Sheridan Su, a semifinalist for Best Chef West in the James Beard Foundation Awards for the past two years, has a third restaurant up his sleeve. The chef behind Fat Choy at the Eureka Casino and Flock & Fowl in Fremont East opened Every Grain, a restaurant specializing in food inspired by grandmother’s Taiwanese food. Braised minced pork rice is the specialty here.
The menu features a roster of small plates such as braised tofu, bao with braised pork belly, Chinese greens, and cucumbers with garlic, vinegar, and chili oil. Dan dan noodles come with braised minced pork and sesame sauce.
But the main attraction is the lu rou fan with braised minced pork belly over rice. Diners can add roasted spring chicken, a marinated and fried pork chop, or one of three egg options to the top.
The restaurant on Charleston Boulevard near Maryland Parkway also has a small drink menu of Vietnamese or Spanish iced coffee, Jamaica tea, iced green or black tea, and oat milk.
Every Grain, 1430 E. Charleston Boulevard. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:25 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
