When Anthony Bourdain came to LA to film the Travel Channel's No Reservations, Chef Jet Tila, an expert on Thai Town, took Bourdain on a tour of the area that ended up as a segment on the show. Now, renowned chef and recent Iron Chef challenger Tila leads foodies and culinary adventurers on a tour of the area he grew up in. Accompanied by Tila and Melting Pot Food Tours, you’ll visit a Thai grocery store, get recipes and insider information about the area, and visit some of Tila's favorite Thai restaurants for Thai specialties such as jade noodles, papaya salad, and coconut/banana fritters. Be sure to make a reservation – there will be only 15 visitors per tour, and tickets are sure to sell out.
