On this particular day, I was on a mission for one of my favorite Southeast Asian street foods: wonton noodles. I presented Sapp Coffee Shop with the challenge of pleasing a customer coming in expecting something specific. I had a vision for what I wanted put in front of me. I wanted slightly chewy freshly made egg noodles as a base for my dish. For a topping, nothing but thinly sliced sweet roasted pork would do. The wontons? They had to be steamed to order and packed with shrimp. I wanted spicy pepper flakes, peanuts, a perfect balance of sugar and lime, and I wanted Chinese vegetables that still had crunch. I wanted the noodles without broth, but just the right amount of stock at the bottom so that when I mixed everything together the dish was not dry. I’m picky, I know. In Thailand I could get the perfect dish, so this is what I craved... and this is what I got. Sapp is a true strip mall gem.

If you like fiery and authentic Thai food, then get yourself over to Thai Town, just east of Hollywood. And if you're a noodle geek, you're going to want to start here at Sapp Coffee Shop. One star for atmosphere - it'll remind you of a high school lunch cafeteria - but five stars for tasting just like Thailand street hawkers' carts. FYI the most famous dish on the menu is "Boat Noodles."
