Last weekend, a tiny Thai market took over the former eyesore that was Crest Jr. Market liquor store, a neighbor to Howard's Famous Bacon and Avocado Burgers. AAA Thai offers a small selection of very low-cost traditional dishes made in the kitchen and left heated at a counter up front, with offerings of fried rice, curries, and chicken, veggie, and fish dishes. The store is also stocked with fresh produce and a light selection of Thai sauces and cooking products. A deli counter in the back was not yet open upon our visit, but looks to have potential. The new market, while not exactly Thuan Phat Superstore, certainly adds an improved charm to the block. Take a look at our slide show of the space.
AAA Thai Market, 11127 Venice Blvd. Palms. 310-287-9999.
