Typhoon Review

Owner Brian Vidor, who traveled the world as a rock musician and naturalist, brings home some of his favorite gastronomic experiences to this restaurant. Tear your attention away from the windows overlooking the Santa Monica Airport flight paths, and the impressive exhibition kitchen, so you can embark on a culinary grand tour of Asia. You'll find samosas from India, curries from Thailand, and salads from Korea. For even more adventure—or bragging rights—you can order stir-fried crickets, Manchurian mountain ants, or Singapore-style scorpions, all beautifully seasoned.
