The last thing I wanted to eat for lunch yesterday was Thai food for this series.

The ‘rents are in town for the weekend, and guess where they wanted to eat family style Friday night? Yup. Thai BBQ in Valencia. Now while I like Thai food as much as the next person, having it two days in a row is a bit much, right?

But I found the perfect solution to my quandary: (1) have a bowl of cereal for breakfast and don’t have “lunch” until 4:30; (2) check out Rodded (or Rod-Ded) on Hollywood Blvd., which serves up good Thai food at even better prices. (But here’s a caveat: the place doesn’t take credit, debit or checks, which unfortunately we didn’t know until we sat down.)
