Introducing Night+Market Song, Kris Yenbamroong and Sarah St. Lifer's second production, modeled after Yenbamroong's hugely successful Thai street food restaurant in West Hollywood, Night + Market. Officially open Monday, the eatery sports similar neon orange and blue colors, as well as a gleeful pink exterior that might just make this the happiest place to eat in Silver Lake. Inside, makeshift tables topped with whimsical covers brought over by Yenbramoong and St. Lifer on their recent trip to Thailand, and a large vinyl banner that's all the rage in Bangkok's design trends. On said banner, a listing in Thai of Night+Market's most popular dishes, including salads, laab, and noodles. Unique to Song will be the pork and MSG soup, as well as a few other specialties not found in West Hollywood.
Though there is no beer or wine yet, the license should come through in the next few months. In the meantime, dine on casual and spicy Thai bites like various riffs on papaya salad, laabs aplenty, a mushroom salad, as well as time-tested favorites like party chicken wings, crispy rice salad, and jungle curry (holy basil, eggplant, ginger, young peppercorns and poultry).
Night + Market Song will not accept reservations, so be prepared to wait, or sign your name on a list while shopping for bags at Clare Vivier or oggling cakes at Lark across the street. The neighborhood spot will eventually serve lunch and take out, making it easy for locals to grab a quite bite when the sun's out, or take the fiery dishes to the confines of their own home. Open 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
