The distinctive, earthy scent of fresh lemongrass greets you at the entrance of one of the hottest in Thai restaurants in Los Angeles: Sammy’s Thai BBQ. The space, at once peaceful and soothing, is decorated simply with Thai artifacts and memorabilia. The food is the focus here. The chefs make every dish with passion and love and you can tell with very single bite. Even the menu is written with that same passion -- describing each dish with a mixture of poetry and magic that makes it hard to choose from wok-fried ginger, which is for lovers, or wok-fried asparagus, the "new Asian vegetable sensation."
