I came here with some friends the other day for dinner and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that this restaurant is owned by the same people that brought us Jitlada in Hollywood. For those who don’t know – and I didn’t until recently – there are two types of Thai food. Northern Thai food is what’s readily available pretty much anywhere in LA. Southern Thai food is much harder to find, and as far as I know, Emporium and Jitlada are the ONLY 2 Southern Thai restaurants in LA. If you haven’t been to at least one of them, you are missing out BIGTIME.
