Jonathan Gold revisits an old favorite. Jitlada has long been a place to go for good Thai food, but in 2007 the restaurant changed hands and a Southern Thai family took over the menu. Southern Thai cuisine is known for being some of the spiciest food in the world. Jonathan's favorite dishes are the specialty the (spicy) beef curry, wild tea leaf curry with catfish, Southern Thai rice salad and the mussels steamed in hot broth with lemongrass.
