Sticky Rice was one of the first of the newer crop of vendors to begin serving inside Grand Central Market a few years ago. With a tight menu of dependable Thai street food favorites, it marked a sea change for the market, which eventually added a slew of popular places like EggSlut, G&B Coffee, Valerie, and Olio Pizzeria.

Now LA Mag reports that Sticky Rice has gotten a nifty upgrade, essentially flipping their location to behind their previous stall. That means more noodle dishes like classic khao soi noodle soup or pineapple fried rice. There's also desserts like kanok krok, a popular coconut custard sweet that you could also find at somewhere like Bhan Kanom Krok in Thai Town.
