Thai Town

I just returned home from Thai Town where I go a few times a year to pick up special ingredients and spices that I’m unable to find at home in the Bay Area. For those of you who haven’t been, Thai Town is an amazing neighborhood in Los Angeles, and also the first and only Thai Town in the country. Thai Town is centered along Hollywood Boulevard.

Los Angeles is home to the largest Thai population outside of Thailand, and with an estimated 120,000 Thai people living in California, 80,000 are living in Los Angeles. Is it a coincidence that Bangkok, the capital of Thailand is also known as the “City of Angels”?

Thai Town contains wonderful and authentic Thai restaurants, and markets where I find my hard to locate spices, just to name a few. I had a great time shopping for ingredients, stopping by the Thai bookstore, visiting the Thai Bakery, and eating lunch with my family at the Palms restaurant, the largest Thai restaurant in Thai Town. I encourage you to pay a visit next time you are in Southern California!

I’m happy to be home, and ready to teach! Call or email us to sign up for a class today!
