Fun new menu items, poolside cinema, and a culinary trip to France are just a few things on deck this week in Los Angeles. A harpsichord virtuoso accompanies the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra for a concert of pre-classical music, while both a musical and macabre take on two classics made popular by Disney take the stage as well. A popular youth music school rocks the opening of their newest location, and an increasingly popular indie late night show hosted at The Second City rounds out a week of truly L.A. entertainment.

New Indomie Burrito
235 Main St.
Venice, CA 90291
(310) 255-6742

For a limited time, food truck turned brick and mortar Komodo will be offering a special Indomie Burrito for $9. The brainchild of Executive Chef Erwin Tjahyadi, this version of a Steak and Egg Indonesian Mie Goreng Ramen includes indomie ramen, eggs, sweet Chinese sausages, green onions, and fried shallots, all wrapped up in a tasty burrito. For a full-blown Asian infusion indulgence, order a side of Kimchi Nachos, topped with hot kimchi, bacon, and Sriracha aioli. The special offer, originally slated to end Sunday, has already gained so much popularity that it will be extended through the end of the month, but the Indomie Burrito often sells out, so get it while it’s good.
