12/7/09 Jitlada in New Yorker Magazine!
We are mentioned on page 45 in an article about L.A. food writer, Jonathan Gold. It’s written by Dana Goodyear and appears in the November 9, 2009 issue.
Gold started to reminisce about the spiciness of the spiciest kua kling that Jazz had ever served him, the first day they met. “It was glowing, practically incandescent,” he said. “You bite into it and every alarm in your body goes off at once. It’s an overload on your pain receptors, and then the flavors just come through. It’s not that the hotness overwhelms the dish, which is what people who don’t understand Thai cooking always say, but that the dish is revealed for the first time–it’s flavor–as you taste the details of fruit and turmeric and spices that you didn’t taste when it was merely extremely hot. It’s like a hallucination.” Jonathan Gold

10/25/09 Jitlada was recently featured on the “Next Iron Chef”!
“Innovation is one of the most important traits of an Iron Chef and both challenges in this episode must embody that trait. First, the chefs disperse to four of the best Asian eateries in Los Angeles (including Jitlada) where they quickly taste and then attempt to recreate the house specialty from each restaurant. The chefs are armed only with their discerning palates to figure out how the dish is made. Next, the chefs are tasked with innovating and creating a new dish that is a hybrid of Asian flavors and American culinary sensibilities. The next chef is eliminated.” More about the Episode
