Cholada Thai

As you drive out to Malibu, one of the first things you notice (or completely miss) on PCH is a tiny little blue shack that looks like a bait shop abandoned since the 80’s. That’s Cholada, and it’s home to the best Thai food on the beach. In an area largely dominated by musty seafood restaurants and overpriced chains catering to wandering tourists, Cholada is a total original and your one and only spot for a solid plate of pad se ew after a day in the sand.
