Between West Hollywood & Eagle Rock

If you worked in West Hollywood and lived in Eagle Rock where would you take your spouse (who loves spice and lots of flavor) for a eating adventure on the way home after work for under $25?

      This is actually pretty close to where we it might be a great "regular" for us. Some of the items remind me of dishes on the menu at Blue Hen, which is in Eagle Rock. I've downloaded the menu...and it's on my list of stops. Thanks for the suggestion.

        The Owner/ chef is the very same that started Blue Hen. She sold it to start Good Girl.

          Well now we'll definitely drop in. Thanks for the info.

        Now the Southern Thai menu at Jitlada sounds like something my husband would love. We'll drive by on the way home tonight to check out the flow of humanity...and if it's not too bad...we'll probably stop by. Thanks for the suggestion Obessed.

          Got to Jitlada before the dinner rush...and everyone was so friendly. Food = spicy...flavorful and all around yummy. We'll definitely be visiting Jitlada regularly...I need to work my way through all the curry dishes...and the Southern Thai menu. (Except for maybe the catfish dishes...I've never been a big fan of the mudfish.)

          My husband enjoyed your suggestion as well...and has noted that he needs to NOT eat the Pork in Spicy Garlic sauce again. He had to resort to a Thai Tea to cut the burn...and even begged for some cucumbers to help as well.

          1. re: anekab

            I'm so glad you enjoyed Jitlada and thanks for reporting back. I need to make a visit there soon (I'm actually reverse from you - live in West Hollywood and work in Glendale) so I could easily pick up on the way home and think I will do so soon! Agree with the reco for Marouch also. Keep us updated on your dining adventures.

      2. How about Marouch at Santa Monica & Edgemont?

          This is a great suggestion...and will have to give it a try. I've never been to Marouch, so it edges to the top of the list. Even more so...since everything I've read has been positive.

        2. After last night's great meal at Jitlada...we have decided to break out of our food slump and start a new habit with a weekly "Dining Adventure Date". Who knew my "Meat & Potatoes Man" would be so adventurous. :-D

            That's so awesome! I gotta make it to Jiltada, it's hard to get me out of the eastside.

          2. i travel from weho to ER all the time- jitlada is my #1 suggestion. been wanting to try marouch and good girl dinette for a while. also, singapore's banana leaf in the original farmers market on third/fairfax, soot bull jeep for korean bbq, but i'd totally go to jitlada!

              It's been forever since I've stopped in at the Farmer's Market. In fact, just two days ago we drove by and I thought about stopping...but we were headed to King Taco. My father took us to Farmer's Market almost every weekend to check out the there even a butcher still there? As a kid, I loved to watch the bakery ladies put loaves of bread into the slicer, pick out the fresh fruit, and sit down to my Dupar's chicken pot pie. Aaahhh...the memories.

              1. re: anekab

                there are two butchers. the farmers market still has some great spots. you should check it out!
