It's a relatively difficult proposition to find decent Thai cuisine on the Westside. Aside from Moo Moo Thai, and perhaps Bangkok West, it's just easier to schlep over to Thai Town for some of best Thai cooking in America. But it's always nice to have the option nearby, which is why Pan Kam Thai Kitchen, which opened in early October in on the corner of Sepulveda and Washington Place in Culver City, is a nifty find.
The menu boasts a classics like tom yum and chicken larb, but also some more of the dishes one would find in Thai Town, like crying tiger (a signature at Jitlada), pork jerky, pad ka prow (stir fried meat with chili and garlic), and crab fried rice. Pan Kam offers ten lunch special deals for $6.50 daily, with bites like pad see ew and green curry. Early Yelpage has been pretty positive, with the noodles and curries garnering early praise. Open 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily. [Eaterwire]
