After selling out pop-ups Downtown and in Culver City, chefs Hunter Pritchett and Adam Midkiff bring their moveable guerrilla Chinese restaurant to Plan Check Fairfax. The chefs take their experiences dining in the red-lacquer and jade palaces of the East Coast, the humid and rowdy shophouses of Southeast Asia, and the humble San Gabriel Valley mom-and-pop restaurants -- and filter it through the farmer’s market produce and mindfulness of Southern California.
The family-style set menu is a 7-item mash up of traditional Chinese fare and LA stoner-centric cooking.
Menu subject to change, vegetarian options are available with advanced notice.

Although the GoldenBoys grew up in vastly different places, having the ubiquitous ‘Chinese Food’ family dinner was always a special occasion. Chefs Midkiff and Pritchett take their experiences dining in the red lacquer and jade palaces of the East Coast, the humid and rowdy shophouses of Southeast Asia, and the humble San Gabriel Valley Mom and Pop restaurants and filter it through the farmer’s market produce and mindfulness of Southern California.
Having tried and failed for years to find anything as comforting or familial in the city proper, these enterprising Chefs have taken the initiative with GoldenBoys-a moveable guerilla Chinese popup restaurant. The GoldenBoys met as Sous Chefs at Son of a Gun, with Midkiff moving on to work at Red Medicine and Sous Chef at Sambar, and Pritchett at Waterloo and City, then Corporate Chef for Mendocino Farms, and Chef Consultant for various local restaurant groups.
