Let's Do Lunch: Jitlada

There are some great lunches to be had in this town, and we want to celebrate the midday meal. So, let's do lunch, shall we?

My love affair with Jitlada started by proxy, when back in 2007 LAist took on the task of writing up every restaurant in LA's Thai Town, and then I got to try some of their amazing dishes outside the restaurant at last year's Songkran (Thai New Year) celebration.

Knowing that Jitlada was a popular dinnertime draw, and one that draws raves from other chefs, celebs, and savvy local eaters, I seemed fated to never make it there. Even more daunting is the fact that they have over 300 items on the menu, some of which are epically spicy--the stuff local legends are made of.
