Daytime soap celebs and noted Angelenos joined chef Kimmy Tang for an afternoon of food and chat at her 90210pho restaurant in Beverly Hills. Among those attending were Y&R’s Kate Linder, former Days of Our Lives’ star Patrika Darbo and original Dallas alum, Charlene Tilton.
Tang hosted the event to raise funding to support the Art Therapy Program at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. The chef has partnered with the charity Healing Arts Reaching Kids (HARK) and will be displaying the
art work in her restaurant in Westlake Village, CA as well as one that will soon open in Glendale, CA.
Beautiful prints done by child patients at the hospital lined the walls of the restaurant.
“I do not have children of my own, so I want to help as many children as I can,” says Tang.
90210pho features healthy Vietnamese food such shrimp, tofu and veggie spring rolls, plus open face sandwiches made with salads served in wonton cups.
Although reasonable, the restaurant is quickly becoming a favorite for celebs such as Sofia Vergara, Larry King, Maggie Q, Mickey Rourke and Jackie Chan.
As for this reporter, well, she munched hard on the shrimp spring rolls! Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
