Lum Ka Naad in Northridge might be a bit of a hike, but it’s worth it. The modern restaurant has a big menu, but you’re narrowing it down to two sections: “Northern Cuisine” and “Southern Cuisine.” These are the dishes specifically from the owner’s home regions, and they are incredible. Start with the turmeric shrimp soup from the South and work your way up to the kang ho in the North (essentially drunken noodles with vegetables in a curry rub). Delicious food and a geography lesson. Everyone wins.
