Pink Pepper Restaurant Review

: Tony Boon opened Pink Pepper in 1989 around the corner from the west end of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Thai restaurant with a rose-toned interior and gold Buddha imagery soon became a favorite of Hollywood types. After several years in business, the café plateaued. In 2005, Boon’s Melrose Thai restaurant, Erawan, closed. Chef Malee Chantra switched over from Erawan and reinvigorated the long-standing eatery with several signature dishes from her former establishment, including green curry fried rice, Thai herb-crusted salmon and a rib-eye main course known as “crying tiger.” There are also well-executed standbys like green papaya salad with shrimp and spicy lime dressing and spicy eggplant with black bean sauce and garlic. For dessert, expect sticky rice with mango.
