Chicken Massaman Curry

Expert Recommendations

"Hoy-Ka is known for their jade noodles, but I go strictly for their massaman, which is the best [Thai] curry in all of LA. It contains a multitude of spices and peppers, as well as lemongrass, galangal, and fermented seafood paste. Together, the curry has heat, acidity, sweetness, and umami. (PS: if I'm in a group, I forgo the jade noodles and order the Chinese broccoli and chicken larb to counter the warm, filling dish. Additionally, keep in mind that the cook of the chicken is not always consistent, but the flavors are always there.)"
