East Hollywood is the undisputed hub of Thai food in LA, but you’ll find the best panang curry at a food stall in Grand Central Market. Sticky Rice (and their more noodle-based concept Sticky Rice II) has absolutely fantastic Thai street food across the board, but if you don’t go all-in on that sweet and savory panang, you’re doing it wrong. We drive long distances to get this dish, and so will you.
