Pailin isn’t the most well-known name in Thai Town, and its dime-sized space (there are maybe eight tables total inside) isn’t going to jump out at you driving down Hollywood Blvd, but you need to know about it. This place is all about Northern Thai cuisine, and for us that, above all, means one thing: khao soi. For anyone unfamiliar, it’s essentially a curry noodle soup and it’s god’s greatest gift to mankind. Pailin has the best version in town. The tiny space is colorful and kitschy and a perfect quick lunch spot. The spicy shrimp balls are another must-order.
