Sticky Rice


In July 2021, the popular Thai food stall inside Grand Central Market expanded to Highland Park, taking over the walk-up window outside The Goldfish on York Blvd. The menu is closer to the one you’d find at the Echo Park location, which is to say, it’s fairly expansive with everything from boat noodle soup to tom yum salad to their perfectly sweet and savory panang curry we rank among our favorite versions in town. Right now, the window is open Tuesday through Sunday, 6pm to “whenever,” making it a great late-night option.
