Jitlada - Expanded Southern Menu

We dropped by Jitlada today for lunch, as we've been doing once a week for months in order to explore the Southern menu.
Jazz excitedly showed us the NEW Southern menu - now 145 (?!) items. Overwhelming. We ordered #100 the Morning Glory/Shrimp salad (batter-fried morning glories with shrimp, red onion, cilantro and a spicy dressing). Crunchy and delicious. We also had the sator bean/pork belly stir fry (#142) at Jazz's urging. It's similar to the sator bean/soft shell crab stir fry, but with the tender (unctuous?) pork belly it reaches a whole new dimension.
Sorry no pix - we will learn to use the camera soon. Jitlada fans, give the new menu a try!

      Thanks very much for the report, and thank you even more for including the dish numbers. Sometimes it's difficult to figure out exactly which dish was ordered, when a hound reports that they really liked the "rice with shrimp and sauce".

        Sweet Jesus. Wonderful!
