Need suggestiin for tonight - chinese hollywood area
Have family in town from pennsylvania and need accessible but interesting idea for dinner tonight. Thy have 3 teenagers who are a bit sheltered on the food thing and my toddler will be with us (who has more diverse taste than the lot of them put together...). The suggestion was they wanted chinese. Would love a place that has something more intriguing for me but wont freak them out by not having anything tame for them. Dont think leaving hollywood or close surrounding areas is in the cards.
re: mc michael
There's no Chinese to speak of in Hollywood. Chowhounds have complained about this for decades.
I say go Thai, though not necessarily to Jitlada, if folks' tastes are "sheltered". Many places in Thaitown make stuff, particularly in the noodle category, which is actually more authentically Chinese than the usual Panda/Changs fare. BBQ duck noodle soup, for instance, in a number of Thai places is almost indistinguishable from the stuff I was eating in Chinese places in San Francisco in 1967...
Palm, Yai (though the Hollywood branch was closed for vacation last week), and Ocha in it's many incarnations all come to mind.
