Little Sister in Manhattan Beach is not cute American food with Asian accents. There's a purity of intention that shines through. Chef Tin Vuong's dishes are boldly spicy where appropriate, unapologetically funky, bursting with flavor. Those Sichuan noodles come swimming in a sauce of musky lamb, with pea shoot tendrils, roasted peanuts and a slow burn that builds as you slurp. The Burmese curry swathes its okra in a beguiling sweet sauce, built from tomato and tamarind and complex spicing. Kima platha, a crisp, pocketlike flatbread stuffed with ground chili-infused lamb, comes atop a rich, coconut curry lentil sauce. —Besha Rodell
