What are Thai mermaids? I don’t know. But I love this lamp on display at Toi Thai on Sunset. I ate there a few weeks ago when I was in the neighborhood for a screening of “Epic Jukebox,” a collection of short films presented as part of the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival.
The funky eatery also used to have a location in Santa Monica, where I frequently dined on pad thai and got take out tofu and eggplant. The day it closed, my hometown lost one of its few truly cool, quirky and unique restaurants.
