Let’s play a game: Song, WeHo, or Both? The goal is to better describe the differences and similarities between the two restaurants owned by Kris Yenbamroong – an incredibly talented chef who, having grown up in the family restaurant Talesai, went to study photography at NYU and then opened both Night + Market in West Hollywood and Silverlake (Song meaning “two” in Thai). The perfect place for a birthday dinner? WeHo. Insects on the menu? Both. Cocktails to sip on the patio? WeHo. A Thai beer or biodynamic wine to water down some pork toro? Song. A Gaeng Pa Nok Saap, i.e. spicy curry without coconut milk that will make the toughest guy cry? Both. A hour-wait for a table of four on a Saturday night? Song. A pad Thai which you can’t find anywhere else in Los Angeles, because it’s not over-sweet? Both. Daft Punk? WeHo. Beef tendon panang? Both, and fortunately because we love it even more than Daft Punk!
