Goh Time

Friday afternoon I headed back to the corner of Melrose/Ogden to shoot some stills for Surrogate Valentine.

Photo prop – an iced Vanilla Chai from Cafe Aroma (straw garnish skillz from my NYC cocktail waitressing days)

It was sweeeeeeet!!!! I drank about 1/4 of it.

After we wrapped I spent the rest of the time hanging with Goh – for dinner Abe and I took him to Jitlada for Thai food

I blogged about the restaurant back in June, and again when I sampled their dishes at Plate by Plate; it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places in Los Angeles, despite the long waits (both to sit down, and to actually eat).

We ordered all vegetarian so everyone could share. I had one of the Thai Spring Rolls dipped in a sweet sauce.

Despite the deep fried casing, it was more chewy overall than crispy.

The requisite stir fried morning glory was the first to arrive, in all its garlic-y goodness

Dug in right away, with some white rice

Next came the Ginger Saute – with tofu as the protein

More rice and morning glory too!

And finally, the yellow curry – a coconut-based one with potatoes, onions and carrots. I asked for it with veggies, instead of the other option – which was added tofu/meat – but I only caught an additional piece of broccoli and cabbage or two.

Really delicious, but really really soup-y. Order with the added protein instead so you get more bang for your buck.

Added a few spoonfuls to the side…

Plate #3 – more curry with more rice, plus a final taste of everything else.

Everything above was pretty mild – we didn’t venture into the back menu – the Southern Thai one – advertised as “Real Chili, Real Spicy!”  Goh had staged this picture while we were waiting beforehand – though he did wind up eating a red chili by accident …

Reminder to Angelenos – “The People I’ve Slept With” is playing at the Sunset 5 all this week! We just got some wonderful reviews, including examiner.com and The LA Times. I’ll be at the Q&A tonight after the 7:30 pm screening, and at the Libertine after-party sponsored by Audrey Magazine (RSVP info here).

    I wish spring rolls were super healthy for you because I could easily eat three to four everyday! I hope you have a nice Sunday and Saturday evening…
