Jitlada (Los Angeles, CA)

Pretty much any restaurant in Thai Town is a great choice. Jitlada in particular is known as one of the best. Inside, their walls are covered by past awards and reviews. There is usually a wait too! All the Thai restaurants here seem to have a specialty dish that they are known for. Jitlada's is the Crying Tiger Pork (also available in beef). It was even featured on the Food Network's show "Best Thing I Ever Ate." It lived up to the mention. Beware: It is EXTREMELY SPICY! Have a full glass of thai ice tea handy. The sauce is so complex and so addictingly good.

Level 10 Spicy. Worth the pain.

I usually don't like this dish, but my friend ordered it and Jitlada made me a fan of it.
