy-poached chicken, vegan specials and barbecued pork (or char sui) as well as seven spice pork belly, so that there is something for everyone,

Organic and Ethical Produce

Chef and partner to the business, Leo Lee has set the shop apart from similar counterparts by a commitment to use better ingredients and Rice Box uses ethically sourced and chemical free meat, as well as ensuring only organic food is on offer. Leo makes all the seasonings and sauces in the shop so that they are fresh and free from MSG, and this makes for a far healthier eating experience.

Family Recipes

The owners acknowledge that traditionally Chinese food hasn't necessarily been classed as healthy eating, but Leo and co-owner Lydia aim to change all that and use a range of recipes that have been in Lydia's family for a number of generations including their speciality char siu dish. The char sui is carefully marinated and slow cooked after which it glazed with honey, and this is all done naturally and without the need for the red food coloring that features in some Chinese dishes.

Other delicious options at the Los Angeles restaurant include triple-roasted porchetta and a modern version of bao, which are buns that Leo makes with fresh almond milk and that have various fillings such as shiitake mushroom which is a vegan option with vermicelli and other options include char siu or cheesy char siu. Lovely bubble waffle ice cream sandwiches are available for dessert using organic eggs and various flavours of ice cream.

Hong Kong Theme

The shop is very inviting and based on Hong Kong where the Lees originate from, and old style kung fu movies run at the back of the shop as customers watch the chef create his amazing dishes. The decor is also dedicated to Stephen Chow continuing the kung fu theme. The Rice Box restaurant will be open Tuesday to Sunday serving lunch and dinner 6 days a week and is definitely worth a look in for those visiting Los Angeles in the near future!
