If you've ever dined at Thai Town's Jitlada and met the family that runs the restaurant, you know that when it comes to their regular customers, it's a big lovefest. Actor Ryan Gosling is no exception. RyGo apparently dined (again) at the beloved restaurant last night, and posed for a snapshot with owner Sarintip "Jazz" Singsanong.Giddy bloggers have exclaimed delightedly that Gosling was an "appetizer" to their meal at Jitlada, though at least one Yelper doesn't get why that excites the restaurant so much. "Ryan Gosling apparently eats there all the time [...] as if that has any impact on the quality of the food," they write.

True, the fact that Ryan Gosling (and other celebs and food personalities) are fans of Jitlada's spicy Southern Thai fare doesn't make the meal, but the fact that Jitlada are fans right back doesn't break it, either. The food is pretty damn awesome--just ask the local blogger who has been eating her way through the entire menu and documenting it. Or us: We've had a few meals there, and agree: it's "OMG, so effing good." The fact that your curry might come with a side dish of Gosling? Sweet bonus.

PS, this cute Tweet from earlier this year shows the lovefest has a history:
