LA has a number of vegan Thai restaurants, and for the most part, they’re terrible. Save for Araya’s Place. The Beverly Grove strip mall joint started in Seattle, and has been around for almost 30 years. And while we’ll always prefer our curry with meat, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t think about their avocado curry more than we probably should. The green curry itself is outstanding, but the avocado mixes so well with it, you wonder why more people don’t serve it. If you’re a vegan, you can’t get much better than this place. And if you’re not, the statement still stands.
