Hidden away in the Santa Monica Airport is this off-the-beaten-path spot, serving a type of Asian cuisine with everything from fried catfish to various insects. Frankly, I havenít tried the bugs; there are plenty of other dishes to select from.
I particularly like the Pad Thai noodles with shrimp. Typhoon has a real casual feel and an assortment of unusual dishes. It is right on the runway of the Santa Monica Airport so if you like airplanes it provides a great view and atmosphere.
