Saladang Song is the sister restaurant to neighboring Saladang, which offers traditional Thai dishes. Within its concrete and geometric metalwork facade, Saladang Song experiments with more unusual Thai combinations like the tod-mon-kao-pohd (sweet corn cakes topped with peanut sauce) and seasonal pumpkin custard. Outdoor seating is great for Southern California's balmy evenings; and though crowds on weekend nights create a boisterous atmosphere, the spacious layout offers a lot of seating options, especially for large groups. This is one of few Thai restaurants in the area to open for breakfast, and it also offers lunch specials for under $10.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
