Like many Thai Town restaurants, Night + Market has a menu based on the bar snack. And you will find nearly every part of the pig portioned out into a kind of Thai equivalent to tapas, a unit of consumption carefully calibrated to the refreshment inherent in a single bottle of Singha. There is grilled pork collar, the Isaan favorite, which chef Kris Yenbamroong calls "toro" in honor of its extreme richness; and house-fermented sour sausage with peanuts, lime and raw bird peppers; and pig's ear fried with garlic and chile sauce. Pork belly? Of course, flavored with fish sauce; sweet, fried ribs with garlic; and a huge pork hock braised in soy. The fried pig tails are as hard to leave alone as popcorn — an 8-year-old of our acquaintance paused only briefly when he was informed that they weren't spareribs.
Night + Market is one of those restaurants where you walk in and you already KNOW it's going to be spicy. Bring on the ice water and napkins.
The authenticity and the flavor of their dishes here are phenomenal.
The fried pig tails... the chicken wings.. the pork toro...the larb...papaya salad... they are all seriously incredible. Sweet, spicy, crunchy, tangy, all the goods of Thai food. These were all appetizers/ small plates but great to share and at a great price. I didn't get to try any of their main dishes but this is one of the few places I know in LA that actually has ka soi (spicy noodle soup with grounded pork... yum).
If you can't take the heat, ask them to tone it down for you! They're all super friendly.
Parking sucks. Be warned.
Kris Yenbamroong is as much a cultural curator as he is a chef. At Night + Market, Yenbamroong presents the unadulterated, riotous flavors of Northern Thailand's street food in all their complexity. His menu on any given night is likely to... More »
You probably wouldn't expect to find L.A.'s best Thai street-food specialist on the Sunset Strip, and you probably wouldn't expect it to be affiliated with the relatively mainstream Talesai, to which it is attached like a leering evil twin. But... More »
Click here for Anne Fishbein's slide show. It is selfish, perhaps, to covet another city's Thai restaurant; to wonder what it might be like if a favorite kitchen were on Melrose instead of in, say, Kitsilano. Los Angeles probably has more... More »
There might be no better place to set your taste buds alight than at West Hollywood's temple to Northern Thai street food, Night + Market. Chef Kris Yenbamroong's cooking is distinctive -- funky fish sauce, pungent herbs and, perhaps most notably, searing chile heat. The papaya salad, cool and lime-tart at first, packs a lingering burn. The umami-rich shrimp-paste fried rice called kao kluk gapi is fortified with enough tiny bird's-eye chiles to make your collar steam. But the most... More »
