LA Weekly's Description

Lazy Ox occupies a long, narrow dining room downtown, jammed into the ground floor of a new Little Tokyo condo complex, fashionably unmarked on the outside, unless you count the tables full of dudes drinking Japanese microbrews, and is as dark as Proust's cork-lined room once you finally find the door.

The restaurant's best dish may be the deep-flavored purée of pasilla chiles peppered with a handful of crunchy pork rinds, which melt into and enrich the soup.

    This Asian-Mediterranean gastropub is a carnivore's delight: super-casual and extremely hospitable. Don't miss the pig ear chicharrón with radish salad and lime.
