Thai food aficionados in Los Angeles need not search any further for delicious authentic cuisine, unless they're planning a trip to Bangkok. Start in Thai Town, a stretch of neighborhood on Hollywood Boulevard in between Normandie and Western Avenue in East Hollywood. Jitlada and Ruen Pair Restaurant, both situated in the heart of Thai Town, are fantastic choices for those fond of traditionally prepared southern Thai cuisine. Be forewarned, Ruen Pair only takes cash. Spent a long, relaxing sun-filled day at the beach? Drive along the PCH to Malibu's own Cholada Thai Restaurant and sit outdoors on the patio to listen to the ocean waves lap against the shore. Eager to imbibe in some alcoholic specialties? Pop on over to Chan Dara's upscale casual bar to celebrate Happy Hour before ordering some scrumptious pad thai. Joom Bangkok Cafe offers unbeatable $1.99 Thai beers all day, along with no corkage BYOB. In town for Valentine's Day? Chef Kevin Sukcharoen at Nakkara on Beverly has prepared a fabulous menu all in the name of love with complimentary champagne. Sometimes the search for Thai food takes you off the beaten path, all the way out to Garden Grove. Hop in your car and venture out to Thai Nakorn Restaurant for heavenly barbeque and delectable custard desserts. Never heard of Thai for breakfast? Locals flock to Saladong Song for its great top of the morning breakfast picks. North Hollywood has no shortage of great Thai joints. Sidle on over the hill to The Rustic Spoon for some lavender tea and classic pad see ew.
