Red Corner Asia 001

Aw, delicious testicle soup.

Today was a beautifully sunny and warm day in LA. Just God’s way of flipping off the snowy east coast.

I went on a hike at Griffith Park (I just saw on the news, a human skull was found a few hours after I left! I hope they don’t trace it back to me)

Nancy and I drove to Thai Town and just randomly picked the first restaurant that looked good. But that one was closed so we ate at Red Corner Asia, instead.

There were half a dozen Thai places in the plaza, so we pointed to the first one that didn’t have a “B” Health rating.

So funny, the FDA allows a certain amount of rat droppings and creepy crawlies to fall into foods like tomato sauces and peanut butter but one little cockroach crawls across the floor to feast on a dropped piece of lettuce just as the health inspector shows up and suddenly they’re ready to shut the place down.

Which I’m fine with.

I don’t want cockroaches eating my lettuce.

Nancy and I ordered the chicken satay to start. Very moist. The chicken, that is.

Then I ordered the Kung Pao Pasta, which was oily as heck. Yes, I said heck. But it was still quite tasty as it slithered down my throat.

The tastiest thing was the coconut soup pictured at the top. Wow, SO good and salt central!

All in all, this place doesn’t really stand out from any of the other thai joints in the area. But our waitress looked just the singer Rhianna (only Asian) so if you’re into that, stop on by and tell em Bun Boy sent you (they won’t know what you’re talking about).
