In 1979, Sarintip “Jazz” Singsanong showed up in Los Angeles with a attache and all of $200 to her name. Twenty-seven years later, in 2006, she and her brother Suthiporn “Tui” Sungkamee, the earlier of the 12 children, took over Jitlada, a accepted Thai restaurant in Hollywood, with Tui alive as chef and Jazz positioned at the advanced of the house. They boring adapted Jitlada, specializing in the ambrosial southern Thai affable they knew from home and architecture a band afterward in the process.
Beyond the food, so abundant of the success of Jitlada revolves about your accord with your customers. Can you allocution about this band and what the barter beggarly to you?
Singsanong: It’s love. The adulation is in the food. I consistently acquaint people, we baker with love, and chef Tui loves to cook.
Tui is in the markets, like, bristles times a day. He has to go. Aback he picks the fish, the angle has to be clear-eyed. The vegetable, it charge be heavy, because aback it is abundant it is beginning inside. If it is light, it’s not fresh. That’s what he did growing up. You know, every bowl he cooks or tests, anybody is afraid by his palate.
I met one chump aftermost night. He told me, “I alive in Canada. Montreal. I flew actuality because I capital to eat your food.” And he acclaimed his altogether actuality aftermost night. I gave him a T-shirt from Thailand. I absolutely acknowledge that, and I don’t apperceive what abroad to do. You’re not activity to bethink a thousand barter actuality — but all the barter bethink your love.
You accept a cardinal of acclaimed customers, and abounding of these barter are acclaimed chefs. Do you see your cuisine influencing the dishes of added chefs and restaurants?
Singsanong: We access a lot. I see Roy Choi. I see Ludo [Lefebvre]. Brian Voltaggio has been actuality too. The SLS chef. And afresh Wolfgang Puck’s sous chef.
One time, the sous chef [at a acclaimed restaurant] told me, “You didn’t alike apperceive that my arch chef is in your restaurant every lunch.” Later, aback Tui and I went to the restaurant, we had one of the dishes, the mussels. And we accustomed our flavors — it was our attic soup. I acquisition out later, of course, he makes it like us because he eats here.
So chefs appear to your restaurant because they are afflicted by you. But what influences you?
Sungkamee: For me aback I cook, I don’t appetite to chase everyone. They may say about a food, “Very good.” But I say it’s alone OK. It may be actual acceptable for you, but not for me. I accept to assurance myself.
I chase my own [palate]. I actualize aggregate myself. You know, [my Thai aliment has] three, four tastes. Sweet, salt, and sour. Or spicy. With some dishes, we amalgamate three flavors. Some food, alone two flavors. Three agency sweet, acerb and salt. Two flavors, it agency alkali and spicy.
You’re creating a accord with flavors. It’s the adorableness of cooking.
Singsanong: Chef Tui went to Italian restaurant with his daughter. He came aback and brought me the food, saying, “I paid for this but I cannot eat it.” Aback I tasted it, I was bedlam so loud. We are not activity to aftertaste that because Italian aliment is too mild. That’s the aberration with Thai affable — we adulation spice.
When you do go out, area do you like to eat?
Singsanong: Aback I go out, I adulation Japanese food. But, you know, with Thai food, no one is able like us. And aback I aftertaste [other foods], there’s about no taste.
Thai aliment is so atomic with flavor, area with added cuisines, such as Japanese and Italian, the acidity is added subtle.
Sungkamee: Yes. There’s little to taste. [With Thai food] we aftertaste aggregate actual strong, really. The sashimi, you know, sashimi is so attenuate — about no taste.
Singsanong: We adulation the beginning flavors.
You assume to accept a admirable relationship. Advanced and aback of the house. What’s it like alive together?
Singsanong: You know, aback best of the barter come, they stop to allocution to me. I consistently alarm my brother out. It’s arbitrary that I’m in the advanced with people, and I absolutely acknowledge that after Tui I wouldn’t accept this. That’s why, aback they allocution about the acceptable food, I go and acquaint Tui to appear out. I acquaint him, “I appetite you to apprehend what they say.”
If I told you, you would never accept that we were enemies aback we were kids. He was the baton of all the boys, and there were alone three girls in the house. One time, we fought and I fell and I hit him, and he kicked me and bisected of my face was blue. [Gasps] He was kicked out of the house. And I didn’t allocution to him for article like bristles years, until aerial school.
You appear from a ample family, with 12 kids. How did that assignment out, and aback did you reconcile?
Singsanong: I lived in addition boondocks [Bangkok], and I bare money for school. Tui beatific me to academy — and Tui alone accomplished aerial school. He was the alone one in the ancestors that didn’t go to college, because Mom had 12 kids. It was his responsibility. He would assignment with my uncle to accelerate money to Mom. I will consistently account him; he’s like a ancestor to me. He is such a acceptable brother.
In aerial school, I confused to Bangkok. Tui was a day-tripper guide, and he would booty bodies to the islands. And afresh on the side, he did restaurant assignment by himself. But the restaurants never formed because he would consistently accord out chargeless food. His restaurants were consistently packed, but [there was] no money. I sat bottomward with him one time, and bodies would airing in and he’d say, “Don’t accord him a bill, because he did electric assignment for me,” or, “Don’t accord them the bill because I apperceive their mother.” And I asked him, “Where do you get the money to buy food?” I saw bristles bodies eat and afresh they all got chargeless food. That’s why he’s bigger in the aback and I’m in the front.
How did you end up alive calm professionally? And aback did you appear to Jitlada?
Singsanong: I was a chump of Jitlada, aback in 1979. The restaurant was accepted in 1978, 1979, 1980. It was like the accomplished advanced apple was talking about the best Thai aliment in L.A. The bedmate came from Northern Thailand, and the wife came from the aforementioned boondocks in Southern Thailand as us. I was attractive for the rice bloom I knew growing up. And they had the salad, but alone gave you one dosage of the sauce. Later, aback we took over the restaurant, we afflicted it.
I anticipate Tui makes the best booze for the salad. [Tui laughs] Usually, it smells fishy. Alike in Thailand, aback you adjustment rice salad, you can aroma the fish. But not his. He cooks aggregate with adulation and care.
So you started as a customer.
Singsanong: She [a after owner] chock-full me in the temple. She didn’t acquaint me the truth, that they had bankrupt bottomward the abode for four months. She aloof said, “Oh, my admirable mum died, I appetite to go aback to Thailand.“ They’d been aggravating to sell, but capital a aerial price. That, and the name had gone downhill, because the aliment was not the aforementioned as aback it was run by the aboriginal owner. I told Tui, “This is your dream, right? To accept Southern Thai in Hollywood. This abode is opening, you should go.”
Sungkamee: There were four [potential] owners, and I was the aftermost one. Aback I went to accommodate with the owner, he said, “I already accept bodies absorbed in Jitlada.” And afresh I said, “If no buys it, alarm me. I’ll appear to allocution to you.”
And no one abroad capital it. The amount was too high, and there was no parking. I negotiated. And I adopted money.
Singsanong: We both formed to accomplish payments. The aboriginal day they opened, I came back. I aloof got aback from Thailand. Tui said, “Hey, I charge you.” I started allowance him, and afresh it was unbelievable. The bodies came aback like crazy.
How abounding dishes do you accept on the menu?
Sungkamee: Almost 400. This year.
How did you get into cooking? What aggressive you?
Sungkamee: I’ve formed with aliment continued time — I started about 5 years old. I bethink cogent my grandma and grandpa, “Teach me. Advise me how to bark the garlic.” Later, I’d appetite to leave and they’d say, “Don’t go. Don’t run away. Sit down, please. Bark me added garlic.” I would run abroad [from the kitchen] again, and they’d alarm me back. “Sit down. Don’t go.” And afresh they gave me the chiles — broiled chiles — to peel. Every week, anniversary to week, they would do that.
When I was about 7, my grandma said, “Go cut lemongrass for me. Or, accompany the galanga. Or, go aces up the turmeric bulbs beneath the ground.” I would dig them up and accompany them to her. One piece, two pieces, at a time. After that, they would say, “Go to the tamarind timberline and accompany aback beginning tamarind for a curry.” I would ascend the timberline to get the tamarind.
Singsanong: We abstruse aggregate from scratch.
Sungkamee: After that, I would watch Grandma accomplish curry. I alone watched, but I didn’t apperceive yet how to accomplish it. But I saw what she put central in the mortar. Too young, you know. I was alone 11 years old, and would watch.
When my mom and dad adapted the food, I would sit bottomward and watch them cooking. In the aboriginal morning, sometimes my dad would booty me to the bazaar with him. If we capital beef, we would go to this shop. Fish? We would go to that shop. He took me everywhere to advise me area and how to buy. I would go every anniversary for years, until I knew area to buy everything. Finally, my dad said, “You go yourself.” And aboriginal in the morning, 4 or 5 o’clock, I’d go.
So aboriginal you abstruse to aces ingredients, afresh you watched the affable process, and afresh you abstruse to shop. Aback did you alpha affable yourself?
Singsanong: At 12 years. Because we were earlier — we larboard the abode about 14. Every one of us had to cook; the earlier ones would baker for the younger.
Sungkamee: At the time, you know, there was no gas. We would baker with copse and charcoal. No gas. No electric.
Singsanong: We didn’t accept electric at all. Alike the rice. Aback authoritative rice, you know, you cascade the baptize in with the rice. We acclimated to alcohol the baptize from the above rice aback we were kids, instead of milk. There were 12 kids. That’s a lot! At home, we were affable every day.
Did you anytime anticipate you would be this successful?
Sungkamee: It makes me blessed aback the barter say they adulation our food. I say, “This is home food. Not from a restaurant.” These are recipes from my grandma, grandpa, my mom and dad. And afresh I accept experience, at atomic 50 years, alive with food. [He is 64.]
Singsanong: One thing, you know, it’s alleged adulation at home. Aback the barter come, you feel this is your ancestors coming. You accept to do the best. Hospitality is added important than anything.
