Salaya Kitchen Plant-Based Kitchen

Los Feliz

This Thai spot has so many items on their menu that feature coconut, you could make a four-course meal out of it. For starters, they offer their Tom Kah (a Thai spicy and sour coconut soup) and Coconut Noodle Soup. For mains, they cook up a range of curries that are like Thai curries usually are—coconut milk-based—in options of their Panang, Yellow, Green, Pineapple, Duck, Pumpkin, Avocado Green, and Crispy Fish Panang. For sides, try their Coconut Rice. And, of course, they serve fresh young coconuts to drink. Finally, finish it all off with their Coconut Ice Cream for dessert.
