Jitlada: I need your help with what to order

Wolfgang | May 29, 2008 03:01 PM

I'm a Thai food novice. I think I should like it but I haven't really liked dishes I've had at Thai restaurants close to me in Santa Monica--Toi and Thai Dishes. I've eaten Toi mostly because it's open after the bars close and it's an easy walk from my house.

I want to go to Jitlada this weekend to try real Thai food and I want to order correctly as opposed to safely. Artichokes and mayonnaise are about the only foods I dislike by themselves. I have no allergies. I like pork, beef, chicken and lamb. I like spicy and I don't usually care for savory dishes that are sweet. Curry dishes with coconut milk taste good for a few bites but I find them overwhelming as a main dish.
I'm only going with one other person, so I won't be able to order many things and split them.

One other thing--if you say I should order something with a Thai name, can you please translate it?

Thanks very much for your suggestions.
