Thai One On: Jao^ka
Smooshed between two auto insurance storefronts just a tad west of the official Thai Town boundaries hides Jao^ka, sheepishly, shyly, and easily overlooked.
Indeed, inside the quaint restaurant on Hollywood Blvd. one could confuse this little place with any of the others in and around LA. Which is why we put their food up to a standard that no restaurant would ever wish for: the Take Out and Early Morning Re-Heat Test.
We ordered the #4 appetizer, Shrimp Tempura, the #17 soup, Tom Kha, and the #30, Thai Chicken Fried Rice (they proudly use white meat only in all of their chicken dishes).
And then we took it home!
