went to L.A. for a stickfighting tournament. heard about Wat Thai (main Thai buddhist temple in the area), and there's a food fair every weekend as a fund raiser for the temple. awesome! if you ever have to be in Los Angeles, go. all homemade dishes for almost nothing. had chicken satay, fish ball soup, sweetened sticky rice w/ fresh cut mango and topped off w/ creamy Thai iced tea. total...$6. i really can't recommend L.A. for anything else, place drove me nuts (country boy), but the food (and the fighting) made it all worthwhile.
