Thanks to @hppzz for recommending this place, they’re currently a pop-up operating sundays 12-6 at the santee passage in the fashion district. enter through an alley off of los angeles st or go through the santee village parking lot off of santee st.
Enjoy a refreshing lychee drink at the happiness capsule while you wait.
pad thai goong - black tiger shrimp, tamarind, fresh sen jaan (rice noodle), chives, baked tofu, roasted peanut, bean sprout, free range chicken egg
as @hppzz reported, this was fantastic. so much flavor (loved the baby dried shrimp) that was a perfect balance of umami, salty, sweet, acid, and heat. the head-on tiger shrimp and noodles were also perfectly cooked. @attran99, @Hungrydrunk, @Ns1, @chinchi, @noddles, @TheCookie, @NYCtoLA
pat gra prow - fresh picked holy basil, house special blend of ground beef, garlic, bird’s eye chili served over thai rice berry and topped with free range fried egg
another hit, this was delicious. loved the fresh holy basil (@JeetKuneBao) and that purple rice. somebody please tell me about this insanely addictive purple rice that i never had. oh and there’s that perfectly cooked thai fried egg on top.
They also have a vegan version with holy basil, japanese eggplant, and king mushrooms over that same rice @hanhgry
pad see ew - pork loin, flat noodle, chinese broccoli, free range egg, white pepper, fermented soy bean, black soy sauce
this was fine, a bit too salty.
