Upscale eats in a downscale neighborhood, Jitlada serves the finest in southern Thai cuisine in a cozy and colorful Thai Town joint on Sunset. Despite its less-upscale neighbors (a strip club and a 99-cent store across the way), the restaurant serves high quality food. The overwhelming large menu has 130 items, including 40 home-style southern Thai specialties. Besides traditional Thai options like saté, tom kha soup, and pad Thai, dishes like spicy fried soft-shell crab and giant grilled flame prawns are available.
Southern Thai food is insanely spicy. For cooling relief, try the khao yam, a fragrant salad of rice, lime, and lemongrass.
