Northern Thai Cuisine

Hosted by

Jet Tila, our local authority on Thai food, recommends Spicy BBQ Restaurant, a iny, 15-seat, four-table restaurant that features 11 authentic northern Thai dishes. Tila recommends Northern Thai Egg Noodles, a curry-based soup with fresh turmeric and fat egg noodles. Also try the Larb, which is made with slices of liver, pig ear and ground pork. There are two dips: Naam Phrik Awng, with ground pork and roasted tomatoes and Naam Phrik Num, a roasted eggplant dip that's similar to smoky tomatillo salsa. These dips are served with cold vegetables like boiled cabbage. The Northern Thai Curry is a stew with pork belly, chicken and stew beef and tomatoes. Chef Jet offers cooking classes throughout Southern California.
