The Bar & Lounge at Yi Cuisine is L.A.’s Happy Hour Haven

(LOS ANGELES) - Garnering applause for its soulful pan-Asian menu and tranquil decor since opening in June, Yi Cuisine, located at 7910 West Third Street in the bustling Fairfax district, introduces a tempting lounge menu and opens for cocktail hour Tuesday through Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., offering a selection of mouthwatering Filipino and Hawaiian “street-foods” sure to attract a cult following. Executive Chef and Owner Rodelio Aglibot, demonstrates his versatility and recreates Asian cuisine as he cooks from the heart – giving L.A. a taste of authentic ethnic flavors.

“To me, food is like a storybook of wonderful memories, from comfort foods I enjoyed in my childhood, to traditional recipes I tasted during my travels around the world that left a lasting impression. I am excited to share some of my favorite dishes within a casual dining experience, celebrating the blending of cultures and painting a novel picture of an Asian restaurant,” says Chef Rodelio.

Fueled by his passion to serve the best, innovate, and share his true Asian culture with his guests, Chef Rodelio broadens his already diverse offerings at Yi Cuisine with a lounge menu featuring hot Filipino and Hawaiian comfort-food sandwiches inspired by Asian street-eats sold from neighborhood carts.

Building on the popularity of “Sandwich Night” at Campanile, Yi Cuisine’s new lounge menu introduces a world of new flavor combinations to L.A. diners. Items include ($8 each): the “Saigon” consisting of fragrant lemongrass-scented pork, layered with pickled vegetables, and stuffed in a hot flaky roll - known to natives as Vietnamese Bahn Mi; the “Manila” is pulled pork belly topped with hot Asian mustard; the “3rd & Fairfax” is slow-roasted chicken with peanut-jalapeño sauce; and the “Lahaina,” a kobe beef burger topped with onion marmalade and gorgonzola. Other items forthcoming on the lounge menu may include the Hawaiian staple, “Spam Musubi,” a home-style snack that is Hawaii’s equivalent to the Mexican taco—fried slices of Spam atop sushi rice and wrapped in nori, encapsulating the savory bites. Little known fact: the variety meat is part of the local Hawaiian culture—in fact; the islands lead the nation in Spam consumption.

All his life, food was the never-ending thread, the medium through which Chef Rodelio communicates his ideas about ingredients, merging cultures, and honoring staff and customers as family. Every ingredient, taste, texture, and temperature served at Yi Cuisine has a history of exploration—a story that is woven into the food and dining experience.
