Stephen wishes all my 43 Things friends a very Happy New Year 2014!!!
Thai Patio – In the heart of Thai town, I like this restaurant for it’s atmosphere and food. It is popular, but usually not crowded and there is always some entertainment in the evenings. Great for a night out in Hollywood.
Thai Ocean – On Vermont Avenue, Thai Ocean stands by itself in a sea of Korean & Latino businesses. It is like home Thai cooking and just a block away from Wilshire Blvd & the subway. They only take cash, but the food and the portions are definitely worth going here.
The Stinking Rose – One of the few restaurants in Beverly Hills restaurant row that I like, this sister restaurant of the original in San Francisco is all about the garlic. And I have learned a lot about preparing garlic that I tried here first. My favorite dishes are the pastas which I think are way better than Olive Garden. The meats are OK too, but at $20 a plate or more they should be! And never go here on a holiday because it gets way too crowded.
Tom’s Jr. – This is a hamburger stand, but they do have the biggest breakfast burrito I’ve ever gotten. Some people complain that it has too much potato in it, but one will never complain that it doesn’t fill you up.
