Malibu is probably not the first neighborhood that comes to mind for a Thai meal. But this 17-year-old hut right on the PCH should make you think again. Some tables are facing the sunset, others are in a quieter outdoor patio: in both cases, the service will be expeditious. Extend your meal by starting with golden bags, crispy dumplings tied like gift wrap. Continue with drunken noodles or pad see ew, and maybe a panang sea bass. And you’ll end up changing your mind about Malibu.
