Meet Jazz

“In 1979, Sarintip “Jazz” Singsanong showed up in Los Angeles with a suitcase and all of $200 to her name. In 2006, she and her brother Suthiporn “Tui” Sungkamee took over Jitlada, a long-established Thai restaurant in Hollywood. They slowly transformed Jitlada, specializing in the spicy southern Thai cooking they knew from home and building a cult following in the process (*excerpt from Chefsfeed chef profile).”
