The Fab Eatery Picks: Kimora Lee Simmons

Recently, Kimora Lee Simmons & Djimon Hounsou have graced the cover of Ebony magazine with their newborn baby.  With the mommy of three in the spotlight, MCCN thought it fitting to do what we do best by investigating must have foods of the fashion princess.  Among Kimora’s favorite eatery stomping grounds according to the Los Angeles Times, fresh-squeezed cherry lemonades at Hot Dog on a Stick by the Santa Monica Pier, Nanbankan in West L.A. for some traditional Japanese barbecue. Try the shiso chicken and the grilled okra.  MCCN did some digging about more of her food loves. We found an episode of Simmons show when the Fab One once made her friend Chris pull over at All American Burger.  She says, ” When there is a cheeseburger around, I just can’t help myself.”  When Simmons would have a taste for New York she would go to the City Bakery in the Brentwood Country Mart to feast on their sinful caramel French toast; however, that City Bakery is now closed.  MCCN may have to check out these places because the food sounds scrumptious.

Her Background:

She has been in the limelight for years but maybe you have been not quite sure about her ethnic background. reports that Fashion designer and the ex-wife of record producer, Russell Simmons was born to an African–American Father and a half Japanese and Korean Mother who was raised in Korea. There is some debate regarding her Mother’s ancestry. Some say she is half Korean while others say she is full Japanese.
