Chef's Night Out: Night + Market Song
We hit the streets of Los Angeles with Kris Yenbamroong of Night +Market Song, getting blitzed on mezcal at Bar Amá, slurping nature’s aphrodisiac at L&E Oyster Bar, and dive-bombing Cheetahs’ stage with bills
LA native Kris Yenbamroong's defining moment came at age 13, when his parents sent him to Thailand's Red Light District to marinate in his surging hormones. Following a stint editing porn for VICE contributor Richard Kern, Yenbamroong returned to the family business—restaurants—opening Night +Market Song, where he plates Thai delicacies like Strip Club Fried Rice for Silverlake's "older, derelict, drunk uncle demographic."
Now a betrothed 30-something, Yenbamroong takes a page from his teen playbook for Chef's Night Out with pals, getting blitzed on mezcal at Bar Amá, slurping nature's aphrodisiac at L&E Oyster Bar, and dive-bombing Cheetahs' stage with bills as his Future Mrs. catnaps in the car.
