Fly by Jing

Los Angeles, CA
What’s in a name? Well, we’ll tell you. Fly By Jing has two namesakes: First, the hole-in-the-wall restaurants in Chengdu, Sichuan, which attract people like flies. Second, its founder’s birth name, which she reclaimed after going by “Jenny” for most of her life. The sauces and spices here are unlike anything you’ve tasted—since they come from a trained chef who was born in Chengdu but grew up just about everywhere else.
