In tomorrow's, L.A. Times, S. Irene takes one of her rare ethnic forays to Jitlada, awarding a well-deserved two stars. Who says she only reviews fancy pants places where dinner costs $150? I'm glad she also mentions the desserts -- it's so easy to fill up on the great main dishes, but Jitlada's Thai desserts are the best I've had outside the Lotus of Siam.
(In case anyone's keeping track, EatingLA first reviewed Jitlada's new Southern Thai menu in June 2007.)
