Northern Thai street food that goes with booze? Yes please!
“In Thai, it’s called ‘aharn klam lao’ which roughly translates to ‘food to facilitate drinking.’ That’s at the heart of what we do. We make food for drunkards”. ~ Chef Kris Yenbamroong, Night + Market
SAUSAGE! Front: Fermented sour pork sausage balls from Isan (northeastern Thailand). They are best eaten with the chili, ginger, peanuts and raw cabbage.
Back: Sai Uah sausage from Chiengrai. It’s a grilled herb sausage which you eat with nam prik noom and a mortar-pounded relish of chili, roasted shallots and garlic. Kris makes both sausages in house.

Many thanks to Sarah St. Lifer for her assistance on this post!
We started ordering from the DineLA menu but obviously enjoyed so much more!
On those rare occasions when Peter and I don’t have dinner plans, we sometimes head up to Laurel Tavern, our favorite pub on Ventura Blvd.
It’s just a few minutes from our house, and even though they’re known for a terrific selection of beers, we actually go for the food.
After we hustle a couple of seats (it’s a popular joint), we check out the chalkboard on the wall for specials. Then we hunker down with cocktails and share a few plates of WAY above average pub grub.
