Recently named as one of Food & Wine Magazine's “Top 10 Best New Chefs,” Chef Bryant Ng has worked alongside some of the nation’s most influential chefs, including Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali in Los Angeles, where he helped open and served as the Chef de Cuisine of Pizzeria Mozza. In 2011, Bryant opened his first restaurant, The Spice Table, in downtown Los Angeles.
Located in the heart of the Little Tokyo neighborhood, The Spice Table celebrates the culinary heritage of Bryant (Singapore) and his wife Kim (Vietnam). By day, the restaurant is a fast-casual sandwich shop offering Southeast Asian-inspired sandwiches, rice bowls, salads, and sides. By night, The Spice Table transforms into a full service restaurant dimly lit by candlelight and Saigon birdcages. The menu focuses on dishes inspired by the traditional cuisines of Singapore and Vietnam, with many grilled on an open, wood-burning hearth that symbolizes the coming together of Bryant and Kim’s families, friends, and community to a warm and inviting space to dine.
Bryant’s passion for cooking and attraction to the culinary industry hearkens back to childhood experiences growing up in a Chinese-American restaurant owned by his parents in Los Angeles. His love for feeding family, friends, and guests, is rooted in his heritage, where food is viewed not only as sustenance, but as what brings people together. This passion is well reflected in The Spice Table.
