LAX-C

Best Party Supplies, October 2009
 
 
We’ve often wondered whether the mural of Aztecs, Vikings, and the Starship Enterprise on the walls of LAX-C is shorthand for world peace or if it implies the panoply of foods within. This enormous commercial grocer is open to the public, and we swear it’s got to be the biggest Thai supermarket this side of Bangkok. We love the affordable paper goods and the cleanup supplies in addition to the endless variety and the insane prices (top sirloin for $2.09 a pound? carrots for $6.95 a case?). The adjacent marketplace is full of decorative art objects that can turn your dining room into a scene from The King and I.
