JOY is a casual, neighborhood eatery in Highland Park, Los Angeles. Their menu showcases regional Taiwanese cooking using fresh and simple ingredients. They love sharing our heritage through food and aim to provide distinctive service for all guests and community.
Their food is inspired by Taiwan’s street food culture. The menu features dishes you can find in night markets around Taipei such as minced pork on rice and thousand-layer pancake. They also offer limited, seasonal cold appetizers, soups, and greens. Joy’s wide selection of tea drinks, along with a rotating list of craft beers and wines, is curated to complement their food offerings. Similar to their sister restaurant, Pine & Crane, some of their dishes also trace their roots to the northern-style Chinese dishes maternal grandparents grew up eating before they moved to Taiwan in 1949.
