Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Fried pig tail
$$, Thai, Silver Lake
"This is easily the best Thai food in Los Angeles. It's more “street style” than your traditional Thai food, meaning no formal service and the food comes out super quick. Try to get there as early as possible... They do sell out and do not take reservations, so you will wait. These fried pig tails are outlandishly greasy, fall-off-the-bone goodness. They're just plain out of control!"
