Pla Kamin at Night Market
The whole-fried idiot fish, or kinki fish, with its cartoonish eye sockets showed up on the DineLA menu this summer, but it continues to make regular appearances. Fried with fresh turmeric, garlic and lemongrass, this is a traditional Southern Thai specialty that chef Kris Yenbamroong has made his own.
