This tour takes guests through the only Thai Town outside of Asia. You'll sample diverse Thai dishes from the four different regions of Thailand, all represented in this small ethnic village in East Hollywood. A guide will take you beyond Pad Thai to the heart of Thai culture, Thai American history, and the local culinary scene. Some of the highlights include authentic rare Thai curries, pork jerky, and a sampling at a Thai dessert house.
This tour may not be suited for vegetarians (all dishes contain fish sauce/shrimp paste/oyster sauce), seafood/shellfish allergies, vegans, and for people who cannot have spicy food.
Guests will be led on a route of about six eateries on roughly 6 walking blocks. This tour lasts about four hours. Some restaurant stops and tastings may include Thai omelette at Red Corner Asia, papaya salad and sticky rice at Ruen Pair, duck noodle soup at Sanam Luang Café, and dessert samplings at Silom Market.
The tour will begin at the Golden Thai Aponsi Angel statue next to T-Mobile in the Hollywood and Western shopping complex. The address of the complex is 5429 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90027. The tour guide can be identified by the bags with 'Six Taste' on the sides that he or she will be carrying. He or she will also likely be carrying a clipboard.
Parking can be found on the street or at various plazas.
