Everyone has a secret. It could be something covered by the NDA you had to sign after working on The Bachelorette, or something a little less serious (but equally important), like which streets near your house don’t have any overnight parking restrictions. But sometimes, your secret needs to be shared.
Which brings us to Otus Kitchen, the West Hollywood Thai restaurant with a secret you should definitely know about: They serve a truly great breakfast.
You wouldn’t guess it when you walk in. Otus resembles most other restaurants in this part of town – it’s bright and modern-looking, with a mix of small tables and communal seating, potted succulents, and a menu full of excellent Thai classics like crispy rice, moo ping, and chicken wings. But its breakfast menu is why we end up here three times a week.
The Kai-Kata is usually our first priority – a Thai breakfast set served with OJ or Vietnamese coffee, grilled bread, and a little pan of eggs and meat. If may sound simple, but the flavors aren’t – it’s a tangy mix of sour ground chicken and sweet sausage, and the addition of the eggs make it a perfect way to start your day. It’s also just $8, so you can justify stopping in multiple days in a row (or at least that’s how we justify it).
