Hollywood: Hoy Ka – Ord Noodle
The Skinny: Hoy Ka is the new name for the Legendary Thai Noodle House ORD NOODLE. The place is in the heart of Thai Town in Hollywood and its probably one of the most authentic restaurants for Thai in all of LA. I’ve been coming to this haunt for years and just because the name’s changed, the food and quality has definitely stayed the same!
The High: I ordered the classic Hoy Ka Noodle Soup (chicken version) and my buddy ordered the Roast Duck Noodle Soup. Both were savory and both dishes Spice level were Magma/Volcanic. You can choose to get the noodles either, skinny, skinny flat, or the wide flat noodles! I chose the wide flat noodles and they were amazing. The soup is also great for hangovers in case you were wondering. Add some of the Green Chili sauce or pickled chilis for extra heat if you want to sweat out all those toxins from a night out drinking in Hollywood.
The Low: What can I say…there is almost nothing wrong with this place! We went in and it was packed at 1pm and they actually had the AC on which is a plus since the old owner of ORD used to never turn that on! The bad thing was that they ran out of diet coke and everyone knows I’m addicted to that stuff so I had to settle for a Thai Iced Tea which was decent.
Would you come back again? UM….YES…I will continue to eat at this spot at least a few times a month…and will continue promote them for free to friends because
1. they’re freakin good
2. they’re freakin cheap
3. they’re as authentic as you can get according to House of Glam Rep, DAVID CHOU
