Vim, the Thai-Chinese chain with existing locations in Hollywood, Koreatown, and Pacoima, is branching out to its fourth restaurant, taking over the short-lived Sea Minor on Melrose. Among Vim’s 103-item menu, fans will find pork jerky, barbecue duck with coconut cream and bamboo shoots, a King crab meat wonton soup, and an oyster omelet. Vim, which dates back to 1980, opened its newest Hollywood outpost about a week ago at the corner of Melrose, just east of Vine Street.
