Pastrami Pad Kee Mao @ntmrkt In Silverlake just makes me want to shed a tear. As a second gen Thai American with parents who also had a Thai restaurant—this evolution of such a Thai street food favorite hit all the right notes and does so authentically. The pastrami was shaved super thin and the rice noodles was chewingly soft, all with the familiar notes of spiciness and herby thai basil and peppercorn. It’s a combo that seemed so meant for each other that only a person growing up in the US would know to put together with pad kee mao.
Everything too about Night + Market Song was so much fun! The table cloths, pink bead curtains, tight seating and the bright “Larb King” sign, all made for such a fun and evolved Thai food in LA experience. Love, love, LOVE this place.
Also ordered the Thai Fried Chicken sandwich with Som Tum, Crab Fried Rice and Roti with condensed milk for dessert. Alllllllllllllll so tasty. Need to go back and want to take my parents!
