Patti’s experience in LA. Of all the joints in all the towns in all the world
I drove to LA to attend a high frequency Real Estate training conference. I followed the GPS to the hotel somewhere in the LA area. I was heading out for a late dinner. I REALLY wanted Thai food. The parking lot of 1st restaurant was a bit sketchy. Back to google. I went into a newer restaurant. Out of the 60 plus diners I was the only non-Asian. Pretty much a good indicator the food is authentic. I was a bit conspicuous. After looking at the vaguely familiar menu I asked the waiter is this Sam's place? He excitedly said Yes, Yes, Sam is in the kitchen. I made it 1/ 2 way across the restaurant before Sam looked up and said OH MY GOSH. I went from being a freak to a celebrity. Years ago, he was in a different city and fire closed them down. They built this new building in a new City. We 1st went there maybe 25 years ago. Of all restaurants in LA I could have walked into it was Sam's Thai Nakorn. I knew it was going to be a magical weekend.
