The “Far East Feast” is our nostaligic, delicious, and fun look back at one of our time-honored traditions: Japanese Americans going out to eat Chinese food. But not just any Chinese food. It’s the old-school Cantonese-style food we call “Chinameshi” made famous at the Far East Café in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.
Sansei Chef John Nishio has traveled all over the country and around the world in search of the elusive tastes of the Old Far East, but with little luck. So, he decided to put his culinary skills to work and has re-created them on his own.
