The Next Best Thing to Brunch in Bangkok? Brunching at So Long, Hi.


I will resist every urge in my being to write anything punny when describing So Long, Hi, the super casual, oasis of tasty Thai street food and dishes in Downtown L.A.

Hello, phat pants! Well, that didn't take very long. No, really, when you chow down at So Long, Hi's Thai Family Picnic, basically the restaurant's version of a family-style, Thai brunch where you sit elbow to elbow with fellow diners as you reach for Thai ribs and wings and other all-you-can-eat, off-menu surprises exclusive to the picnic, served omakase-style at the chef's whim, like a great d.j. reading the dance floor. So Long, Hi is owned and operated by on-fire restaurateur Dave Tewasart (Side Chick, Sticky Rice, Monkey Bar, Matcha Matcha, RBTA) with Bryan Sharafkhah-Sharp (White Guy Pad Thai) behind the wheels of steel, er, wok of steel. Your stomach(s) is in very good hands.
