Jazz Singsanong at Jitlada Thai Restaurant


In 1979, Sarintip "Jazz" Singsanong showed up in Los Angeles with a suitcase and all of $200 to her name. In 2006, she and her brother Suthiporn "Tui" Sungkamee took over Jitlada, a long-established Thai restaurant in Hollywood. They slowly transformed Jitlada, specializing in the spicy southern Thai cooking they knew from home and building a cult following in the process.

$$ | Thai | Asian
"This omelet-soup hybrid balances sweet, sour, and spicy as successfully as I have ever tasted anywhere. I order it whenever I go to Jitlada, and it blows my mind every time."
